Yes, wishful thinking was making me jump to conclusions there.

Yeah, that IS a bit much, but after putting $44. away for the next two months, It'll be doable.

Re: Babylon 5 20th Anniversary: Visual Celebration Book!

June 24th is the book release date. The link states that pre-orders will be announced closer to the release date. Also the $88 dollar price tag is only for the first seven days after it's release. The final price after this time will be $134 dollars. The books available at Phoenix Con will also be $88 bucks.

I probably won't either. I'd wager 100% of the pictures will be online somewhere exactly 60 seconds after the book's release.

Re: Babylon 5 20th Anniversary: Visual Celebration Book!

I had a no idea. Is this a behind the scenes book or an encyclopedia?

Re: Babylon 5 20th Anniversary: Visual Celebration Book!

The article I originally posted describes the book. It's a behind the scenes visual guide/companion.

AS CLOSE AS YOU’LL GET TO BLU-RAYS

The 12 inch by 12 inch size of this book is the highest resolution in which you will ever see Babylon 5. The show cannot be remastered in high definition or released on Blu-Ray because of the CGI. Remember that Babylon 5 was one of the first shows to use CGI and it was created for the standard-definition televisions of the 1990s. At an average of 6,000 frames per episode, re-creating it from scratch is prohibitively expensive.
I know we already knew this, but just reading it again......

A message from Captain Jaclyn regarding pre-orders of the B520 book to be picked up at Phoenix Comicon:

The Phoenix Comicon pre-orders are sold out but you can sign up for the mailing list ( http://www.cafepress.com/b5books ) to be alerted when the book is officially released worldwide in June 2013.

Re: Babylon 5 20th Anniversary: Visual Celebration Book!

I saw it and it's truly gorgeous. Big and beautiful. I didn't pick mine up because I really didn't want to lug a 5-pound book around the con with me. But I did look through the sample copy they had and loved it. Lots of fans were doing something really smart - getting their autographs on the slipcase. That's gonna look *great* on their coffee tables!

I don't know if they'll be available for purchase or not, but at the B5 Bingo/Stump the Editor panel, there were a few framed prints of some of the pages as prizes. My fave was of John and Delenn embracing for the last time. I didn't win at Bingo and wasn't allowed to play Stump the Editor but that would have been my chosen prize.
