2001: A Space Odyssey has been turned into an illustrated edition based on Stanley Kubrick’s film of the same name and Arthur C. Clarke’s short story ‘The Sentinel’.

Joe Wilson has created seven colour illustrations for the book, which envisage the fictional 2001.

The book includes a foreword written jointly by Clarke and Kubrick, as well as Clarke’s ‘Back to 2001’ preface written in 1989. Michael Moorcock, a long-standing colleague of Clarke’s, has written a new introduction revealing his friend’s personality and details about the fractious relationship between Clarke and Kubrick.

The book is published by the Folio Society and priced £29.95.
