In this book, fashion specialist Colin McDowell goes beyond standard fashion histories and narrative surveys to answer all these .

In this book, fashion specialist Colin McDowell goes beyond standard fashion histories and narrative surveys to answer all these questions and more. Fashion is about the body. The first book to reflect this truism, The Anatomy of Fashion is the ultimate guide to how we dress, why we look the way we do and how this has changed over time.

Following the success of Phaidon's The Art Book and The Photography Book, this volume takes a fresh look at the fashion world and the people who created and inspired it. The House Book.

Following the same formula as Phaidon's miniature "Art Book" and "Photography Book", the mini version of "The Movie Book" brings together 500 people from around the world who have made a landmark contribution to the medium of film. From the earliest pioneers to the stars of today, the entries cover the entire industry, including actors and directors, costume designers and make-up artists, special-effects wizards and animators, producers and major movie moguls. Arranged alphabetically, they create engaging and thought-provoking juxtapositions: Marcello Mastroianni sits next to Louis B. Mayer while Sidney Poitier rubs shoulders with Roman Polanski. Each entry is illustrated by a film still, photograph or cinematic sequence that shows a key aspect of that person's work. An accompanying text reveals the significance of each name within the history of film and includes essential biographical information. In addition, there is a comprehensive cross-referencing system and glossary to guide the reader through the complexities of the motion-picture industry, together with an international guide to film festivals and museums. A feature exclusive to the mini version is a supplementary index of film titles, actors, actresses and directors, enabling the user to track down all the additional references to and illustrations of their favourite films and personalities.

I actually like the why this book was set up;alphabetically listing 500 names from cinema history,and providing short and pithy biographies and nice photos for each person.But there are a few problems.One egregious one is that the picture of Gong Li,actaully isn`t Gong Li(It is a picture of Gong Li`s servant girl in the movie Raise the Red Lantern.Also are are some names that should have been in here,and some that probably shouldn`t be in here.Three "major" names that were ommitted from this book were "Fredrich March"( two time Academy award winner for best actor ),"William Holden "(star of Sunset Boulevard,The Bridge on the River Kwi,the Wild Bunch,Network,Stalag 17,and many others.Also I believe he is the only actor to win an acedemy award and an emmy.And lastly "John Barrymore",who started of an a great stage actor and became,as any good movie historian will tell you,one of the greats of early cinema.
Gorgeous monster of a coffee table book! Was in unopened excellent condition. I give praise to the company I purchased this from. It's truly a movie buffs encyclopedia!
I throw an Academy Award party every year and each year I try to become inventive on the Grand Prize gift basket. This book did not disappoint! It is rather large but I used it as a base and wrapped the basket up with it underneath. Great info inside and the winner has it on her coffee table for guest to look through.
If you love old movies, you will love this book, every page holds a depiction of actors and actresses in their greatest roles. Also directors are noted, Artists, Designers. A must for anyone who is studying fashion design and make-up
I was expecting a listing by movies not by stars.
Who remembers all the stars first.
List the movies and then the stars that were in the movies plus the minor stars also.
Disappointed in the book.
not what i expected
While this would make an excellent book for a beginning film buff, or even a nice conversation starter among a group of movie fans, this book offers nothing of substance for veteran movie buffs. Each each entry in this book consists of a half page photo of the subject or, in the case of behind the camera personnel, their signature movie and a very brief bio that doesn't really shed any light on the subject.

So get this for the budding film fan in your family or if you have a group of friends who enjoy movies leave it out on the coffee table and let the conversation begin.
A note to prospective buyers: THE MOVIE BOOK will give you a hernia if you're not careful. But its rather bookshelf-busting size is a complement, with in-depth insights into the actors, directors, special effects guys, cinematographers and musicians who make movie magic. The only problem with this book is that several of the bios are out of date. Of course, you have to accept that with any movie chronicle book, but its glaringly obvious with certain actors. The Christopher Lee bio for example, states that the famed actor has never been able to escape the confines of horror movies, when of course, since the book was published, he has gone on to tackle serious drama (Jinnah), science fiction (Star Wars) Lord of the Rings and Willy Wonka. Now if that's not range, I don't know what is. My point is, when the actors and directors are being chronicled, rather than being presumptuous, instead be more ambiguous so the writing doesn't outdate so quickly. And there are some glaring omissions here (Where is Stan Winston?) One may suggest that for a book that not only displays its significance but also shoves it down your throat, that it might be time for a comprehensive update before this one gets put in the 'old time' bookshelf.
