Book

Faked Love Letters, Forged Telegrams & Prison Escape Maps | Annie Atkins

Regular price £24.95

Subtitled 'Designing Graphic Props For Filmmaking', this beautiful book explores the work of Annie Atkins, whose paper props and background signage have graced (and improved) many a wonderful film.

The contents explore Atkins' research methods, the importance of maintaining continuity, the use of language and a close look at the tools of her trade. There is also a chapter on her work on The Grand Budapest Hotel and her role in bringing it to graphic life, which is well worth a look.

So, expect fake blood, tea staining, identical and fastidiously rendered paper facsimiles, forged banknotes, exquisite calligraphy and one hell of a lot of small details. This is, quite simply, breathtaking stuff.
