Disappointing, dissatisfying, incomplete.,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Art of "Star Wars": "New Hope" Episode 4 (Paperback)
Bought the equivalent book for The Empire Strikes Back, in 1980s, which was excellent, and so were those for Revenge of the Sith and Attack of the Clones. Therefore I had high hopes for this one.
However I was disppointed that so much of the page area was in my view wasted on a big section at the back on cartoons and kids pictures (25/173 pages), a lot of mediocre stuff, and the complete script. It would have been better entitled The Script with some artwork. No text about the artwork itself, or the creative people who made it.
There are a few full page pencil sketches of dubious value, whilst the fantastic paintings of Ralph McQuarrie are few and far between, and very undersized considering that they have always been the real star of the Star Wars art show.
I think this book just doesn't do any justice to a visually awesome and ground breaking picture.

It's a reprint of a 1977 book... Do a little research and contextualise before making yourself look dumb.

an irrelevant and ignorant comment obviously made after not reading the review properly let alone the book. Also factually incorrect, the film was released in 1977, the original book in 1979.
