That new Dark Crystal book is in stores now, and we've got a video review of the thing!  It's huge and awesome and y'all should get one for yourselves.

I still haven't even read my Labyrinth book though!

Sell it!  Then buy the Dark Crystal book, read it, and then re-buy the Labyrinth book and read that.

Would it be fair to say that the older book "The World of the Dark Crystal" is more about Thra and the creation of the world, while this new book is more about the making of the movie?

I haven't leafed through the old book in a while, but I recall that was more about Brian Froud's contributions, and the artistry behind the designs.  The new book goes more in-depth into more aspects about the film and its legacy.

The book looks amazing, but I'm equally delighted by the Alistair Cookie doll in the background at the beginning of the video.

:)

How exactly does one acquire an Alistair Cookie doll? Or, to be more specific, 20 Alistair Cookie dolls?
