You have to have been a fan of the science fiction TV series Farscape, from England, to appreciate Joe Nazarro's fine Creatures Of Farscape; Inside Jim Henson's Creature Shop. With that prerequisite met, prepare for an outstanding survey which goes beyond the scenes of the TV series, showing how the many monsters of the show were created. Captivating scenes from each of the show's seasons profile monsters and their making in a vivid series of full-page color displays accompanied by written descriptions of each creature's premise.
Just what we need... more critters. Jun 30, 2005
This book wasn't quite what I was hoping it would be but is definitly recommended. Most of the pictures in it are available online at various website, though there were a few good never-before-seen shots. The book is layed out into seasons and covers most of the major creatures created for the series. The commentary for each is brief and mostly focuses on some quirk of the costume. I was hoping for a more in-depth discussion of how the costumes were made with some behind the scenes pics of the creature shop but sadly this is not so. Also, asside from some initial design sketches, there is little in the book reguarding Moya, Pilot, and the DRDs. If you're looking for a well laid out book with some interesting commentary and beautiful pictures of Farscape aliens, get this book. If you want behind the scenes info and refrence shots, get the DVDs.
