This deluxe two-volume set, a massive 17 pounds, explores seven-time Academy Award-winner Rick Baker’s 40-plus-year journey as a special makeup effects artist. Features a foreword by John Landis, a preface by Peter Jackson, and an introduction by Baker himself.  Chronicles the career of the legendary special effects and makeup artist, best known for his creature effects and designs. 1,600 four-color images and original sketches, from his early days as a young “monster maker,” creating body parts in his parents’ kitchen, to his more than seventy film and television credits.

As well as his Oscars, he has received one Emmy and three BAFTAs, among numerous other awards.

From the gory zombies of Michael Jackson’s Thriller and the staggeringly lifelike Bigfoot in Harry and the Hendersons to the creative buildsw in Men in Black and the groundbreaking effects in An American Werewolf in London, Rick Baker’s special effects, makeup, and prosthetics count among some of Hollywood’s most enduring legacies.

A beautiful set. Two oversized hardcovers, each with a different dust jacket, are encased in a huge black illustrated slipcase. These are about the size of the five-volume Complete EC sets from Russ Cochran, but these are in full color, on glossy paper, with gorgeous detail and reproduction of every behind the scenes picture.
