World of Models
This huge book is a must for any fans of TV and movie special effects.
In the days before CGI ruled the world, a small but dedicated group of people had to physically create all of the models and special effects for films and television.
Martin Bower was one of those people…If you’ve ever watched Alien, Flash Gordon, or Outland, or seen TV shows such as Doctor Who, Blake’s 7, or Space: 1999, (amongst many others) then you’ll be very familiar with Martin’s work, as he was part of the teams that made these possible.
This is an in-depth look at his career, with lots of behind the scenes information about how many of the models (and effects) were created. It also contains many images that have never been published before, as well as several step-by-step guides.
