Kurzbeschreibung

1. Oktober 2012 Star Wars Art
The unprecedented box office success of 1977's Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope, and the ensuing pop culture phenomenon, took Lucasfilm by surprise. Fans had to wait nearly a year for the first action figures to appear. But as of 1978, an industry unto itself was born, consisting of Star Wars books, trading cards, magazines, video games and merchandise. Thirty five years later, these printed book and magazine covers, trading cards and collector's items continue to expand the limits and celebrate the iconography of the Star Wars galaxy through painting, illustration and graphic design. Now, the third book in the Star Wars Art series, Illustration, collects the very best of these artworks, as curated by George Lucas: more than three decades of book jackets; art from StarWars Insider magazine and role playing guides; limited edition prints; Topps' Star Wars Galaxy trading cards; marketing artwork from LucasArts video games and Lucas Licensing; and one of a kind works generated for collectible merchandise. Featuring previously unpublished, rarely seen, or fan favourite art from John Alvin, Brett Blevins, Rick Buckler Jr., Dave Dorman, Tommy Lee Edwards, Hugh Fleming and many others, Star Wars Art: Illustration celebrates the wide range of styles, influences, and tones that illustrators have brought to bear on a galaxy far, far away ...

5.0 von 5 Sternen Fantastic art collection 12. November 2012
Von Parka TOP 500 REZENSENT
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Länge: 1:21 Minuten
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.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Sehr vielseitig! 15. März 2013
Von Sophia
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
Meine Erwartungen wurden vollkommen erfüllt, dieses Buch zeigt vielseitige Illustrationen, die von unterschiedlichsten Künstlern mit unterschiedlichsten Medien geschaffen wurden. Ich bin dadurch auf den guten Herrn Vandersteldt aufmerksam geworden, welcher unter anderem auch grandiose Artworks zu "Der Hobbit" zu bieten hat. Ein kleines bischen Concept Art ist ebenfalls zu finden, die etwas vom gewohnten Star-Wars-Look abweicht. Insgesamt wirklich sehr zu empfehlen!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Star Wars art, beautifully revealed 30. September 2012
Von L. W. Swint - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
"Along time ago in a galaxy far, far away..."

George Lucas, the creator of the "Star Wars" Saga, once described himself to journalist Bill Moyers, as a romantic. Part of this personal ideal is a fondness for the art of the past. This can explain Mr. Lucas' affection for movie poster art of Hollywood's bygone era, and his preference to feature posters of his films painted by talented illustrators rather than created using photographic design techniques which is the norm in contemporary Hollywood movies. Hence, nearly all the posters promoting Mr. Lucas' "Star Wars" 6 film cycle have envisioned his "galaxy, far, far away" through the use of the pencil or the brush rather than the lens of a camera. From even before the beginning of the success that became the "Star Wars" Saga, Mr. Lucas used art as a means to not only bring his ideas to life, but to also further showcase his mythic story to a worldwide audience. "Star Wars Art: Illustration" is a book featuring a wealth of artistic renderings detailing the many people, places and things that are a still growing part of this vast, imaginative universe.

By the Maker, this is a beautiful book!

As a "Star Wars" fan from its earliest days, I was presupposed to enjoy this collection, but when I opened the book, adorned with a lush painting of Jedi Master Yoda by Jerry Vanderstelt on its dustcover, my enthusiasm was confirmed by 2 pieces of art reproduced on its first few pages: The cover to Alan Dean Foster's 1978 novel, "Splinter of the Mind's Eye," and the cover to the very first "Star Wars" novel, subtitled "From the Adventures of Luke Skywalker," ghost written by Mr. Foster for George Lucas, and published in 1976. These covers were created by the man who could be called the godfather of "Star Wars" art, the late Ralph McQuarrie, who passed away on March 3, 2012. This gifted illustrator, under the guidance of Mr. Lucas, was instrumental in first illuminating the vision realized in the films that came to be called the Original Trilogy. Mr. McQuarrie drew and painted in a clean, precise style that combined the other-worldly settings imagined by George Lucas with the used universe concept the filmmaker desired to create the seeming reality of his "Star Wars" galaxy. The shared vision of Mr. Lucas and Mr. McQuarrie would form the template that inspired nearly all the artists that contributed to interpreting "Star Wars" in the following decades. This book is dedicated to his memory.

"Star Wars Art: Illustration" is an enchanting showcase of artwork created in the vast world of "Star Wars" merchandise. The galaxy of adventure that George Lucas originally imagined as just a film story exists beyond the wonders of the cinema and thanks to the amazing success the movies made for him, Mr. Lucas has continued to bring the saga to its enthusiastic audience by means of other mediums. Books, toys, comics, video games, trading cards and more have become the "Star Wars Expanded Universe," an outlet to further feature Luke Skywalker and his family, friends and foes in their galactic struggles of good versus evil. All these ongoing adventures have to be illustrated and this book is a celebration of the wondrous results of the "Star Wars" Saga as seen outside the movie theatre.

The primary joy of this book is its reveal of artwork used in promoting a toy in a box or a trading card in a small size: the illustrations reproduced within its pages are no longer encumbered by big, bold logos, tons of text, folded cardboard containers or diminutive dimensions. "Star Wars Art: Illustrations" allows the reader to truly see the artwork and gaze upon how beautiful it really is. While the book does include reprints of posters and limited-edition prints, its true triumph is its offering of art commissioned as part of a merchandise tie-in...set free as just works of art. For example, a set of paintings by veteran artist Drew Struzan are featured well into the collection. Created as part of the "Star Wars" novel series, "The Black Fleet Crisis Trilogy," by Michael P. Kube-McDowell in 1995-96, the illustrations are produced in a much larger size here than in their original paperback book format and they are striking. The paintings look worthy enough to be posters for the "Star Wars" movies themselves! Another special delight for this reviewer was the discovery of the stunning art created for the "Star Wars: Wizards of the Coast" Roleplaying Game series by Terese Nielsen and Dave Seeley. As one who has never taken part in roleplaying, this particular "Star Wars" merchandise was outside of my fan experience. I could have possibly never seen this excellent artwork if not for this book.

There are well-known names in "Star Wars" art lore represented in this collection: Dave Dorman, Hugh Fleming, Greg and Tim Hildebrandt (better known as "The Brothers Hildebrandt"), to list a few. Tsuneo Sanda has a large body of work included. A book devoted to his "Star Wars" art wouldn't be a bad idea. But there are other talented artists featured as well, like the above-mentioned Jerry Vanderstelt, Jason Palmer, and Brian Rood. They all contribute classic images of "Star Wars" art.

One notable omission in "Star Wars Art: Illustration" is the absence of art depicting worlds or characters featured in "The Clone Wars" computer generated animated series. The young Jedi Padawan, Ahsoka Tano, is no where to be found in this collection. Perhaps this TV saga will have its own special "Star Wars Art" book published someday.

Experiencing great art can be like enjoying a feast. It can fill you up; enrich you, body and soul. As I paged through "Star Wars Art: Illustration," I was rewarded with that sense of joy, that sense of fulfillment. This is a beautiful book and it comes with my highest recommendation.
