Review by schatzi
This book has a lot of great pictures from the film and not a lot of text to clutter it up. The early concept designs for the various costumes were especially fascinating (I loved Adrian's "Alexander the Great" themed one), as were the posters (I really wish they'd used the "no more masks" poster design, since I like it more than all of the official posters).
