Publishers Description

Before you can film a fantasy movie, you must create an authentic world. What kind of weather is found within, what would the buildings be made of, what creatures populate its land, and what is the history behind its people? For every stunning frame of film, there have been countless hours of work to create such majesty. And what a task to bring to the screen one of the world's most beloved children's series, C. S. Lewis's The Chronicles of Narnia.

This book, written and designed by the artists of the Academy-Award winning special effects house Weta Workshop, chronicles the stunning concept drawings, designs, and props that helped director Andrew Adamson shape the world of Narnia in cinematic glory. With detailed photography, hundreds of never before seen drawings and sculptures, and commentary from the artists and craftspeople of the workshop, discover the intricate work and exhaustive research and detail that went into each piece, prop, and weapon made by Weta Workshop for The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe and The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian. This beautifully illustrated collector's edition follows the journey of ideas, from initial sketches through finished designs to final, exquisitely hand-crafted props, armor, and miniatures. Witness firsthand the intricate models for the creatures in the White Witch's army, the difference between a Boggle and a Harpy, how Mr. Tumnus evolved, how dwarves and Centaurs were armored, and much, much more.

The Crafting of Narnia provides a unique window into the movie-making experience.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Great book--loved it! Wonderful!  Apr 13, 2008
I got this book, expecting it to be a tad on the dull side.
I was most wrong.

This book is jam-packed full of information from the new Narnia movie-- "Narnia, The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe." This book has detailed pictures of behind the scenes, the costumes and how the whole movie was put together.

I'd recommend this book to anyone who is curious about the awesome Narnia movie! Great for adults and children.
