“Imagination doesn’t compare to our real-life design history. So, on every project, we never start with a blank page.”- Annie Atkins
Fake Love Letters, Forged Telegrams, and Prison Escape Maps: Designing Graphic Props for Filmmaking is a behind-the-scenes look at the extraordinary and meticulous design of graphic objects for film sets

- Dublin-based designer Annie Atkins invites readers into the creative process behind her intricately designed, rigorously researched, and visually stunning graphic props.
