One of the real joys of the summer movie season has been watching everyone lose their collective minds over Mad Max: Fury Road — its style, its politics, its history, its energy, and its look. And those particularly taken by the latter element would be wise to pick up The Art of Mad Max: Fury Road , the jaw-dropping coffee-table book companion to George Miller’s action masterpiece. The decades-in-the-making picture has already entered modern movie lore for its eschewing of the conventional screenplay, with Miller working instead from an intricate series of storyboards. Many of those images, in both early draft and final color form, are included in the book, as are character designs, set concepts, and stunning behind-the-scenes images from the shoot. Flavorwire is lucky enough to share these exclusive images from The Art of Mad Max: Fury Road.
