The countdown begins.

One month from today, December 5, the sale ends for our deluxe limited edition of “Nothing Sacred: The Cinema of William Wellman.”

This means that after that date, the book will never be for sale again. There will be no review copies, no book signings, none of the trappings of normal publication. When we say “limited edition,” we mean it.

We have chosen an unusual way to produce and sell this book because the book itself is unusual.

What do you want from a book on film history?

Facts and figures? We go deep, from exhaustive credits, to production and release dates, budgets — all the nuts and bolts of filmmaking.

Great stories? We have hundreds of them from interviews with the people who knew and worked with Wellman.

Wonderful and rare images? The book features hundreds of them — currently, we’re at 1,223 — both in color and black and white. “Nothing Sacred” is printed in color throughout — it doesn’t have a few pages of color images in a signature in the middle of the book. We also have many, many behind-the-scenes photographs, most of which have never been printed before, anywhere.

No American director has ever been celebrated by a book like this. We hope that you will take advantage of this one-time opportunity to own it.
