Product Description

• Harryhausen is the critically acclaimed master of stop-motion animation and has a huge following

Publishers Weekly called Ray Harryhausen: An Animated Life “terrific”; Kirkus said it’s “a must”; Library Journal said “Harryhausen is a geek god!”

• Lavishly illustrated and packed with Harryhausen’s own words and images

The huge ape of Mighty Joe Young. The fighting skeletons of Jason and the Argonauts. And, of course, the angry T. Rex of Island of the Gwangi. All these creations and many more, seared into our collective consciousness, are the work of one man—Ray Harryhausen. The father of special effects, Ray Harryhausen is revered among film historians, animators, special-effects designers, and everyone who’s ever seen his inspired stop-motion creations. In 2004, Watson-Guptill published Ray Harryhausen: An Animated Life to critical acclaim and sales of over 20,000 copies. Now WG is pleased to present a companion book: The Art of Ray Harryhausen. Concise essays and lavish illustrations look at each of Harryhausen’s many specialties, including aliens, prehistoric creatures, mythological monsters, and much more. At last, fans of Harryhausen can see the progression of his work over time, in a visual celebration of his art and artistry.
