Kubrick’s Copy of ‘The Shining’

Just finished a short piece abut the new documentary about The Shining, Room 237, for Rue Morgue, so coming across this next bit today seems an eerie bit of synchronicity.

Kudos to Lilja’s Library for posting these images from Stanley Kubrick’s own copy of The Shining, complete with marginalia. While the images seemed to have originated from the fantastic Tumblr The Overlook Hotel, Lilja’s images seem to be much sharper, to the point where you can actually read (sort of) some of Kubrick’s notes. (OK, I’m a huge notebook nerd; sue me.)
