Julie Taymor: Playing with Fire


The third edition portfolio monograph of Director Julie Taymor is now available. Also acclaimed for her scenic and costume design, she is best known as the TONY award winning director and costume designer of the popular musical, The Lion King.

Among the strongest visual directors working today, this third update by Eileen Blumenthal arrives in anticipation of her upcoming film, Across the Universe. The film, debuting September 14th and expanding the following week, will be hard to miss given its judicious use of Beatles songs. Her recent directorial efforts, Frida starring Salma Hayek and the Elliot Goldenthal composed Opera Grendel, also feature in this latest edition.
