The Wrong House: The Architecture of Alfred Hitchcock: 03/13/12
The Wrong House: The Architecture of Alfred Hitchcock by Stephen Jacobs looks at the set design and architectural representations of space in Hitchcock's films.
The book is divided up by film. Each chapter has a discussion of the film's production, Hitchcock's part in the production, and how the spaces work thematically. There are also numerous photographs and floor plans.
I read the book on a whim after participating in a number of #hitchfest viewings via Tweetchat. Once a week we would watch a film and tweet about it. We've since moved onto #fauxhitchfest, meaning we're watching similar films but ones not directed by Hitchcock.

What a great topic! I have a few Hitchcock films at home that I'd love to go back through with something like this in hand. Thanks for the review.

It would be a great book to have open during a Hitchcock film. Happy reading.
