This beautifully designed coffee table book commemorates Morning of the Earth’s 50th Anniversary and showcases 170 brilliantly remastered images from the film. Executed without compromise, it is the definitive companion, featuring 50 screen grabs from never-before-seen outtakes that reveal a forgotten past. The book is swiss-bound for a truly immersive lay-flat experience, presenting crystal clear imagery on uncoated paper stock that transports the viewer back to a land before time. See Australia, Bali and Hawaii before rampant development took over; see the wide angled point of views that didn’t make the film; see legendary scenes like the surf discovery of Uluwatu, Bali; and travel back to the early 70’s where country soul was life, and surfing was too.
The book includes a 40-page introduction with Albert Falzon and Torren Martyn, a foreword by David Elfick, and essays by Sean Doherty, Jamie Brisick, Simon Jones and Falzon, who share intimate stories, dive deep into the history of the film, reveal rare never-before-seen archival treasures, and explore the early development of an artist and the filmmaker’s journey. This treasure keeps the story going and, as a comprehensive look at Morning of the Earth’s 50-year heritage, is a must-have and pre-requisite for any surfer and cinephile alike. It is a stunning time capsule that paints a picture of imagination and will allow you to fall in love with Morning of the Earth all over again.
