Despite the fact it was release more than half a century ago and has a motel chain and middling film named after it, Super 8 is one of the most storied motion picture film formats ever released. Beloved by an entire class of iconic filmmakers like Christopher Nolan, JJ Abrams, Spielberg and Tarantino, Super 8 is an old school format that still gets a lot of play to this day because its analog format adds a lot of character. That brings us to Super 8: An Illustrated History, a 150+ page, hardcover, coffee table art book that showcases the format through stunning photography while also being a detailed history of the analog medium that’s so beloved. Whether you’re talking about suburban dads, punk rockers or pop culture, many of the greats got their start with this medium and it endures to this day. Super 8: An Illustrated History is available for pre-order now, and it’s set for a release on June 9th.
