The Ingmar Bergman Archives

Following the Stanley Kubrick Archives (discussed here and being reissued in a lower-cost edition in October), Taschen just announced the next book in this series:

http://www.taschen.com/pages/en/cata...n_archives.htm
Features include:
• Introduction by Erland Josephson
• Over 1000 scenes from the movies, shots of the director at work, film posters, and photos of Bergman's workbooks and scripts, with explanatory captions
• Rare and previously unseen images
• Rare texts by Bergman as well as interviews, many of which have never been published outside of Sweden
• Informative texts by Bergman's collaborators
• Texts by acknowledged Bergman experts Ulla Åberg, Peter Cowie, Bengt Forslund, and Birgitta Steene
• A chronology, filmography, and bibliography
• A film strip from a copy of Fanny and Alexander (1982) that has been played on Bergman’s own film projector in each book
• A DVD containing over 110 minutes of new and rare documentary footage:
Bergman’s On Set Home Movies (18 mins, with commentary by Marie Nyreröd); Behind the scenes of Autumn Sonata (20 mins); An Image Maker (32 mins), behind the scenes of The Image Makers by Bengt Wanselius; and A Video Diary (44 mins) assistant director Torbjörn Ehrnvall’s video diary from Bergman’s last film, Saraband, in which Bergman talks about his life and work.


Up for preorder on Amazon for $126; $135 at Barnes & Noble (even less with one of the current coupons). I normally would wait on a cheaper edition, but if it's anything like the Kubrick volume, I'll be sitting on this until 2011... Might have to treat myself to a nice birthday present in October.

Will be a nice compliment to the Kubrick Archives.

Wow, I'm a big Bergman fan and this looks like it will be very good. Any idea how much text will be in this? I like the idea of the images, but I'd also like some informative essays. I thought those that have the Kubrick might be able to shed some light.

Also, thanks for mentioning the B&N coupon...I might have to go that route.

I sold my over-sized Kubrick Archives for $450 on Amazon Marketplace and plan to replace it with the slightly smaller second run for $44. I wonder whether they'll re-release this in a smaller, less-expensive second print as well.

Thanks for that link to the reissue of the Kubrick volume. A question for those that have it, does it have any info on unfilmed projects Kubrick was working on, like Napoleon or Aryan Papers? And what of his pre-Killer's Kiss films, are they included?

Preordered anyway!

I've been tracking this one closely and just placed my order with B&N after much debate. I've been so tempted to sell my Kubrick set, but decided that I'm not in this to make a quick dollar, but to collect and enjoy these series once a year . I'm in for this one as well. It'll be a nice addition to my 'Books about Film' collection.

Nothing by John Simon either, hm...too bad. So I guess it's a book + dvd? Were the dvds to the Kubrick thing REALLY worth it?

but

• A film strip from a copy of Fanny and Alexander (1982) that has been played on Bergman’s own film projector in each book
my GOD that is cool

WOW! I wonder if it the film strip you had was a good scene or something?

Can't part with mine or the Some Like It Hot book. Don't know if I will get the Bergman book or not. And wasn't there supposed to be a book completely dedicated to Kubrick's Napoleon?
