    Few films have made an impact on popular culture like the Back to the Future trilogy.

    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.

    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:
