Product Description

As the director of such blockbusters as Batman and Edward Scissorhands, and the producer of the modern classic The Nightmare Before Christmas, Tim Burton has earned a deserved reputation as one of today''s most creative and innovative filmmakers. The New York Times calls his work "dazzling," and Entertainment Weekly hails him as America''s "pop visionary." Now in this deluxe companion volume to his cinematic interpretation of the classic tale of Ichabod Crane and the Headless Horseman, we go beyond the sets and into the mind''s eye of the director, to see how Burton''s incomparable vision comes to life on film. Featuring production art, storyboards, costume designs, and set sketches, we see Burton''s concepts transformed into screen magic. More than just a look into the making of a motion picture, this is a collection of film artwork that is, in its own right, a major artistic statement. Drawings and paintings from the production show the depth of artistry that goes into the creation of Burton''s world. His stunning vision of neo-Gothic nineteenth-century America comes alive: the foggy valleys of Sleepy Hollow, the cobbled streets of old New York City, and the menace and terror of the Headless Horseman. This volume proves that his vision not only resonates on the screen but on the canvas and sketchbook as well. The masterly work that accompanies the dramatic script demonstrates Burton''s awesome creative prowess -- as both an artist and a major force in

Amazon.com Review

Tim Burton''s hallmark as a filmmaker is his bizarre, inventive, and oddly beautiful visual style. It is fitting, then, that the companion book to his movie Sleepy Hollow is a big and beautiful hardback, full of images that range from quietly eerie to eye-popping. The book contains Burton''s sketches, paintings from production designer Rick Heinrichs and costume designer Colleen Atwood, and dozens of stills from the film itself. All of this is juxtaposed with Andrew Kevin Walker''s screenplay of Washington Irving''s story. The result is a unique opportunity to see how a film comes together. Bare words on a page result in Burton''s quirky roughs, which are fleshed out into more detailed paintings by Burton and the production team. Finally it all comes together in photographs of the end product. In addition to an engrossing screenplay (Careful! It''s far from a direct cribbing of the original story, so see the movie before reading too far if you don''t want the plot spoiled), the reader gets to see the evolution of Ichabod''s binocular glasses and creepy yet strangely charming autopsy instruments. The book as a whole illustrates one of the most interesting aspects of Burton''s vision--frightening images are clearly meant to be seen as beautiful at the same time. The Art of Sleepy Hollow is entertaining on several levels: as a good story, as a step-by-step tour of the way a film''s design comes together, and as a fascinating picture book for grownups. --Ali Davis

Yes, it''s not The Making Of... publication in the strict sense. Yes, the Paramount''s movie site is awesome.
So what?
In the Web age when you can consume just anything electronically holding that book is such a joy! To leaf through these beautiful pages nicely bound in a hardcover instead of staring in a blinking computer screen!
The book represents the strongest points of Tim Burton''s latest movie - the words and the design. He always excelled in these.
It''s evident Mr.Burton gone a bit mainstream with all these foolish action sequences (see my review of the film). But you will not notice it in the book. That stupid galloping translates in just a few words!
Looking at the film frame by frame you have an impression that the book came alive! Not in a sense that Tim Burton recreated Washington Irving''s classic precisely as it was written- he certainly did not - but the process of watching is very tactile, like turning the pages of the best picture book ever.
So it is just perfect that The Art Of Sleepy Hollow contains only the slight traces of Tim Burton''s big production\common taste compromise and is just a story of Sleepy Hollow seen by the Burton''s crew with a very beautiful pictures on a very good paper.
Do you really need all these behind-the-scenes technicalities, to know exactly where the rabbit was before it was pulled out of a hat?
Buy the book and enjoy the magic!

This book is a companion volume to Burton''s movie on LEGEND OF SLEEPY HOLLOW. He took a number of deviations from the original story but the biggest was a visual one: to replace gawky, almost-ugly Ichabod Crane with gorgeous Johnny Depp. You cannot picture Johnny Depp in the original Washington Irvin tale. You can picture Christina Ricci, the heroine, falling for Johnny Depp, as she does, but not the original Ichabod. However, Burton is a terrific artist and what art is in this book is smashing and Depp and Ricci are gorgeous people to put in an art book. I could frankly use a lot more art and a lot less screenplay (also in the book) since I''m not sure that I like all the liberties Burton took with the original tale in his screenplay. The film, however, looked gorgeous and Burton and his team picked up an Oscar for the visuals, as usual, two months ago.

I can definiitely understand why some reviewers were disappointed with this book, because the title does seem to imply that the volume contains behind-the-scenes material. I myself was a bit disappointed with the book initially. HOWEVER, the book is very beautifully done, bringing together Walker''s original screenplay with Burton''s pre-production sketches as well as other production sketches. The book gives the reader a visual depiction of how the screenplay evolved into the film, which I found I quite enjoy.
If you are a fan of Tim Burton, yes, this book is a must-have. And if you approach it with the full knowledge that it is not your typical behind-the-scenes guide to the film, and instead an homage to the artistic endeavor that went into creating the film, I think you will enjoy this book.

"The Art Of Sleepy Hollow" does a great job a carturing the sweeping,eerie mood of Tim Burton''s films,with great stills and re-creations of the beautiful art design.There are also an abundance of original scatches,illustration the development of many of the characters and scenarios in the completed film.My favorite photo personally is the one at the back showing a menacing Tim Burton holding the mock-ups of two severed heads,perfectly capturing the fun-house chills of the film.As an added bonus you get the original screenplay,with many scenes that were not in the film,that help elucidate and clarify alot of the scenes that didn''t make a lot of sense in the film.If you loved the movie,this book is a must-have.
