From the Back Cover:

Written and designed by the artists of Academy Award winning special effects house Weta Workshop, this indispensable book chronicles their stunning conception and design of the world of Narnia for Andrew Adamson’s The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe and the forthcoming The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian (May 2008). With detailed photography, hundreds of never before seen drawings and sculptures and commentary from the artists and craftspeople of the workshop, this beautiful four-color collector’s edition follows the journey of ideas, from initial sketches through beautifully finished designs to final, exquisitely hand-crafted props, costume pieces, and settings.

Armed with a wealth of fascinating facts and unique imagery, The Crafting of Narnia promises to be a striking, essential companion to The Chronicles of Narnia.
