商品の説明

内容説明

"Worlds" is more than just an absorbing and, ultimately, heart-wrenching work of fiction, it is a visual masterpiece. Not since Wayne Barlowe's "Expedition" has an artist conceived an alien biosphere in such baroque detail, while remaining true to nature's fundamental principles of adaptation, selection, and ecological interdependence. These worlds are intricately conceived, their biomes scientifically plausible, while possessing a sufficient sense of the quirky and outrageous to mirror nature's own outlandish inventiveness. "Worlds" is a visual depiction of humankind's first exploration of life-supporting planets, shown in a dynamic verite photographic style and told in a firstperson narrative. Created by Academy Award-nominated visual effects artist Alec Gillis, "Worlds" leads the reader on a journey to undiscovered landscapes, populated by unknown life forms.

5つ星のうち 5.0 Out of this world 2008/12/24
By Parka - (Amazon.com)
形式:ハードカバー
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.

-- End excerpt

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.

(More pictures are available on my blog. Just visit my Amazon profile for the link.)

5つ星のうち 3.0 Barlowe's is better... 2007/11/10
By A. Burton - (Amazon.com)
形式:ハードカバー
I'd suggest grabbing Wayne Barlowe's "Expedition" over this book. Or at least grab that one as well.

My problem with "Worlds" is that, while it does have the backing of some obviously talented film and CG artists, it doesn't really give you much bang for your buck. The author took a different track than Barlowe and chose only to show his creations through the camera lens of one man. This personalizes the experience of exploring alien environments and encountering alien creatures, but it also leaves a little too much to the imagination.

Several creatures are so big that they don't fit into the "photographer's" lens, so all you get is a giant mouth or a giant fin. They're weird looking mouths and fins, surely, but that's all you get. I wanted some accompanying sketches (surely the artists did some before modelling these beasts), and maybe some follow-up text on what the scientists on Earth though these things might be. The best bits of text are in an epilogue that I didn't bother reading for months because this was primarily a picture book.

Even though it's all science-fiction, I wanted more data. More photos. More sketches. I wanted these Worlds to be real, and in the end they don't come off any more important or memorable than any of the unnameable planets from the last few Star Wars movies. And like those films, the book here is beautiful but lacks substance.

5つ星のうち 5.0 What a Book! 2006/7/14
By Mark Evans - (Amazon.com)
形式:ハードカバー
I don't even know where to begin with this...

Imagine that you went to see a multimillion dollar film chronicling man's first exploration of life supporting planets. Imagine that the filmakers of this movie spared no expense and achieved a photo-real, seemless FX that would be spoken of as the visual equal to the best award winning FX movies of the past twenty-five years.

If you take that imaginary film and make a photobook out of it you have an idea of just how fantastic this book is.

My one gripe is that the book gives ABSOLUTLEY NO HINT as to how these wonderful images were made. Note to Design Studio Press - make a book on the MAKING of this Book.
5つ星のうち 4.0 A movie in a book 2010/9/8
By Spaceman - (Amazon.com)
形式:ハードカバー|Amazon.co.jpで購入済み
This is the closest thing you can get to watching a movie in a book. The images are amazing and realistic, but I cant help it thinking it was missing something. Not sure what tho.
5つ星のうち 3.0 Visually brilliant, but only whets the appetite. 2010/8/24
By E. Black - (Amazon.com)
形式:ハードカバー|Amazon.co.jpで購入済み
This book has wonderful imagery, masterfully executed and with a fascinating story. Unfortunately, that's kind of where it stops. The realistic imagery piques a xenobiological interest, but never really deviates from the main character's story enough to satisfy that same interest. Conceptually it's a brilliant idea, but only partially delivers on what it promises.
