Beyond Green Gables is filled with striking photography and intuitive comments by writer/director Kevin Sullivan on the visual style created throughout his films, this book is a compendium of many of his best-loved productions. Known around the world for his pastoral masterpiece Anne of Green Gables and the long running, Emmy award-winning television series Road to Avonlea this sumptuous book is a captivating examination of Sullivan¹s visual style. The engaging text takes the reader behind the scenes of numerous Sullivan productions. With the aid of hundreds of movie production stills reproduced in color and some never before seen the book reveals how aspects of Sullivan¹s films are portrayed through various sources of inspiration, often including fine art images.
The book goes beyond illustrating the production design and the unique look Sullivan creates throughout his richly detailed movies and television series. Sullivan also offers insights into the thought process of the design and traditions of the world he lives in. Breakfasts, luncheons and dinners, many of which have been re-staged over the course of four seasons at the exquisite estates, gardens and country houses Sullivan has filmed at, are intermingled with intimate portraits of the star performers who have graced his productions.
This hardcover coffee table book contains beautiful photos from various of Sullivan's works including Anne, Road to Avonlea, Won't at My Back, and other of his films. The book is partitioned into four seasonal sections which discuss events, sceen scapes, and of course food with recipies included. Beautiful for the pictures alone, but the content is also relevant and enjoyable.
