Bargain Bin

The cost of “Stanley Kubrick’s Napoleon: The Greatest Movie Never Made,” a serious film buff coffee-table book that started out costing many hundreds of dollars, is now down to $40.47 on Amazon. I think this might be the poor man’s abridged version and not the first-edition, velvet-bound 35-pound version. Still, the markdown indicates that it didn’t sell like Taschen was hoping it would.

  7. The first version was way too heavy at 23 lbs., too big, and too expensive. However, it was more manageable as a book because it actually contained 10 smaller books that one could easily pick up and read anywhere one wished. And without damaging the spines.

    This new version is a lot cheaper, lighter, and compact but difficult to read as the pages curl toward the centre, this also makes it harder to enjoy the photographs.

    Still, I would buy it and the other Taschen book “The Stanley Kubrick Archives” if the prices go down a little bit more.
