The Art of Film by Terry Ackland-Snow
The Art of Film is a new book from FSWL supporter Terry Ackland-Snow and is published by The History Press who previously published the critically acclaimed Some Kind of Hero: The Remarkable Story of the James Bond Films by FSWL contributor Ajay Chowdhury & Matthew Field, and The 007 Diaries by Sir Roger Moore.

Legendary Art Director Terry Ackland-Snow lifts the lid on his extraordinary career in cinema.

Terry Ackland-Snow is a legendary figure in the film and television industry. Having worked on over 80 feature films, including two James Bond pictures (On Her Majesty's Secret Service and The Living Daylights, two of the best films in the series in our opinion), Aliens, Batman, 2001: A Space Odyssey, Labyrinth and The Rocky Horror Picture Show, he reveals in The Art of Film the stories behind the making of these iconic productions.

Featuring behind-the-scenes photographs and Terry's own production sketches, many of which are published here for the first time, The Art of Film is an essential read for all lovers of classic cinema.
