Just how big are the worlds we enter when we watch a movie? And just how far do the characters go? Cinemaps aims to show you, with exquisitely illustrated maps showing the locations in each film, and the paths characters took from place to place. Side bars give you trivia and additional commentary on specific locations, and each map is paired with an essay giving you a brief overview of the film and its geography. From Star Wars to Pulp Fiction, no film geography is too small or big to be displayed in this gorgeous book for film buffs and people who love to see all the details. All in all, 35 popular films are documented in this unique atlas, sure to bring hours of conversation and exploration to your favorite movie fan.
This beautifully illustrated atlas of beloved movies is an essential reference for cinephiles, fans of great films, and anyone who loves the art of mapmaking. Acclaimed artist Andrew DeGraff has created beautiful hand-painted maps of all your favorite films, from King Kongand North by Northwest to The Princess Bride, Fargo, Pulp Fiction, even The Breakfast Club--with the routes of major characters charted in meticulous cartographic detail. Follow Marty McFly through the Hill Valley of 1985, 1955, and 1985 once again as he races Back to the Future. Trail Jack Torrance as he navigates the corridors of the Overlook Hotel in The Shining. And join Indiana Jones on a globe-spanning journey from Nepal to Cairo to London on his quest for the famed Lost Ark. Each map is presented in an 11-by-14-inch format, with key details enlarged for closer inspection, and is accompanied by illuminating essays from film critic A. D. Jameson, who speaks to the unique geographies of each film.
