Lincoln: A Steven Spielberg Film – Discover the Story is a brand new iBooks title released today. It offers an interactive and in-depth look at the making of Steven Spielberg’s upcoming new movie: Lincoln. The movie is set for release this Friday, November 16 and this book looks great.
The book features a foreword by Steven Spielberg, video interviews with Daniel Day-Lewis (who play Lincoln) and other lead actors and more:
As the story unfolds, the enhanced book offers a glimpse into the life of Lincoln leading up to his tragic assassination, the ending of slavery as well as the Civil War. Lincoln: A Steven Spielberg Film – Discover the Story also includes “making of” photos from the film, an extensive look into the set design, and illustrates how Spielberg was able to recreate history with truth and conviction.
I took a look through the sample for the book, watched one interview with Day-Lewis, and installed the book moments later.
Here are a couple more screenshots from it:
I’m really looking forward to this movie and the book looks like a great companion to spend time with leading up to its release. Spielberg has made so many masterful films – it’s excellent to see him tackle the story of one of our greatest presidents, especially at this particular moment in American history.
