Terry Ackland-Snow is a legend in the film industry, having created some of cinema’s most memorable worlds – and he’s penned a book.

If you ever fancied building your own ’89 Batmobile (and let’s face it, who hasn’t seriously considered quitting their day job and building Batmobiles all day, every day), then you’re in luck as a new book might contain all of the blueprints you need. Terry Ackland-Snow, the legendary art director who worked on two James Bond films, Aliens, Batman, 2001: A Space Odyssey, Labyrinth and The Rocky Horror Picture Show is releasing a lovely new book containing contains unpublished images, production sketches, and a promised ‘wealth of amusing and revealing anecdotes.’

The Art of Film: Working On James Bond, Aliens, Batman and More by Terry Ackland-Snow is set to launch this month, and even if you don’t own your own Batcave in which you could use the book to construct a Batmobile of your very own, we’re pretty sure the book would look great in any Nerdcave, or even on your coffee table.

In 2001, Ackland-Snow established the Film Design International Art Direction Training Course at Pinewood Film Studios and has overseen teaching there, so you can imagine he might have a tale or two to tell from those days as well. The book is set to launch on 24th March – you can find more on it here.
