Terry Ackland-Snow worked as a draughtsman, art director and production designer on over 80 movies, including the likes of On Her Majesty’s Secret Service, 2001: A Space Odyssey, Aliens and The Dark Crystal.
With the assistance of Wendy Laybourn, he’s now documented that career in a copiously illustrated memoir. The Art of Film features over 200 images: set sketches, design plans and on-set photos. There are diagrams setting out, for example, the assault on Blofeld’s Alpine lair in OHMSS, and how the puppeteers on The Dark Crystal set were hidden
