Show synopsis Discover the genius behind the world of Narnia and how it was brought to the big screen in this lavish art book produced by the films' own special effects studio. Written and designed by the artists of Academy Award winning special effects house the Weta Workshop, this indispensable book chronicles their stunning conception and design of the world of Narnia for Andrew Adamson's The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe and the new The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian (May 2008). With detailed photography, hundreds of never-before-seen drawings and sculptures and commentary from the artists and craftspeople of the workshop, this beautiful full-colour collector's edition follows the journey of ideas, from initial sketches through beautifully finished designs to final, exquisitely hand-crafted props, costume pieces, and settings. Armed with a wealth of fascinating facts and unique imagery, Creating Narnia promises to be a striking, essential companion to The Chronicles of Narnia.
