Kubrick’s Annotated Copy Of The Shining Revealed In Exhibition

The website Overlook Hotel has released pictures of Stanley Kubrick’s copy of Stephen King’s The Shining. The book is usually kept at the Stanley Kubrick Archive but is currently being shown in a traveling exhibition. Many of the books passages have been highlighted and there are notes written in the margin (some of which are illegible). The book was used by Kubrick as he planned his version of the film.

King later made his own version of the book. It wasn’t as good.
