Stanley Kubrick's Napoleon: The Greatest Movie Never Made

Award: Wood Pencil

Wood Pencil / Book Design / Entire Books / 2012

Taschen's 2009 collector's edition, designed by M/M (Paris) and limited to 1,000 copies, featured a carved-out facsimile of an antique history book containing ten smaller books, each covering a category of material from the archive of Stanley Kubrick’s unmade ‘Napoleon’ movie (including a facsimile of the screenplay). To turn this art object into an affordable, smaller, single-volume book, the designers retained the original outer book’s form and reproduced all of the ten interior books as if they had been ‘photocopied’ onto the pages, with two books often running simultaneously on the same page.
