Jareth: I can give you your dreams.
Aaaaand I’m done! All together I think this took me 3 hours to do (I kept taking short breaks). This was made with just copy paper and a mechanical pencil.
Characters belong to the Jim Henson Co.

Through dangers untold. And hardships unnumbered. I have fought my way here to the castle; beyond the goblin city, to take back the child that you have stolen. My will is as strong as yours, and my kingdom as great…
A (tiny) review: “Jim Henson’s Labyrinth. The Ultimate Visual History”
This book came in the mail a few weeks ago, but I didn’t get a chance to talk about it until now. This is definitely not just a photobook where you can flip through it quickly. It’s full of behind the scenes information. It’s practically a textbook (but there are plenty of pretty pictures to oogle too). The book is printed on thick, high quality semi-gloss papers. What’s very cute about this book is that there are little slips of paper that is lightly glued onto certain pages. You can pull those slips of paper out of the book if you choose to, but I was careful when flipping the pages to make sure it doesn’t get pulled out. These little slips of paper are recreated notes, either artist’s renderings/notes, or notes to the cast/producers/etc. There are plenty of new pictures I have not seen before, and this book even came with a poster! I didn’t get a chance to read the entire thing yet, but I can say that there is plenty of information I hadn’t heard of before (though there are also plenty of rehashed information I’ve read elsewhere as well). If you’re only in it for Bowie, then this book might not be for you, because it’s focused on the movie, and not just the character of Jareth, but Jareth does have his own little section dedicated to him (and so does Sarah). I say that this is a fantastic book, and I totally recommend it!
