Featuring the original joint foreword Arthur C. Clarke - the author - and the film's director Stanley Kubrick wrote back in 1968, the book features original illustrations of astronaut David Bowman's journey onboard the Discovery, as his mission to Saturn is hijacked by the infamous onboard computer, HAL.

Based on Arthur C.Clarke's 1951 short story The Sentinel, 2001 was one of the first film's to explore artificial intelligence and the detailed exploration of space travel.

Definitely one for the coffee table wish list.
