AWESOME artwork on those early posters! The alternate logos are real treat! "Raiders of the Lost Arc".
Thanks for the link, Jeremiah!!! (Though, there is a thread for this book somewhere...)

Yes! There are also several storyboards of the truck chase where he uses it
...and there is a production sketch or two of the arm.

I'm dying for this one as well. I'm curious as to how comprehensive its coverage of the fourth movie can be if the book was written while the movie was still being made (though at the same time, I know it must have provided an opportunity to get production details as fresh as possible), and I wish it also covered The Young Indiana Jones Chronicles (I'm assuming it doesn't based upon all the descriptions I've seen saying simply that it covers the four movies, while never mentioning the show), but I'm still Jonesing for this book in a big way.

That is sad, because the series was such a long, huge and rewarding production for all involved (for example, it shot on location in 35 countries, versus KOTCS, which shot in... the United States only). I wonder then, why it wasn't included?

But I have no doubt the series will still be mentioned quite a bit, since KOTCS's origins are so closely tied to it.

If this book is anything like 2007's "The Making of SW", it will be superb. From early appearances, it looks like it will be, so this is something I'm also really looking forward to getting.

It's about time a book devoted to the making of the IJ films came out - this was definitely a long time coming.

Do you think this will include discussion of the multiple Indy IV draft scripts? The SW book went through the elements of each early draft, it would be nice to see how Kingdom evolved...

Some of those early logos are a hoot.They have a very 'sci-fi' feel to them.

The best logo in my opinion is the first on the top... a very serial feel

I'm just glad to see stuff I haven't seen before. I have seen the screen tests but those logos and drawings and storyboard stuff is completely new to me.

Looking incredibly forward to buy this book!

Slightly off topic...
Apparently, I missed something big... I own every Star Wars 'art of' or 'making of' book so I figured I didn't have to buy the 2007 'Making of Star Wars' book...
Was I wrong? Is there stuff in the 2007 book that wasn't in the older ones?

I got the "Making of SW" that came out last year, and haven't regretted it - it does have info. and some pictures that have never been seen before, including a lot of detail about what G. Lucas went through to make the film. However, if you're hesitant about buying this (since it's not cheap), I would recommend checking it out at the bookstore beforehand.

Astonishingly, I don't have it (the Star Wars book) yet myself, but I've seen it and it's magnificent. For a fan, it must surely be one of the most essential books in one's Star Wars library.

Yeah, the Star Wars book is not only the best Star Wars making of book, but probably the best making of book of any movie EVER, its truely amazing, step by step, day by day account of the making of the movie, reconstructed from diaries, interviews, call sheets etc. Really really cool

So, yeah, the indy one should be great

My pleasure!

(Really, this has to be seen in person to be appreciated. If you're thinking about it but aren't sure, I recommend you try to find a copy in person in a bookstore or library.)
