Sundance Film Festival A to Zby Todd Oldham
Synopses & Reviews
"Sundance Film Festival A to Z" celebrates the history and legacy of the films, actors, and directors of the Sundance Film Festival through the years. Releasing in time for the upcoming 2013 Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah, this book features the ABCs of the festival, including twenty-six new illustrations from twenty-six different artists—one for each letter of the alphabet. Aspects of the festival featured include: E is for "Exit Through the Gift Shop," L is for Joseph Gordon-Levitt, and Y is for "Y Tu Mama Tambien."
"While this striking ode to independent cinema uses an abecedarian board book format, the films it covers are for an older crowd. More than 30 years of Sundance Film Festival movies are featured within as 27 artists contributing wildly diverse interpretations of several of them. A few names will be familiar to children's book aficionados: Patrick Hruby offers geometric portraits of Lily Tomlin and Stanley Tucci on the T spread, and Christopher Silas Neal closes things out with Zebrahead and Zidane. As iconoclastic a collection as the movies, directors, and actors it celebrates. (June)" Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
