The book "The production design in the Sketch" consists of two parts: textbook where the author analyses the basic lines of a typical scenographic work, and another, a catalog in which he gives a picture view of scenography in the films produced in Croatia.
Particularly valuable are illustrations, sketches and photographs from 256 feature films filmed between 1944 and 2000. This precious piece is a rich album of Croatian film production design, and is also a unique picture book of Croatian cinematography we have never had.This unique piece is a fundamental work on film production design in Croatia and will surely change the critical opinion, and will encourage young film critics and film historians who do not dedicate enough attention to Croatian film and do not acknowledge the true value of individual authors and works of certain era.
