Written and compiled for 2017’s 40th Anniversary of Close Encounters of the Third Kind, here’s an exclusive and limited-edition book that provides a rare look into the production from the perspective of the Production Designer, Joe Alves.
Joe Alves’ Close Encounters of the Third Kind Production Design Scrapbook is a journey into the design of Director Steven Spielberg’s third feature film. Packed with photos from Joe Alves’ personal archive, you’ll see how the film was designed, the scouting of Devil’s Tower, and the creation of the incredible sets (including the mammoth “Arena Set” that was recorded as the largest enclosed set ever built for its time).
You’ll meet the talented craftsmen and artisans who made Joe Alves’ ambitious designs a reality. You’ll also get insight into the trials and triumphs of the production through personal anecdotes from Joe Alves himself, never before revealed until now.
This is a full-color 92-page volume printed on high-quality glossy stock, perfect bound and a perfect addition to your library.
BONUS: Each copy includes a hand-signed limited edition bookplate, autographed by Joe Alves and author Dennis L. Prince.
