The very scarce book of Antonioni’s 1966 cooler-than-cult film, Blow-Up is packed full of material for the super fan. Alongside the script are B&W stills for key scenes (hello Verushka!), interviews with the director (highlights include the endless retakes of a scene in the photographer’s studio, ending with Antonioni screaming in desperation, “The whole of London is against me!”) and an essay on Cinema-Verite by Antonioni himself. Watch the film, read the book, or just put it on the shelf to impress your friends.
