Format: Hardcover
Length: 1:22 Mins
British artist Ian Miller (1946) is best known for his gothic and macabre style. Combine that with meticulous pen and ink technique, you have a visually striking image with details that hold your attention, inviting you to pore over each area of the artwork.

This book contains artworks from his career of over 40 years. He has illustrated for magazines, books, and also created concept art such as for Warhammer 40,000. You'll see both his commissioned works as well as personal pieces.

There aren't any chapters but the artworks featured are grouped by subject matter. You'll see dragons, ghoulish warriors and soldiers, fantasy creatures, mechanical contraptions, castles and landscapes, and other nightmarish subjects from his imagination. You'll notice that he's inspired by fishes, robots, and mechanical things. Ian Miller presents his own twist to those subjects and they often look surreal. He also has commentary for selected pieces of work.

One highlight of the book besides the subject matter is the pen and ink technique used. The illustrations when you look closer are created with lines carefully hatched. The form, light and shadows are all created by the amazing line art. Each illustration must have taken an insane amount of time to finish. Many are full page artworks in this book.

It's a great book.

When I first saw an Ian Miller illustration on a paperback cover, such as that gracing the Panther edition of At the Mountains of Madness, I fell in live with his artwork. Sadly, one doesn’t see his work much nowadays, on the book covers on the shelves in Waterstone’s or WH Smith. Fortunately for us, Titan has collected over 300 pieces of Miller’s work, gathered from over the decades, and you can look at these in this sumptuous book. At least the games industry values Miller’s talents – he’s worked on Warhammer 40,000, Shadowrun and others.
Words can’t do justice to the illustrations herein. The pictures are a maze of detailed lines, intricate drawings, some with added colour, many in black and white. Google his name and look at the images in awe. This is a delicious portfolio – with commentary by Miller and Tom Whyte and with the added bonus of a Brian Sibley Foreword. If you like art, get this book. (Review by Peter Coleborn)

I bought this book out of curiosity as I had not previously come across the work of this artist. I am not sure what I expected, but this book far exceeded anything I could have imagined. The imagery is not for the faint hearted and it messes a little with your head by looking into imagined Worlds of horror and disturbing dream like fantasies. The technical ability of this artist is awe inspiring, pushing ink work beyond the realms of the ordinary. I love the fluidity of the images and the colour plates are incredible.

The book is excellent quality, and has an expensive feel to it. This book will appeal to art students and anyone interested in developing drawing skills or just interested in fantasy art. It is not an instructional book, and is sparse in explanation; something I would have liked more of but still an excellent addition to an art book collection. In some ways I am thankful I cannot imagine the dark and disturbing World of Ian Miller, but I also really admire his work.

A tremendous compilation of work from an artist with a truly unique and important voice. His influence can be felt through my own owrk and the work of many other artists of this and the last generation.
An excellent book 10 May 2014

As an overview of Ian Miller's career as an illustrator this is indeed a wonderful collection, with excellent production standards. To have such a book about Ian was well overdue and this one was well worth the wait.
An INCREDIBLE retrospective! 16 April 2014
By Wallbanger - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Received "The Art of Ian Miller" yesterday and am simply blown away!

I've been exposed to some of Miller's art over the years (primarily through older UK paperbacks), and when this book was announced I did a quick Google image search and saw that his work looked even more up my alley than I would have expected.

So I eagerly opened the box from Amazon yesterday and ended up getting completely lost in this book for almost an hour. It was a darkly magical experience!

This book has great production values: perfect size and form factor, nice paper, logical presentation of Miller's dense and hyperimaginative illustrations, well-printed and color-corrected reproductions, etc. For overall effect, I'd put "The Art of Ian Miller" up there with the Underwood Frazetta trilogy - it's just that good!

I don't know if they give out World Fantasy Awards for art books, but if they do "The Art of Ian Miller" deserves one.
