Re: Does TOS Still Look Futuristic to You?

For everyone who loved the design of 2001: A Space Odyssey I strongly recommend a book called 2001: Lost Science which is full of original drawings and behind the scenes photos from the collection of Frederick Ordway, who was a special consultant from the Alabama Space and Rocket Center for Stanley Kubrick. I love 2001 and this is probably my favorite book on the film.
Thanks for the reference. I would aslo advise buying the long out of print 2001: Filming the Future by Piers Bizony. That book is filled with wonderful photos of miniatures, sets, etc. Still one of the best visions of sci-fi vehicle design ever filmed.
You're welcome. I do have the Bizony book (both editions), and as good as it is, the other book blows it away.
