About this deal

That said, Rachael was created as a fully formed adult like the rest of her kin, so that still doesn’t explain how Ana started out as an infant and became a woman. This began with the redesign of the iconic flying police car – K’s Spinner, which is particularly angular and robust. Their journey is chronicled with captivating detail in this official visual guide to Blade Runner 2049, presented in an oversized and luxe full-colour format.

I have subsequently seen the movie three times, and this book reinforces my opinion it is one of the greatest world-building SF movies ever made. I know, we normally do video game stuff here, but we did Ghost in the Shell(and Blade Runner’s animated prequel), so indulge me. The author documented the film's production for two years, gaining unprecedented access to the creative process of bringing this epic to life.I asked Querzola about the roladex and the E63 lamp: “ We conceived, designed and built a lot of furniture and objects, but we chose and bought a lot of designer items too and this mix was the right move, no futuristic nods. It wasn't extreme, and I still highly recommend the book, but having just enjoyed "Interlinked," with its higher build quality, I wished I could have spent an extra 5 dollars on this volume and gotten a similar binding and cover.

Among their thousands of design offerings, we can always spot a selection of fabulous furniture classics featured in some of our favourite movies. Lapointe does a good job of highlighting different parts of the movie's production as needed and also in reiterating key design philosophies behind the movie - the consistent reminders of the noir influence, the authenticity, the "soviet brutalism" style, etc - that went into the making of the film. org beautifully puts it: “deeply atmospheric sets that not only conveyed the solitude and loneliness at the heart of the film, but offered the director, cinematographer and actors distinctive worlds within a world”. This is no more evident than in the explanation of a 30 page booklet Denis Villeneuve created to serve as a backstory for replicants.In reality, he actually used nothing more sophisticated than erasers, a blending stump (a compressed roll of paper shaped into a point, used to precisely blend the charcoals), and his fingers. The result leans more towards film noir than science fiction and now, having had some time to digest it, I think this was a clever move. Ridley Scott is considered the master of set design, and he's always been old school about his approach to building sets, using models and real props to bring his visions to life.
