    I am reworking my Match Made in Space cover.

    Here it is ALMOST finished next to my older cover (left).

    I plan of making the text more clear but I have to do it letter by letter and that will take some time.

    Hopefullly somebody else will provide you with the Blu-ray screen capture, in the mean time here is screen capture from a 720p source.

    This is the only frame in the movie that shows a clear shot of the back cover.

    I tried for an hour but no success...

    Of course there are programs for screenshots on blu ray, the normal VLC Player just make DVD shots...

    But there is a copy protection on the Back to the Future Blu Rays, it needs the right (not 100% legal) programs to watch the BRs on the Pc and/or make some screenshots...

    Sorry, I thought it would work somehow...

    There are some high def. pictures out, but no pics from the book... :unsure

    Thanks Mike. Please email them to me so I can have the full res or upload them to a file share.

    Thanks brother! I just did a test print of the cover and it looks GOOD! :thumbsup

    Maybe this one will help. But I'm not sure if a screenshot is really adequate. By the way: I'm working on this replica too. ;)

    Here is the George Photo.

    This is 8% the size of the file I did but it shows that I did the entire photo correctly:

    Amazing work so far! Will you be stretching him a tad more vertically, though? Still seems too squat at first glance to me. Just a gut feeling.

    I'll be making a few changes once I get the book that I will be using as the inside.

    Re: BTTF Match Made in Space Cover (GOT IT) Look at the NEW COVER Post #8

    Yep. Once I get the Oxford English book, I will be able to size the cover exactly and it will fit perfectly. Since I can only print 11x17, the inside white part may be a little shorter. If they come out nice enough, I might have someone professionally print them. Maybe like the TRON Digital Frontier covers.

    I am able to print larger than 11" × 17" with a color laser printer in 1200 dpi. Will you share your file with us, when you're ready, so we can print it out ourselves?

    Not sure yet. I just see all my work being sold on Ebay ALL THE F'N TIME. So I am reluctant to share.

    What happens is that either I share or trade the files and people share them or trade them as well (even when people have said that they won't).

    Re: BTTF Match Made in Space Cover (GOT IT) Look at the NEW COVER Post #8

    Yes, I understand your problem. But the same could happen, if someone buys your paper print. He could scan it in good quality and make his own copies for sale.

    Okay, so I will continue the working on my own cover. When I'm finished, I hope Pitbull will give me his screenshot too. I don't want to make money with my own work and so I will publish all my BTTF paper props here for free, when they're finished. So every fan can use them for his prop collection. And if someone trade them: Who cares?

    Uhm... What was your file?!?

    I remember two files. Old one and a new one... I gave the new one to Pitbull some time ago, but I dont know if that was your file...?!?

    I was very happy with the final result, but after seeing yours...

    Can we expect other overworked props? A new giant cheque? Never got the old cheque...

    That's what I figured but hey it's gonna be really nice once it's completed and we can have a pretty much 100% replica book :love.

    I'm really surprised profiles post such really big pics of the props for sale?

    The Match Made in Space files that have been floating around for the last 7+ years were/are mine. They were poorly made but I was the best I could do with what I had. That is the reason that I never sold them.

    Ok...

    Yes, I would be happy to have something more acurate... I have made a new cover and add a book to it, what looks close... But I still have a normal Inkjet printer and so I can't get sure some props survive over the years... Would be wonderful to have a cover like on the real books, where you can clean it from the dust...

    Looks really nice. Can not wait for the final show. Nice that we now know what book was used. Helps with the dimensions.

    Best,

    Hi Brad! I hope you didn't make high quality prints yet, because I detected some inaccuracy in your work. Look at my following image. As you can see, there are three errors on your pic (notice the numbers):

    on 1) On my screen grabs there is more to see of George's suit.
    on 2) Your pic has too much shadow below George's suit collar.
    on 3) George's suit has many folds at the arm and a slightly shadow at the breast. These are no reflections of light, because you can see the same folds on both screen grabs from different angles.


    By the way: These screen grabs are from the scene, where Marty is holding the book.

    Mike, I got mine too and the thing is HUGE!!! I saw that the 5th Edition was published in 1985 and republished in 1986. What are the dimensions of your book?

    Mine looks like it's really too thick.

    Thanks Roland! :thumbsup

    Hmmm, this can't be the correct edition of the book. Or maybe it's completely the wrong book. As I can see, the book has a blue edge (like the book in the auction catalog). But the book at the movie screen shot has a white and dark red edge. :confused

    Good luck! :D

    It seems that this Oxford Companion book almost fits into the cover because it has the same width and height, but it's too thick. Maybe this book is only used for displaying the cover in the catalog and that could be the reason why you don't see the book closed at the auction image.

    Upon further review and a test print for the Oxford book, I am going to say that this cover is not made for this book. The front part doesn't line up at all.

    What I am going to do is try to find a book that is readily available and cheap enough that everyone can buy it and match up the cover.

    I am convinced that it must be an encyclopedia/world book/dictionary. The two-color-design is typical for such kind of books. I think, in this area you will have the greatest chance to find the correct book. I tried it last night but didn't find anything suitable. :(
