If you consider yourself a super-fan of The Hunger Games movies, you probably already have a copy of “Tim Palen: Photographs from The Hunger Games” sitting on your coffee table. The photography book from Lionsgate’s chief marketing officer and award-winning photographer Tim Palen went on sale earlier this year and was so well received that publisher Assouline decided to make an Ultimate Edition of the book to meet the demands of their high-end collectors.
While the original edition is going into its second print run (and will only cost you about $50 over at Amazon), the Ultimate Edition will set you back about $800. Lionsgate’s proceeds from the books – including five copies that will be given away to lucky fans – will go to the World Food Program and Feeding America. Only 350 copies have been made of this oversized hand-bound leather book that includes 11 never-before-seen images and an archival print of the cover image signed by Tim Palen.
Here’s the description of the “Tim Palen: Photographs from The Hunger Games (Ultimate Collection)”, available soon on Amazon:
In exclusive collaboration with Lionsgate, Assouline presents Tim Palen: Photographs from The Hunger Games. Compiled in one deluxe volume, Palen’s evocative and powerful portraits capture each character from the series with striking intimacy and transform the high-octane adventure of the films into exquisite visual art. Through Palen’s unique lens, Katniss, Peeta, and the citizens of Panem become icons, immortalized as the beloved characters the world has embraced. Photographs by Tim Palen. Comes in luxurious clamshell case, limited numbered edition of just 350 copies, includes art print and exclusive never before seen photography from Mockingjay Part 2.
