Saturday Night Live The Book: The Complete History, On Stage & Behind The Scenes

A1Fe2v7ENzL

On October 11, 1975 at 11:30 p.m., NBC viewers who tuned in to the network’s new late night show saw a sketch featuring John Belushi repeating, in a thick foreign accent, nonsensical phrases about wolverines being read to him by head writer Michael O’Donohue. Abruptly, O’Donohue clutched his heart and collapsed onto the floor. Belushi paused, raised his eyebrow, and then did the same. Posing as the stage manager, Chevy Chase entered the set and feigned confusion before breaking character and announcing to the camera: “Live from New York, it’s Saturday Night!”

In that instant, television, which had long been out of touch with the young and hip, experienced the first seismic tremors of a major paradigm shift. TV comedy as we know it today owes it all to Saturday Night Live, the show that dared to take risks (not least the fact that it’s broadcast live), challenge the censors, and celebrate the work of offbeat writer-performers. Hundreds of gifted and dedicated people have contributed to Saturday Night Live over the years, and this book pays homage to their groundbreaking work. The list of esteemed alumni, most of whom were complete unknowns when they debuted on SNL, reads like a Who’s Who of the past 4 decades in comedy: John Belushi, Dan Aykroyd, Gilda Radner, Chevy Chase, Bill Murray, Al Franken, Eddie Murphy, Martin Short, Billy Crystal, Dana Carvey, Phil Hartman, Chris Farley, Mike Myers, Adam Sandler, Conan O’Brien, Chris Rock, Will Ferrell, Tracy Morgan, Jimmy Fallon, Tina Fey, Amy Poehler, Kristin Wiig, Seth Meyers, Fred Armisen, and Bill Hader—to name just a few.

Now, as SNL celebrates its 40th anniversary, TASCHEN brings you the ultimate tribute to the show. To research Saturday Night Live: The Book, editor and author Alison Castle was given not only full access to SNL’s archives, but also the rare opportunity to watch the cast and crew at work. She spent the better part of season 39 in the trenches, learning how everything comes together in just six days for the live performance. Part encyclopedia and part behind-the-scenes tour, Saturday Night Live: The Book covers both the making of the show and its remarkable history.

Features include:

- Over 2,300 images from SNL’s archives, many previously unpublished

- An illustrated breakdown of the 6-day week at SNL through the years, with an expanded section for the live show

- Seasons reference guide with complete cast, host, and musical guest lists

- Exclusive interview with founder and executive producer Lorne Michaels

The 500 page hardcover will retail for $50 and be released in February 2015.

The Smallest House In The World

Jay Shafer is the creator and resident of the smallest house in the world, which he has proudly named Tumbleweed. Jay is an artist and architect, who lives in his home near San Francisco. He sells plans for, and builds, tiny homes in sizes ranging from an extremely small 50 square feet to a practically roomy 500 square feet.

Jay has been living in a house smaller than some people’s closets since 1997.

Jay’s decision to inhabit just 96 square feet arose from his concerns he had about the impact a larger house would have on the environment, and because he does not want to maintain a lot of unused or unusable space.

Scholastic Releases Exclusive Images From Upcoming Illustrated Edition of Harry Potter And The Sorcerer’s Stone

HPNewIllustrations

Scholastic this week released four exclusive new images from the eagerly anticipated fully illustrated edition of J.K. Rowling’s bestselling Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone.

Illustrated by Kate Greenaway Medal winner Jim Kay, the images show major characters from the Harry Potter books—Harry Potter, Rubeus Hagrid, Hermione Granger, Draco Malfoy and Ron Weasley plus Hogwarts.

Published globally on October 6, 2015, the deluxe hardcover edition will be full color throughout and will include an elegant ribbon marker and illustrated endpapers. This will be the first time that a fully illustrated Harry Potter book has been published. Many of the original Harry Potter publishers around the globe will be joining the US and the UK in bringing this illustrated edition to life and it is set to be the landmark publishing event of 2015.

“To be given the opportunity to design the characters, the clothing, the architecture and landscapes to possibly the most expansive fantasy world in children’s literature, well let’s just say I’m extremely excited about it,” said Kay. “The story is everything, and so I want to bring what I can to really show the depth of Rowling’s stories, to their best.” Over 450 million copies of the Harry Potter books have sold worldwide and the series continues to appear on bestseller lists in the U.S. Scholastic plans to publish fully illustrated editions—one per year—of each of the seven Harry Potter books.

From Characters To Colors: The Story of Star Wars Celebration 2015’s Official Poster And It’s Rebels Variant By Craig Drake

Star Wars posters are an art form unto themselves. For an artist to capture the essence of Star Wars on a poster — the feel and look of the films, the drama of the stories, Han Solo’s overall awesomeness — isn’t easy. To do it while filtering Star Wars through their own lens is even harder. But Craig Drake‘s stunning new Star Wars Celebration poster, the official key art for April’s mega-event, appears effortless.

There’s a simple reason for this: Drake loves and knows Star Wars, having worked at Lucasfilm for seven years as the senior designer of StarWars.com, and he has that rare ability to convey what we love about a galaxy far, far away in an immediate, almost subconscious way. In his poster, there are classic Star Wars elements: the overwhelming power of Darth Vader, dark and light colors in a sort of harmonious conflict, and a sense of Star Wars-branded danger and excitement. The style, however, is all Drake’s: the lines are sharp, the details simple, the colors bold. Ultimately, the image is unmistakably his own, but successfully adapts his style into the language of a movie poster. So how did he do it?
