Hollywood Sketchbook is the first volume published on costume design illustration for the movies. This groundbreaking book celebrates one hundred years of the costume designers' and costume illustrators' contributions to the art of cinematic storytelling. Costume designer Deborah Nadoolman Landis offers us a unique perspective on the art and importance of the costume drawing. During her years of practice and research, Professor Landis has discovered a wealth of never-before-seen original sketches, published here for the first time, along with a comprehensive array of first-person anecdotes from collectors, archivists, illustrators, and designers. Whether the film, costume designer, or star was significant or successful did not factor into the criteria for choosing the sketches in this book. Every drawing had a chance to be included on its own merit as a work of art. Featuring a comprehensive introduction that contextualizes the rigors of costume design and a filmography that details the career highlights of each artist, Hollywood Sketchbook is the perfect gift for any lover of fine art, costume design, and the movies.
