Flip The Pages Of The Out-Of-Print 'Blade Runner Sketchbook' By Syd Mead & Ridley Scott

With Ridley Scott revisiting his earlier work with his "Alien" spinoff/prequel/whatever "Prometheus," and with another "Blade Runner" movie on the horizon, while purists may shudder, he'll be introducing the movies that made him famous to a whole new generation. And there is something exciting (and kind of envious) about younger movie lovers experiencing the terror of outer space and the dystopia of a rain-soaked 2019 Los Angeles for the first time. But for those us who have been around the block already, there is something to take a look at if you think you've seen it all.

Blade Runner Sketch

With Ridley Scott revisiting his earlier work with his "Alien" spinoff/prequel/whatever "Prometheus," and with another "Blade Runner" movie on the horizon, while purists may shudder, he'll be introducing the movies that made him famous to a whole new generation. And there is something exciting (and kind of envious) about younger movie lovers experiencing the terror of outer space and the dystopia of a rain-soaked 2019 Los Angeles for the first time. But for those us who have been around the block already, there is something to take a look at if you think you've seen it all.

Long out of print, with copies costing hundreds of dollars is you manage to find one, some kind soul has beautifully scanned and upload the "Blade Runner Sketchbook" for all to see and persuse. First published in 1982, the book features sketches and conceptual design work by the lengendary Syd Mead (who is currently working on Neill Blomkamp's "Elysium"), Mentor Huebner, Charles Knode, Michael Kaplan and Ridley Scott as well. It's definitely worth a flip through the pages for diehard "Blade Runner" buffs, revealing designs for sequences and objects that didn't make it to the film and more. It's some pretty great stuff. Take a peek below. [ComicsAlliance]
