This is essentially a movie style picture book. This book is huge. The width is just shorter than my keyboard.
The story premise is on space exploration. It is told in a photo essay way with captions and quotes. The write up is pretty interesting.
Here's an excerpt:
Toxicity analysis showed that a large portion of the creature's body was incompatible with my digestive system, so I carefully avoided those areas. Even so, after eating I became violently ill, suffering nausea and hallucinations for two days. I discovered the only edible tissue is the facia between the skin and muscle. Even that tastes like a shoe marinated in battery acid.
The pictures included in the book are amazing, and big. They look as if taken from a real camera, with details like depth of field. The creatures created are very realistic. I've absolutely no idea how they create those creatures. A quick look at the credits on the back suggest a combination of 3D and sculptures.
This is an interesting book that can be read as fast as a comic book.
