Jaws: Memories From Martha's Vineyard

Jaws: Memories From Martha's Vineyard
Jaws: Memories From Martha's Vineyard, by Matt Taylor, features over a thousand photographs taken during the filming of Jaws. The book also includes examples of Jaws memorabilia collected by Jim Beller. Its expanded second edition has sixteen pages of additional material. Director Steven Spielberg wrote the foreword, indicating his approval of the project, though he was not interviewed for the book.

There have been several documentaries about Jaws, including The Making Of Jaws, In The Teeth Of Jaws, Jaws: The Inside Story, and The Shark Is Still Working. Also, Carl Gottlieb's The Jaws Log gives an on-set account of the making of the film. Taylor's book is not a comprehensive guide to the making of Jaws, as it focuses only on photographs and anecdotes provided by local residents, though it provides a valuable collection of previously unpublished images documenting the production of Jaws.
