Making Moon: A British Sci-Fi Cult Classic Art Book Review

Titan Books has just released a brand new art book that fans of cinema may enjoy, and it celebrates the 10th anniversary of Moon, a film by Duncan Jones starring Sam Rockwell.

The book is called Making Moon: A British Sci-Fi Cult Classic, and it features oversized, thick, glossy pages full of stills from the film’s production, script notes, concept art, and plenty of anecdotes revolving around the film’s creation, shoot, and reception.

It’s structured in a way that gives fans an inside look at the film’s creation from start to finish, and it even covers its release into the wild, and its reception by critics and fans alike. What I appreciated most were the sections on the miniatures used to shoot certain scenes, as well as the VFX section, as both provided awesome insights into how cinematography tricks were used to tell this sci-fi heavy story.

You can check out my full review and get a preview of the book’s content below in video form!
