If there's one author whose work fills more of my shelves than Frank Miller, it's Mark Cotta Vaz. He's been writing for Cinefex since I've been reading it, and is responsible for such must-haves as Industrial Light & Magic: Into the Digital Realm, The Art of The Incredibles, and The Invisible Art: The Legends of Movie Matte Painting.
He takes the time to understand the unique aspects of a film's production, and The Spirit: The Movie Visual Companion is no exception. I feel privileged to have our work represented so faithfully and thoughtfully. If you want a window into both my day job and the creative mind of Frank Miller, along with some actual information on the filmmaking process and tons of gorgeous pictures, this is the book for you—although you may want to unwrap it Christmas morning after seeing the movie!
