“This is a truly behind- and in-the-scenes look at a film that has maintained a pull on audiences for decades. With sketches, interviews with cast and crew and thorough research, Block and Erdmann explore the genesis of the film, its script, its puppets, the ins and outs of its filming, and the ups and downs of its reception. It’s at once dazzling and engrossing. The collection is studded with extras that add texture and delight: inserts, posters, scripts, memos, original art and stunning photography. The result is a tribute to Henson, to ‘Labyrinth’ and to the people who made it possible, a rich shrine to the film’s enduring legacy.”
—Katie Weed, freelance writer and reviewer, big fan of Bellingham’s Village Books: “It’s an institution in this town! I buy books there, go to readings there, and have even played fiddle there a few times.”
Katie’s review originally appeared in the Nov. 22 edition of Shelf Awareness for Readers.
