This deluxe two-volume set explores seven-time Academy Award–winner Rick Baker’s 40-year journey as a special makeup effects artist.


From the gory zombies of Michael Jackson’s Thriller and the staggeringly lifelike Bigfoot in Harry and the Hendersons to the creative builds in Men in Black and the groundbreaking effects in An American Werewolf in London, Rick Baker’s special effects, makeup, and prosthetics count among some of Hollywood’s most enduring achievements.

This deluxe, two-volume set is replete with more than 1,700 four-color images and original sketches. It covers the makeup artist’s 50-plus year career in which he’s won seven Academy Awards, one Emmy, and three British Academy Film Awards, among numerous others.
