The latest in Newmarket’s Pictorial Moviebook imprint, this is a slight but suitably sumptuous accompaniment to the film. Prefaced by four forewords (Spielberg, producer Kathy Kennedy, author Michael Morpurgo, co-screenwriter Richard Curtis), the book is embellished with 140 beautifully reproduced images, concept art, script segments and telling quotes
from key players. A stylish, classy collectible, if not the rigorous ‘making of’ you might want.
