Reseña del editor The World of The Dark Crystal invites fans to delve into the creation and lore of the Jim Henson classic through the evocative illustrations of Brian Froud, concept designer on the original film.Jim Henson’s 1982 classic The Dark Crystal introduced the world to the remarkable imagination of concept artist Brian Froud, who designed the film’s iconic characters, creatures, and locations. Following the success of the film, Henson and Froud collaborated on The World of The Dark Crystal, a unique book that showcases the gorgeous conceptual artwork created for the film and delves into the lore that underpins Thra, the magical world at the heart of Henson’s story. Now, for the first time in over 15 years, The World of The Dark Crystal is back in print, featuring an abundance of striking art and including all the bonus material from the 2003 Collector's Edition—a fascinating essay by Froud on the creative process of making the film and a facsimile of a booklet Froud and Henson presented to the film’s early backers. Beautiful, imaginative, and powerful, The World of The Dark Crystal celebrates a landmark fantasy film that continues to win new fans more than three decades after its release.
