That's a tough one--there was so much that caught my eye and that I liked. One aspect I really liked that stood out was Tim's drawings os ST and the one with ST & ML. I just really like his drawings so it was nice to see them included.
Another part that stood out was the double page spread of Johnny/Tim(p40 & 41) sitting reading the script with their expressions. After reading/seeing so many of their interviews together, I would have loved to have been a "fly on the wall" to see what they found so funny in the script.

What caught my eye the first look through upon getting the book were the pictures of the last scenes of the movie, where Sweeney is holding Lucy. I knew the story, so I know there is no happy ending coming.
I love details so the chapter on Making Music made the book extra special for me.

I have to agree that the double paged pictures, especially of them dancing in the pie shop, are magnificent! I love the close up pictures too, the razors, Pirelli's purse. I did read the 'making music' section a few times because I found it all so fascinating!
As far as something that really caught my eye, page 107 and 166. He really is a creature of the night and it reminded me of old horror movies.

When I turned to page 34 I gasped out loud - the full-page black and white profile shot. I can't place it to a specific scene in the movie, but I'm fairly certain that's Sweeney there and not Johnny (do you know what I mean?). What was he thinking at that moment?
The BTS information is fascinating. Thanks to page 89 I was able to really marvel yesterday when JT & the Beadle are walking down those steps - the only "real" things in that shot. It made me appreciate the process so much more.
And I was very grateful that we had a close-up shot of that ring so many of us had speculated about after the first trailer was released.

For me it was special because of the many bloody Sweeney Pictures, where he kills. And that you can read the whole movie with pictures.

I'm coming in late on this, but my personal favorite part of the book was the section that covered the recording sessions. I loved reading about the different people's perspectives on how they approached the music, especially with many of them having not sung like that before. And, oh, to be a fly on the wall when Burtno and Sondheim and the orchestra were all in the same room together!
I think my favorite photos were the ones of Tim and Johnny as well. And all the costume sketches and set workups were great. It's a crime if Colleen Atwood doesn't get an Oscar nod for this. I still think she got robbed for the Sleepy Hollow costumes.
