'David Rowe's Art of Knightmare' is a visual record of the process of constructing the programme that became a landmark in the development of chromakey television production techniques. The award winning show ran on CITV between 1987 and 1994 and has maintained a cult following ever since. This book forms an archive of all the surviving briefs, anecdotes, faxes, grids, sketches, drawings and paintings that went into creating the magical fantasy that was Knightmare. There is a foreword from the show's creator and producer, Tim Child and a message from Hugo Myatt (Treguard) who fronted the show.
A Dream Come True For Knightmare Fans.
A properly wonderful book. Lovingly put together with fantastic high res scans - a tantalising peep behind the blue screen curtain of one of the finest shows children's television ever produced. Cannot recommend enough for anyone who loved Knightmare. Enter Stranger...if you dare!
An incredible insight into the production of the fantastic children’s TV show, Knightmare - high resolution images of the never-before-seen sketches, paintings, briefs, and final production pictures for all of the original dungeon rooms. A must-have for any fan!
Really good little book, especially for fans of the early series of the show where the art comes from. If you're interested in the production process it's definitely worth a download. I particularly liked the inclusion of Tim Child's production briefs for many of the rooms.
