• 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.


'A splendid volume... fabulous illustrations' -- Jonathan Ross 'A delight, packed with super reproductions of drawings and models relating to a long, frenetic life in movies' The Times 'A gorgeous, sumptuous, coffee table book...enough never-before-seen material to keep any enthusiast happy' SFX Magazine 'One of the best-loved fantasy artists and animators of the last century...a perfect gift for fans' Publishing News --このテキストは、ペーパーバック版に関連付けられています。

 中にはオブライエンが好きだからと試し書きした「猿人ジョーヤング」が闘牛をする「合作」イメージボードのなどネタ的にも面白い絵も存在。「An Animated Life」と同じく、英語が分かんなくてもわくわくする一冊です。

5つ星のうち 5.0 An enlargement of Ray's FILM FANTASY SCRAPBOOK!! 2015/1/27
投稿者 Jonhayashi1 - (Amazon.com)
形式: ハードカバー Amazonで購入
This book reads like a expanded version of Ray's FILM FANTASY SCRAPBOOK! Ray describes in detail the processes involved in making his movies and the influence of such artists as Charles R. Knight whose depiction of dinosaurs was a big influence on both Harryhausensen and Disney when it comes to the Rite Of Spring of FANTASIA. When Ray made EVOLUTION he abanded the project after seeing Disney's dinosaurs! Ray prefered the surreal quality of his stop motion over the realism of today's CGI animation!

Chapter 3 Masks, mayhem and Monsters shows his experimenting with puppets and his mask making which he made with latex rubber and molds Chapter4 The Formative Years shows Ray experimenting with commercials like Kenny Key( his early work can be seen in RAY HARRYHAUSEN THE EARLY YEARS DVD VIDEO )Then he worked with Willis O Brian on MIGHTY JOE YOUNG. The full colour illustrations of Joe Young the gorilla show how expressive Ray was with his drawings!

In Chapter 5 Fairy Tales my Teething Rings Ray talks about his charming Fairy Tale shorts that are featured in RAY HARRYHAUSEN THE EARLY YEARS dvd video! Model sheets by Ray show Red Riding Hood and other characters before they are visuallised in 3 dimentions as stop motion puppets. As an animater myself I can only look at his work and realise the patience and persistance in animating these models one frame at a time! I find it enough work to animate hand drawn animation instead of models! The beautiful kodachome forest for Red Riding Hood to walk through is breathtaking to see! And the glistening gold in KING MIDAS is spectakular!

Chapter 7 ZEUS COMPLEX shows his visualisations of JASON AND THE ARGAUNAUTS and CLASH OF THE TITANS! I just watched JASON AND THE ARGAUNAUTS, THE 7TH VOYAGE OF SINBAD and GOLDEN VOYAGE OF SINBAD on DVD! The drawings of Medusa the Gorgan show how expressive Ray made her and also reveal a weakness in some of his work in that the monsters are much more alive and expresssive then the hero such as Perseus, acted stiffly by Harry Hamlin! Jason fares better with an army of skeletons and the Hydra both animated by Ray! Storyboards of Talos the giant statue towering over the ship, the Argo are powerful and intriguing! There are also storyboard drawings for sequences not used like Hermes taking Jason up to mount Olympus by a horse drawn Chariot and creature sketches for the unrealised FORCE OF THE TROJANS!

Chapters 8 and 9 depict THE 7TH VOYAGE OF SINBAD and THE GOLDEN VOYAGE OF SINBAD with the dragon from 7th VOYAGE with Ray holding it and full size drawing of one eyed cyclops centaur in GOLDEN VOYAGE menacing some men with a boulder!

The last chapter, chapter 11 Its fine stuff but it will rot in time" shows Ray preserving his models in bronse since his models were not made to resist the rigors of time! This book is beautifully illustrated , highly recommended!! R.I.P. Ray Harryhausen!
5つ星のうち 5.0 Not just for R.H. fans , but a important book for special effect's fans & film historians!!! 2014/10/18

Rarely does a man come along that is as influential to a specific field or occupation or art form that has such a impact as Ray Harryhausen!! Many could argue that Willis O'Brien should alone be credited with the advent of stop motion animation, but I believe that Ray Harryhausen's film's have influenced a much wider audience. Mr. Harryhausen gives credit where credit is due & this book not only showcases Ray's work but offer's a generous look at Willis O'Brien's work as well! Ray Harryhausen is a rare example of the student exceeding the master & Ray stay's true to his teacher in realizing O'Brien's unfulfilled project's like "The Valley of Gwangi." Ray Harryhausen has never let his ego get in the way never missing a opportunity to give credit & admiration to Mr. O'Brien. This book is a must have for Harryhausen fans & student's of special effect's in motion pictures. It is filled with beautiful art work & images of unrealized film's that stir the imagination. Before the advent of C.G.I. stop motion animation was a breakthrough development in film making, making it possible to bring a level of realism to creature films not available prior to its creation. This also allowed Hollywood to revive ancient literature & bring it to a new audience of film viewers. Not everyone has a vivid imagination being able to envision the wild & weird creatures of Mythology & Science Fiction tending to making these genre's dull & unappealing to many readers. But through the creative imagination & talent of Ray Harryhausen many people left the movie theaters with a whole new appreciation for those genre's! It is difficult to express in words the full impact this one man had on the film industry and the thousands of movie goers that were privileged to witness this quantum leap in film making! Our children will never fully appreciate the impact of people seeing a 30 foot tall orange Cyclops rampage a crossed the big screen framed in a stunning blue sky background! If not for pioneers like Willis O'Brien & Ray Harryhausen who took stop motion animation to the next level we would have never had inspired hungry young special effects artist to push the envelope to develop C.G.I. and have special effects so realistic you can't tell where reality ends & the illusion begins! Whether its my age that makes the old Ray Harryhausen / Charles Schneer films so endearing to me or if its the quality of the story telling I will never truly know. But I can tell you this, no matter how good the C.G.I. special effects are today almost every child still finds these old films great fun & every parent can allow their child to watch these old classics without having to worry about excessive violence, sexuality, or foul language!!! I am very glad I decided to get this book. Not only because its filled with exciting beautiful artwork & story boards I am familiar with, but it is filled with great information & images of lost & unrealized projects that in my opinion are worth the price I paid for this book alone! If you are a fan of Ray Harryhausen I highly recommend this book!

5つ星のうち 5.0 An amazing and incredible testament to a major fantastic filmmaker. 2006/3/23
投稿者 Bob Eggleton - (Amazon.com)
形式: ハードカバー Amazonで購入
To start with, this book reproduces so many unseen and barely- glimpsed-before drawings and concepts, that one can spend hours looking at each one again and again. So it is rare are we are afforded this backstage look at the making of those wonderful stop motion films. Harryhausen's legacy is testamony to a time when films were made of this kind, and they not only took a long time of thinking and planning to make, but the result on screen was epic and, worth the wait. Nowadays fantasy film effects are churned out so ad nauseum thanks to CGI, that they simply lose their wonder-it's like we're used to it. I'm a big fan of *real* model work and real matte painting. You could touch it and it had presence, and those little nuances people fault it for now, are what give it it's character and style. Because of that, Harryhausen's legacy stands on it's own and will be remembered well past his lifetime. Remember, even up to his last film CLASH OF THE TITANS(1981) he worked largely out of a very small studio-one time it was his garage(!!)with one or two assistants and that was only on later,larger budgeted pictures. What does that say compared nowadays to $150M dollar + effects films!!!???

And though retired, we have Harryhausen now, still working away with his drawings ans sculptures into his 80's. A man who loves what he does.I can't recommend this book enough, save to say that the reproduction is excellent on all the art shown-pencil sketches, storyboards, charcoal drawings. It's so nice to see drawings as opposed to overrendered computer artwork of nowadays.

Of note is the "Inspirations" part of the book where we see some of the artwork by others that inspired Ray to follow his muse. It says much about the man.

5つ星のうち 5.0 Essential reading for animators 2011/6/28
投稿者 Stop Motion Maniac - (Amazon.com)
形式: ハードカバー Amazonで購入
This is must reading for animators. This is a nice hardback book with dust cover with 230 pages. There is plenty of text in Ray's own words and enough images to satisfy the fans.

The book is divided into the following chapters:

Setting the Scene
Influences and Inspirations
Masks, Monsters and Mayhem
The Formative Years
Fairy Tales-My Teething Rings
Zeus Complex
Aliens-The Epitome of Apotamy
Other Adventures
'It's Fine Stuff, But it Will Rot'

If you are a stop motion animator I would suggest buying this with An Animated Life, Master of Majicks Vol. 2, Master of Majicks Vol. 3 (volume 1 hasn't been released yet) and A Century of Stop Motion Animation.

Highly recommended.
