"A.I. Artificial Intelligence" was the extraordinary collaboration of two cinematic giants, Stanley Kubrick and Steven Spielberg. The book reveals how the project originated, how it was developed and how it was finally brought to fruition. At the heart of the book are over 250 stunning images by the film's conceptual artist, Chris Baker, many never before seen. Commissioned by Kubrick, conceived in response to A.I. story outlines and used in Spielberg's eventual production designs, these artworks display a breathtaking imagination and rare technical skill. Accompanying the drawings are extracts from Kubrick's notebooks and story treatments, stills from the finished film, and photographs of behind-the-scenes action, including pioneering animatronics and use of the virtual studio. This book a work of art as well as painstaking research is one that no film fan will want to be without.
