From cover:

Starting with a brief history of the field, Mr. Preston's lively, well-written text leads the reader through the ins and outs of the responsibilities and duties that fall on the art director's shoulders. A wealth of information on preparing script breakdowns, research, design and presentation, scouting and working on locations, set design and construction, working as part of a team, and much more is coupled with examples drawn from the author's own experiences.

This book is a must-read for all aspiring production designers and all filmmakers who desire a firm understanding of the physical process of film production.
