I got this book with a bunch of others when i went to the library in search of as many books about Alien as i could find. I thought it would be a good idea to collect as many books as possible to broaden my knowledge of the film, specifically its production design. I only read the introductuctory chapter of this book, which was insightful into how the film came about, but it did start to ramble on with a lot of figures and numbers which were irrelevant to this essay. That's where i stopped. I particularly liked the way the introductory chapter was worded though, i drew me in with its questions and i just had to know the answers.
