The Art of Aardman
The Aardman studio made short animations for children's television, featuring a clay-modelled character called Morph, before the Oscar-winning films of Nick Park (including Wallace and Gromit) propelled the company into the feature-film business. This celebration of the studio's creations is introduced by its founders, Peter Lord and David Sproxton, and features early sketches, character studies, concept art, sets, puppets and film stills of productions including Shaun the Sheep, Chicken Run and Flushed Away.
Yesterday, Today, Tomorrow
In this touching memoir, the luminous Italian Oscar-winner reflects on her life, from her infancy in war-torn Naples to the dizzy heights of worldwide fame. Each chapter begins with an object such as a letter or a photograph that brings back memories: of her family; of her late husband, Carlo Ponti; of friends and co-stars such as Cary Grant, Frank Sinatra, Marlon Brando and Richard Burton; and of the joy and satisfaction of being a mother and a grandmother.
