Excerpt from inside cover:
Michael Benson, art author, artist, and award-winning filmmaker, has conducted extensive research in Kubrick’s and Clarke’s archives. He has had the cooperation of Kubrick’s widow, Christiane, and interviewed most of the key people still alive who worked on the film. Drawing also from other unpublished interviews, Space Odyssey provides a 360-degree view of the film from its genesis to its legacy, including many previously untold stories. And it features dozens of photos from the making of the film, most never published until now. Space Odyssey is the definitive account of the making of a masterpiece.
