I always wanted to do a book like this but I didn’t have anyone to take on the project until Manual Serra Saez came along. His thesis was so awesome we made him the Creative Director for the book. – Bruce Brown

Academy Award Nominee and film maker Bruce Brown has released his newest endeavor, The Endless Summer Book and Box Set which celebrates the 50th Anniversary of his iconic surf film The Endless Summer. Only 1,966 copies of the book will be available for sale commemorating the year of the film’s global release. The Endless Summer Book and Box Set comes with a remastered DVD of the movie, memorabilia saved from his trip i.e., personal letters, news clippings, critic reviews, theatre tickets, maps and a five-frame actual film strip from the original movie and more.
The Endless Summer Book and Box Set took over five years to make and was the inspiration of Manuel Serra Saez who had a passion for the sport and the movie. While attending the University EASD (school of Art and Design) in Spain, Saez created the book for his university degree showing the behind the scenes action of the film. He made two original ‘hand-made’ copies, turned one in for his grade and sent the other to Brown. Six months later, Saez was asked by Bruce Brown Films if he would like to be the creative director for the publishing of the book. Saez was flown to California and spent three months in Brown’s attic going through his personal collection, finding many items that had not been seen or unboxed for well over 40-years including photos, letters and items he used to further enhance The Endless Summer Book and Box Set creation.
