Ridley Scott's 1982 sci-fi noir is noteworthy for many reasons, but the chief factor is its look: the dystopian, neon-lit, billboard metropolis at the center of Blade Runner has inspired a generation's worth of production design. And in these pages, you can see where that groundbreaking design came from.

The 100-page Blade Runner Sketchbook contains drawings and designs from artists such as Syd Mead, artist Mentor Huebner, costume designer Charles Knode and Scott himself—the director is a gifted artist who contributed a great number of "Ridleygrams" to the film's conceptualization process.
