The third book in the Star Wars Art series since October 2010. It is far superior in my opinion than 'Visions' or 'Comics' that I have. A great book, full of excellent artist drawings and paintings, from many well known Star Wars artists such as; Ralph McQuarrie, Jerry Vanderstelt, Brian Rood, Christian Waggoner, Dave Dorman, Tsueno Sanda, Matt Busch, just to name a few. Each painting has a small explanation of text outlining the title of the piece, the size, the media it was created in and the year of production.

Many of the images are here for the first time, but most I have seen already in my many other Star Wars books or on the artist's website. As a trained artist myself with a vested interest in Star Wars this truly makes me want to try harder and get recognised.

A must book for any illustrator, especially Sci-Fi and of course Star Wars and good to see in one excellent volume.

Well worth my money and I highly recommend this book.

Can't wait to see what October 2013 brings if there's a 4th book released.

Format: Hardcover
Length: 1:21 Mins
This is a huge book of gorgeous Star Wars art. The book's about 10 by 12 inches and some of the illustrations inside are printed close to A4 size, and even larger for those that bleed to the edge or printed across two pages. Printing them huge is the only way to do it. Some even have additional cropped views for a closer look at the details. The paper is the thick low gloss type. There are 176 pages.

I like this book more than the earlier books Star Wars Art: Visions and Star Wars Art: Comics. Here, most are just classic Star Wars art. Majority are character based with just a handful featuring spaceships and space.

The art is great. They aren't created specially for this book but are curated from all sorts of promotional material, merchandise, etc. The quality is outstanding and awe-inspiring. You expect nothing less when there are names like Ralph McQuarrie, Tsuneo Sanda, Dave Dorman, Jerry Vanderstelt, Terese Nielson, Drew Struzan, Dave Seeley and many more.

Some of the paintings are really detailed and you really have to pause and admire them. Again, it's good that they are printed huge. Tsuneo Sanda's illustrations seem to be infused with some sort of magical glow. While you might have seen some of the art from other books or sources, it's nice to have them all collected in one volume.

This is an excellent book. Definitely one of the best Star Wars artbooks around.

Highly recommended.

(There are more pictures of the book on my blog. Just visit my Amazon profile for the link.)

95% of the images in this collection are what I would call outstanding. The work of Jerry Vanderstelt stands out for me. His depiction of Peter Cushing as Grand Moff Tarkin is staggeringly realistic and beautifully composed.
If you are a fan of these glossy coffee table books and also a fan of the worlds of Star Wars I recommend this highly.

For any SW art fan addict, this is a collection of paramount works by our favourite illustrators and artists alike.

The front cover is exsquisite showing off the best of Yoda in his iconic contemplative mood. As soon as I received the book I was immediately engrossed.

Check out the enlarged image of the painting of princess leia, it just takes your breath away as her image leaps out at you.

The shear calibre of these works are unsurpassed. Just buy it and enjoy!
