Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase

(This review is updated to reflect some comments made by the publisher in the comments section.)

This is the updated edition of the 2004 edition Drew Struzan: Oeuvre. The publisher Titan Books considers it a brand new edition, with lots of additional and up-to-date material, plus text by Dylan Struzan - Drew's wife. It is described as 'a sumptuous companion volume to The Art of Drew Struzan'.

So what's the difference between this book vs The Art of Drew Struzan and The Movie Posters of Drew Struzan?

The Movie Posters of Drew Struzan is a 120-page hardcover selection of movie posters up to 2004. The Art of Drew Struzan is the 160-page hardcover selection of works featuring lots of accompanying sketches together with his finished drawings, complete with commentary on his thoughts and stories behind each piece. Oeuvre is collection of works representing his career, up to 2010.

Much of what you see here is duplicated in The Movie Posters of Drew Struzan so there's no point getting that book, especially when the price different is small. Even though there is duplication in The Art of Drew Struzan as well, that book is still worth getting because of his sketches and if you want to read about his creative process.

Alright, back to Oeuvre.

Drew Struzan's art is beautiful, possibly unparalleled. You already know that.

The amount of work he created is immense and this book is a tribute to his mastery.

5 of 6 people found the following review helpful By Alan Poe on 26 Sep 2011
Format: Hardcover
This updated edition of the 2003 career overview of renown illustrator Drew Struzan, is a genuinely mammoth compilation of some the most striking movie poster art of the last thirty years. In it, not only will you find virtually all of the officially released posters by Struzan, but you will also see many of his lesser known works that were used for books, stamps and other products, and the artist also offers up his own non-commissioned personal artworks for our curiosity.

Among movie poster artists, Struzan is masterful, his contributions to the once-prominent technique of hand-drawn movie posters stands shoulder to shoulder with names such as Saul Bass, John Alvin, Tom Chantrell, Vic Fair, Eric Pulford, Renato Fratini, Bob Peak, and Richard Amsel. It's also worth mentioning J.C. Leyendecker, a supremely gifted and inventive classically trained early 20th century illustrator whose style appears to have bore some influence on Struzan's early work. Likewise, the 19th century Czech illustrator Alphonse Mucha, who is almost-solely remembered for inventing art nouveau but whose talents spun much wider and deeper than that, was also an influence on Struzan (and a great many others!).

Yes, Struzan's earlier pre-Indiana Jones work (wisely) does borrow from these old masters however, following his poster for 1983's Return Of The Jedi (the one framed around Vader's iconic visage and the final light sabre battle between Vader and Luke), a unique "look" began to emerge. The work became more elaborately designed, tighter in rendering, and altogether more harmonious.

I'd been looking for a copy of this for a long time.Got this from Amazon Warehouse deals for a very nice price.

This is the updated version and contains a lot of work duplicated in the Movie posters book.
Over 300 illustrations on 314 pages. A fantastic addition to any collection for anyone with any interest in the history of Struzan's work.
Possibly the definitive guide to his work.
Amazing scope pictures from sketches to final works including some work that I had never realised he'd done.
Enormously pleased.

4 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Gareth Wilson - Falcata Times Blog TOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 25 Sep 2011
Format: Hardcover
Whilst the name of Drew Struzan may not be instantly identifiable to a great many people, his artwork is iconic and as such this beautifully presented selection of pieces from his whole career to date makes this a title that is not only hard to put down but visually stunning.

Within are pieces from Star Wars to Indiana Jones, from cult films to personal choices. It's a wonderful journey to explore and if you're of a certain age a chance to wonder down memory lane. The only change that I'd like to have made to this would have been more from the artist himself about the inspiration behind the pieces and the choices but other than that it's a title that stands on its own and one that is not just a coffee table book but one to be shared and enjoyed. Magical.

I really love this book. It has a large quality and variety of movie poster artwork. It's got a bunch of full-page artwork from some of my favorite movies: Star Wars, Back to the Future, Raiders of the Lost Ark, Harry Potter, etc. There is also some of Drew Struzan's personal artwork included, that was very interesting to see as well.
