The Shining: A Visual and Cultural Haunting (overlook ed)
Box, 400 , color & bw, 8.7 x 11.8 in, English, Rough Trade Books.
This loose-leafed boxed publication—disguised as the ‘writing project’ Jack is typing throughout the course of the film—explores the film’s cultural legacy through exclusive essays, original recollections, contributions from cultural luminaries, and printed ephemera. At almost 400 pages this publication consists of numerous ‘chapters’ made in multiple formats—glossy pamphlets, image-rich booklets, a haunted hotel scrapbook, and over 120 loose-leaf typewritten papers. Rare, exclusive interviews with lead actors Shelley Duvall (Wendy Torrance) and Dan Lloyd (Danny Torrance), along with a wealth of contributors including Cosey Fanni Tutti, Margaret Howell, James Lavelle (UNKLE), Gavin Turk and John Grindrod re-examine the film through the lenses of music, art, mythology, fashion, gender, and more. The overlook edition includes a room 237 key fob and a hand-painted recreation of The Overlook Maze poster.
