Stanley Kubrick’s Napoleon: The Greatest Movie Never MadeEdited by Alison Castle
Oh Taschen why do you like to empty my pockets? I already have Taschen/Alison Castle’s previous Stanley Kubrick Archives, which is epic in and of itself, chronicling his films through stills, behind-the-scenes photographs, documents, quotes, reviews, and an overall encyclopedia of all things Kubrick (if you haven’t seen this or picked it up, DO check it out). Now they, along with French design studio M/M (Paris) team up to create what they call, “the greatest book ever made about the greatest movie never made”.
To equal Kubrick’s grand vision of Napoleon (whom he envisioned either Jack Nicholson or Al Pacino to star in), the book itself is a massive 11.6” x 14.7” hardcover book representing a Napoleon biography, and is cutout inside to make room for 10 smaller books, all of which cover the abandoned film in great detail.
To really get an idea of the book’s brilliant design, watch Taschen’s feature HERE, as the photo doesn’t really do it justice.
As amazing as this all is, and I’m sure any and all Kubrick heads would love to put this up on their bookshelves and/or coffee tables, it’s only limited to 1,000 numbered copies and is going for a hefty $700.00. Not that this isn’t worth every penny but designers especially, gotta eat. Just sayin.

Tender Is The Night
by F. Scott Fitzgerald

via hannahkarina

I think this is a great metaphor for reading. The problem with most people and reading is at first you’re a little reluctant, you dip your foot in “oh the pool’s too cold, I’ll wait”, but you just have to say “fuck it” and dive in and enjoy the waves and let yourself get lost in the water. And then you’ll come out feeling refreshed, with a greater appreciation for life.
This has been your moment of Zen.
