Cinephilia and Beyond posted a copy of The Illustrated Blade Runner for download

Cinephilia and Beyond:

When the film came out in 1982, Blue Dolphin published this paperback book so as to enrich the film release, along with the Blade Runner Sketchbook. Standing as invaluable accessories and offering greater depth to Blade Runner’s irresistible lore, both books went out of print over the years and became highly desirable objects on the market. While the sketchbook, a brilliant collection of Syd Mead, Mentor Huebner, Charles Knode, Michael Kaplan and Ridley Scott’s production designs, can be luckily found floating around the vast online ocean, The Illustrated Blade Runner remained unattainable for our thirsty eyes, with occasional copies of questionable quality popping up at online retailers for basically small fortunes. As we’ve finally gotten our paws on a mint copy, we’re delighted to be able to share this little piece of treasure with all of you.
