Back in 1970 a book came out titled The Making of Kubrick’s 2001, an observation and exploration of the 1968 Stanley Kubrick classic 2001: A Space Odyssey edited by Jerome Agel.
Many books have been printed in relation to the movie, but none like this one. Yet for some reason, the book is no longer in print, and is very rare. Until now, that is. The entire 372-page (including cover and back) book has been made available online for the world to enjoy.
The book offers all kinds of great 2001 content, including the first report of Kubrick and MGM making a new movie titled Journey Beyond the Stars; the full short story that the movie was adapted from, The Sentinel by Arthur C. Clarke; strips from MAD Magazine poking fun at the movie; and a wealth of images and quotes and much more.
