In the book, you'll find hundreds of images, including:
- Early concept art
- Pages/frames from the original graphic novel
- Costume design sketches
- Blueprints for various sets and the Owl Ship
- Character portraits
- Veidt Enterprises product ads
- Full-page screen shots from the movie
- Movie Posters
It's of special interest to me to see just how exactly they recreated the environments from the comic for the film. The close up images of background sets really drive home how meticulous the filmmakers were, even down to the action figures in Veidt's office. Very impressive, just don't expect lots to read. There are a few pages of text at the start of each chapter, but after that it's mainly images and the occasional caption. Even so, there is quite a lot to pour over whenever it strikes your fancy.
If you love the movie, this is a great companion piece.
I believe my only criticism is that I wished that they could have shown an example of how the process works in producing concept art for the movie; but that's my only little gripe. If you liked the movie & the book, this is for you.
