Jim Henson's Labyrinth: The Ultimate Visual History

Lovers of fantasy and puppetry, rejoice: Paula M. Block and Terry J. Erdmann (Star Trek: The Original Series 365) have compiled an exhaustive and exquisitely arranged compendium of tales and memorabilia in Jim Henson's Labyrinth: The Ultimate Visual History for the 1986 film's 30th anniversary.

This is a truly behind- and in-the-scenes look at a film that has maintained a pull on audiences for decades. With sketches, interviews with cast and crew and thorough research, Block and Erdmann explore the genesis of the film, its script, its puppets, the ins and outs of its filming, and the ups and downs of its reception. It's at once dazzling and engrossing. The collection is studded with extras that add texture and delight: inserts, posters, scripts, memos, original art and stunning photography. The result is a tribute to Henson, to Labyrinth and to the people who made it possible, a rich shrine to the film's enduring legacy. --Katie Weed, freelance writer and reviewer
