Michael Jackson: The Making of “Thriller” is an illustrated tribute to the King of Pop and his groundbreaking music video, with hundreds of never-before seen photographs of the artist on-set during the 1983 production of the Grammy award-winning video, directed by John Landis. Considered to be the most successful video project of all time, “Thriller” is beloved the world over, inspiring imitation and a cult-like following of millions of fans.
Photographer Douglas Kirkland and journalist Nancy Griffin were the only members of the media allowed on the set and the resulting artwork captures Jackson both in high performance mode and relaxing on the set. They depict his intricate transformation into the characters in the video, as well as capturing the public and private faces of the artist.

Quotations from various musicians and celebrities that explain the reverence that is felt for Michael, his video, and his career, overall, offer a very special and unique view of someone who seems to have been already explored to the fullest degree
