Art of Marvel Studios
on 5 November 2014
This is a set of four art books from Marvel movies. Each of the books was sold separately, although you'll find that it probably cheapest to buy them together in this bundle. Also, the thick outer slip box is exclusive to this set, as is a folded poster that's included as well. I own the Hardcover Editions, and would recommend that version - although a bit more expensive, it's higher quality and will be easier to control.
These books are big and heavy, and the pages are full of vibrant colors. Photos are mostly high quality. The images used in the books includes conceptual artwork, paintings, and CG models. You will also find plenty of set photos and stills from the movies. There are also marketing/promotional materials, such as movie posters. One of the great things about these books is that there are a lot of alternate designs/art that did not make it into the movie - so you can see how the production design progressed over time.
Below is a detailed list of the imagery you'll find in the books:
