Francis Ford Coppola is publishing the notebook he kept during the making of The Godfather later this year.
The Godfather Notebook will be 720 pages long and will give insight into the director’s creative process and feature his personal annotations and directions written on the pages of Mario Puzo’s original Godfather novel. The book will also include casting notes, never-before-published photos and a new introduction by Coppola.
“This notebook was my private work reference to The Godfather film, and after many years, I’m excited to share it with those who may be interested,” Coppola said. “It is the key to understanding what went into making the film from Mario Puzo’s novel.”
At the moment it looks like the book is only being released in the US, via Regan Arts. It will be published on November 15.
The Godfather Notebook will be priced at $50, while a limited number of signed copies will also be available for $250.
