Stanley Kubrick’s 1968 science fiction film 2001: A Space Odyssey was groundbreaking at the time and remains a constant classic and “must see” for any science fiction film buff. In the 1970s, not long after the film was released, The Making of Kubrick’s 2001, a 96-page photo insert was edited by Jerome Agel. The book has been scanned and put online by Cinephilia and Beyond and is available in its entirety.
The book contains the full text of Arthur C. Clarke’s short story The Sentinel, upon which 2001: A Space Odyssey was based. It also contains profiles, interviews with technical advisors, Stanley Kubrick’s Playboy magazine interview, and a great number of photographs going behind the scenes in the shooting of the movie.
