James Cameron recounts 50 years of cinematic art in lavish ‘Tech Noir’ book (exclusive)

As one of the preeminent filmmakers of our generation, screenwriter/director James Cameron has taken us into the nightmare world of killer cyborgs in “Terminator,” on a bug hunt to LV-426 in “Aliens,” aboard the doomed ocean liner for “Titanic” and to the exotic planet of Pandora in “Avatar.”

But few people are aware of his incredible artistic aptitudes on display in decades of concept art, pre-production sketches, storyboards, and technical blueprints created for his Hollywood film projects, both produced and unproduced. Now a deluxe new coffee table book by Insight Editions collects nearly fifty years of Cameron’s artwork dating back to his high school days in Ontario, Canada.
