Frank Ocean was tapped to write the foreword for a new book on Moonlight—the Oscar-winning film about the sexual evolution of a black gay man who grew up in poverty.
A24, the company behind the movie, provided a glimpse at the 224-page book on social media Thursday. The work will include an essay by writer/theater critic Hilton Als, beautiful movie stills, Barry Jenkins' screenplay, as well as Academy Award acceptance speeches. Moonlight walked away with three trophies at the 2017 Oscars: It received the award for Best Adapted Screenplay, Best Supporting Actor (Mahershala Ali), and Best Picture.
A24 will also release books on The Witch and Ex Machina. As reported by IndieWire, the "first editions of 2000 copies were offset printed in Europe, using heavy Munken and Garda paper. The covers are debossed with black foil and feature a glossy tip-in image."
The limited edition books will be available to purchase for $60 on Sept. 30 at A24’s online shop.
