The Hunger Games franchise will come to an end this fall with the fourth and final installment, ‘The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2,’ and to celebrate the feat, photographer Tim Palen released the coffee table book ‘Tim Palen: Photographs from the Hunger Games.’ With the original edition heading into its second print run, publisher Assouline announced plans for an Ultimate Edition for high-end collectors.
The description of the book, which will soon be available on Amazon, reads, “In exclusive collaboration with Lionsgate, Assouline presents Tim Palen: Photographs from The Hunger Games. Compiled in one deluxe volume, Palen’s evocative and powerful portraits capture each character from the series with striking intimacy and transform the high-octane adventure of the films into exquisite visual art. Through Palen’s unique lens, Katniss, Peeta, and the citizens of Panem become icons, immortalized as the beloved characters the world has embraced. Photographs by Tim Palen.”
The oversized book, which is 14 x 17 inches, has 144 pages and features 108 images including 11 never-before seen images and art print from ‘Mockingjay – Part 2.’ Only 350 Ultimate Edition copies have been made and each book, which will be signed by Palen, will sell for $800. ‘Mockingjay – Part 2,’ starring Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss Everdeen, Josh Hutcherson as Peeta Mellark and Liam Hemsworth as Gale Hawthore, will arrive in theaters on November 20.
