This book is such a joy - to hold, to read, to look, to keep. Annie’s designs are the most exquisite. She, more than any other graphic designer for film that I’m aware of, keeps on exceeding expectations, pushing the bar up high! Ample proof of this can be seen in the book - pages upon pages of sheer wonder to relish on. If only I could make everyone stand and stare at the glorious props and graphics that lie within. I've bought 3! Still in awe at the Mendl cake box of Grand Budapest Hotel fame! Looking forward to Vol.2 please!
Who'd expect anything less from Annie Atkins? The book is gorgeous to look at, with some really impressive details (like the 3D pencil shavings on the back cover). Gives a great insight into what it's like working as a graphic designer on film sets, the level of detail that's required to help immerse the viewer in the story. Highly recommended.
This wonderful book goes into the designs of Annie Atkins, who makes props for various films. It is so well designed and has really interesting writings on her work and inspiration. If you're interested in this area you will not be disappointed....
Such an inspiring, beautiful and creative book as a aspiring graphic designer! Annie Atkins is a true craftswoman of graphics for film! Highly recommend this book, it’s creativeness is catchy! Even if your not a designer, it’s definitely worth the read if you are interested in films! - Liv
I truly appreciated and LOVED this book. Annie Atkins provides a wonderful, insightful look into the world of design and it's intersection with prop making. As a film nerd, it was fascinating to read about all the little details that went into creating items (tea dying, stamp making, Linocut)! The book also resonated with me as a design educator - the use of Letraset, Linocut, vintage typewriters to convey and reflect the time period - just mesmerizing. Something I can't wait to share with my students for inspiration. Thank you, Annie!
