The Story of The Fifth Element is part production journal and part art book. The production side is written by Luc Besson, the director of the movie.
Luc Besson looks back at the struggles he had to content with, way back in 1975, when the idea for the movie was conceived, and the first 200 pages of the script thrown away because it was too verbose, self-indulgent. The book highlights all sorts of challenges of producing a film and makes for a great read. There are many interesting stories from casting to the creation of sets. There are interviews with fashion designer Jean-Paul Gaultier, production designer Dan Weili, artists Jean-Claude Mezieres and even Moebius.
The latter part of the book collects the concept art for the characters, costumes and the spaceships. All pretty cool to look at.
The book's a great read but will probably appeal more to fans of the movie.

Luc Besson, is not only a great director, but also a one of the few who selflessly discloses his approaches, challenges and solutions to those in his books. The Story Of Fifth Element perhaps has little less of the insider info than his book about "La Femme Nikita", but whatever it may lack there it more than makes up for with its collection of artworks and fashion illustrations created by one of the greats - Jean Paul Gaultier.
Fifth Element is one of my favorite films, and this book goes really well with it.
