I didn't found a thread for this awesome book so I thought maybe some ninjas don't know about it.
For me it is the best anniversary release for this movie, way better than all crappy movie special editions :notworthy::notworthy::notworthy:



Release date: 20th October 2015
Price & Purchase link:
29,65 USD - Amazon.com
41,30 EUR - Amazon.de

I've pre-ordered at Amazon.de and pay'd 31 EUR. Delivered today. And it bleeds quality!!!
Just some facts:
Big hardcover book, BTTF logo on the front embossed, thick paper with high quality pictures exclusive to this book and also exclusive text content only for this book. AND: A SHITLOAD OF REMOVABLE EXTRAS LIKE: Jaw 19 poster, LENTICULAR photo of Marty and his disappearing family, letters, notes, envelopes and and and so much more :hungry::hungry::hungry: All content are in the book, some loose some decent sticked to the page so you can leave it in there or take it off ...

This is the official press-text:

Great Scott! Go Back to the Future with Doc Brown and Marty McFly in this visually stunning look at the creation of one of the most beloved movie trilogies of all time.

Few films have made an impact on popular culture like the Back to the Future trilogy. This deluxe, officially licensed book goes behind the scenes to tell the complete story of the making of these hugely popular movies and how the adventures of Marty McFly and Doc Brown became an international phenomenon.

Back to the Future: The Ultimate Visual History is a stunning journey into the creation of this beloved time-traveling saga and features hundreds of never-before-seen images from all three movies, along with rare concept art, storyboards, and other visual treasures.

The book also features exclusive interviews with key cast and crew members—including Michael J. Fox, Christopher Lloyd, Lea Thompson, Robert Zemeckis, Bob Gale, Steven Spielberg, Frank Marshall, Kathleen Kennedy, and more—and tells the complete story of the production of the movies, from the initial concept to the staging of iconic scenes such as the “Enchantment Under the Sea” dance and the hoverboard sequence. The book also delves into the wider Back to the Future universe, exploring the animated television show and Back to the Future: The Ride.

Written by Michael Klastorin—the production publicist on the second and third movies—with Back to the Future expert Randal Atamaniuk, this book delivers a range of surprises from the Universal Pictures archives and also includes a wealth of special removable items.

Comprehensive, compelling, and definitive, Back to the Future: The Ultimate Visual History is the book that fans have been waiting for.

I know @paulboland you ordered this too. Maybe you can spread also your impression on the book. I'm really stunned and for 30 EUR its a bargain :drool:

Check this out BTTF ninjas @Apollon @Hatori @Actarus @Tacozilla @DADDYCOOL187 @BluSteel2012 @mlmaier84
I had this on order with amazon uk but I had preordered the USA Harper Design version and amazon UK had not shipped my order they kept changing the expected arrival date and is no longer listed as available as amazon UK as the seller

The UK Version from Titan Books is available from Amazon UK and other UK retailers
I reordered the UK version from Titan Books (Same Book as USA with same contents )from Book Depository at a cheaper price €29.83 euro with free shipping and I'm waiting for my order to be despatched


To others deciding to get or not
This book is amazing looking and I expect it will be out of print at some stage so if you not already ordered I would do so now while you can

Is there any difference between the versions you mentioned? Harper Design and Titan Books?
I thought everything is the same. Mine is from Harper Design...

They are the exact same no difference at all
USA is distributed by Harper Design
UK is distributed by Titan Books

It is normal for a book to be from different distributors in USA/UK
It dont affect the book content they are the same sometimes the front of the book can have different artwork cover but the rest of the book is the same

With this Book all including the front cover is the same

Ordered this as well and can't wait for this absolute beauty to arrive. I watched some unboxing videos for this one and this is worth every cent spent on it. I'm looking more forward to receiving this than some pre-ordered exclusives now. Truly a bargain. :hungry::hungry:
