Editor’s Note

You might know his name, but it's a virtual guarantee you've watched a film featuring one of Sir Ken Adam's designs. The Oscar-winning production designer was responsible for some of the most memorable sets in history. He worked on seven James Bond films from Dr. No through Moonraker — including the vast volcanic lair from You Only Live Twice — and also worked with Stanley Kubrick, winning the aforementioned Academy Award for Barry Lyndon and designing the War Room set for Dr. Strangelove, which Steven Spielberg called "the best set that's ever been designed." This limited edition book looks at his career through the lens of sketches, concepts, and photographs culled from his archives, providing a unique, fascinating look at the creation of some of film's finest set designs. Weighing in at over eight pounds, the sizable hardbound tome is limited to 1,200 examples and arrives with an acrylic, engraved bookstand for elevated display.
