Cover of book: Harper Collins Publishers, New York City.
Cathy Whitlock, an interior designer and author of the Cinema Style blog, has written a new book titled Designs On Film in conjunction with the Art Directors Guild. The cover shows Dorothy and Toto on the Yellow Brick Road from The (Young) Devoted Classicist's favorite film The Wizard of Oz with art direction by the MGM team led by Cedric Gibbons and costumes by Adrian. With the production design of some of the most memorable settings in film history, showing the ancient Rome in Cleopatra to the fantastic future Pandora in Avatar, Ms. Whitlock reveals the process of creating movie magic. For a preview of the book, see the website http://www.adg.org/?art=designs_on_film of the Art Directors Guild.
