-History of Special Effects.
-"The Art of the Film" for a sh*tload of top movies.
-Behind the scenes pics and personal stories for a sh*tload of top movies.
-An incredibly interesting motivating & captivating read.
All of this for $[...] (which I paid thru Amazon) is a complete steal and definitely a must have if you aspire to study or simply enjoy the special effects process.
The author managed to divide the chapters in the books into periods that mark the creations of Stan's legendary creatures. Aliens, Terminators, Predators, and the Jurassic Park's Dinosaurs lead the pack with the rest of the other smaller profiled Winston characters are featured in comprehensive and glorious coverages. Great stills, conceptual designs, behind the scene materials, whatever you ask for, this books fulfills. The writing by Jody Duncan is also very informative without being tiresome.
And I can get enough of Crash McCreery's artworks. One of Stan Winston's most prolific conceptualizers, his designs brought to life many of SWS monster charcaters. Here's hoping that one day, somebody will publish an "Art of Crash McCreery" book.
Thanks to Stan for being the ring leader of such a talented circus of artists!
