Jaws: Memories From Martha's Vineyard is Now Available for Pre-Order
Attention Jaws fans, for this is your lucky weekend--Jaws: Memories From Martha's Vineyard is now available for pre-order.
Jaws: Memories From Martha's Vineyard is a 296 page book by Matt Taylor, with over one-thousand never-before-seen photographs compiled by Taylor and Jim Beller. This book takes a very ambitious approach to examining the production of Jaws, from the perspectives of both the Hollywood professionals who initiated and oversaw the production and the local cast and crew members from New England who had their own unique behind-the-scenes experiences in helping to bring this classic film to life. With such an ambitious range of sources at its disposal, Memories From Martha's Vineyard will do for Jaws what J.W. Rinzler's recent retrospective books have been doing for the original Star Wars trilogy.
You can pre-order your copy here at the book's official site, which also features some preview pages taken directly from the book. Jaws: Memories From Martha's Vineyard is available in two versions: the softcover edition, and the limited hardcover special edition that includes a DVD that features authentic behind-the-scenes footage from the original Jaws set and a 1″x 1″ piece of the hull of the Orca II (a.k.a. the sinking Orca) that was used in the movie that includes a note of authenticity from owners Lynn and Susan Murphy.
