This is large format squarish art book with 176 pages. It comes in paperback and hardcover, with the latter costing more than twice as much. Publisher Design Studio Press printed everything with glossy paper. The binding for the paperback is quite good so I'm not sure if the hardcover is worth twice the price.

Inside, the gallery of work featured are the concept designs and illustrations for various movies, commercial projects and games. There are architectural style drawings ranging from restaurants to city scenes to underground bunkers, robot designs for Turn A Mobile Suit Gundam, futuristic designs of vehicles, production design for movies like Mission Impossible III, and even some of his personal doodles and cartoons. Everything is printed large.

The concept designs are cool, especially those of interiors and transportation vehicles. They are meticulously drawn with architectural style lines with controlled colour schemes that you can easily identify. Everything looks very refreshing and unique, unlike any other stuff I've seen from other artists. There's also plenty of first-person commentary from Syd Mead talking about the projects, his ideas and how he created them.

It's certainly the book to check out if you're into futuristic concept or industrial design.

Um das Buch wird von Herausgeberseite mehr Wind gemacht, als es Wert ist. Teilweise sind Abbildungen sogar pixelig. Die haben da die Grafiken der Computerspiele für den Druck verwandt. Jeder, der sich mit Druck ein wenig auskennt weiß, dass die Auflösung dann nicht reicht. Weiterhin ist die Schrift viel zu groß. Ich komme mir vor wie bei einem Sehtest. Der Druck und das Papier sind billig. Man erwartet von einem Gestalter bzw. Designer mehr. In diesem Preissegment habe ich bisher wesentlich besseres bekommen. Ich habe insgesamt den Eindruck bei dem vorliegendem Buch wurde versucht mit extrem wenig Aufwand ökonomisch viel zu erreichen. Die Arbeiten Syd Mead's finde ich gut, das Buch blieb weit hinter meinen Erwartungen zurück. Das Cover hat mich schon nicht angesprochen - eine billig freigestellte Grafik - dennoch dachte ich mir, man kann es ja mal bestellen, zurückschicken geht immernoch. Beim Hardcover wird das bis auf den festen Einband nicht besser sein. Die Druckvorlage wird ja die gleiche sein. Ergo: Zurück damit!

Alles in allem ein guter Überblick über seine Arbeiten,
kommt jedoch an die Klasse von OBLAGON und Co. nicht heran.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Sentury II Review 5. Januar 2011
Von Peter B - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
I just received this book and I have to say it is a fantastic purchase: one of the best collections of Syd Mead's work to date!

For many people learning the "art" of industrial design it can be a daunting task analyzing what it is that makes a great design. A finished Mead painting is so complex and well executed that it can obscure the process behind it and hypnotize you into entering the world. Indeed they are at a real world level of detail, so to have a book so crammed full of line drawings in addition to the finished paintings is an absolute godsend. There are examples of design evolution for several projects, my personal favourite being a massive spread of futuristic two tone car sketches that I wish I could drive, along with the Model T redesign and a drilling vehicle.

Needless to say (but I'll say it anyway), the lightcycle design from TRON 2.0 is superb and a great reminder of how timeless the style of this master can be.

I had high expectations for this release and it has not disappointed in any way.

5.0 von 5 Sternen An Outstanding, High-Quality Art and Industrial Design Showcase 27. August 2011
Von Terry Sunday - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
There are two kinds of people in the world--those who are familiar with the work of Syd Mead and those who are not. If you're one of the first kind, then "Sentury II" is a book for you. If you're one of the second kind, then "Sentury II" would be a good place to start appreciating Mr. Mead's incredible artwork--especially since some of his earlier books, such as "Sentinel," "Sentinel II," "Sentury" and "Oblagon" are very hard to find and quite expensive these days.

If you've seen any of Mr. Mead's earlier books, you know what you'll get with this one. The art is fantastic, of course, in both black-and-white and color. The pages are thick and glossy, and (unlike some of the previous books) the binding seems very tight and not likely to break the first time you page through it. Production values are excellent, with brilliant, vibrant colors, crisp, sharp line work and interesting, very readable text throughout. You can easily spend hours poring over his intricate, far-out technical machines and his fanciful visions of future societies, and reading the blurbs that describe how he created them. I particularly liked the organization of "Sentury II." It is divided into six sections--Design (approximately 17 pages), Illustration (25), Electronic Media (8), Movies (35), Transportation (45) and Drawings & Graphics (15). Collectively, the exquisitely printed plates illustrate in detail the full range of the master's talent in a variety of genres and media. His concept sketches for "The Core" and "A Sound of Thunder," movies with which I am familiar, were especially familiar and fascinating.

If you're a fan of Syd Mead's work, I strongly advise you to pick up this volume sooner rather than later. The future availability of Mr. Mead's books is never certain, and if you don't buy this one now at Amazon's decent discount, you may never have another opportunity to pick it up at a reasonable price. Based on quick checks on Amazon and eBay, I'm amazed at how much my pristine copies of his earlier books have appreciated over the years. That's not a reason to buy them, of course, but it is a nice bonus to know they'll be worth a lot in years to come.

Syd Mead is one of the world's premier illustrators and graphic artists (or "futurist," as he likes to call himself), and "Sentury II" is a stunning visual treat showing some of the best examples of his wide-ranging work. I can't recommend it too highly.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Artist & Visionary 10. Juli 2011
Von Stop Motion Maniac - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
This is a beautifully printed book and follow up to Sentury. I bought the paperback of this book, and I'm very careful when I look through it so that the binding doesn't crack. This is just a fact of life of paperback books. I'm thinking of springing for the hardback version, but I haven't yet. The book is 175 pages and is beautifully printed and I detect no issues with pixilation or paper stock.

The artwork is amazing and Design Studio Press has done an awesome job with color printing etc. The book is divided into the following chapters:

Biography
Foreword
Dedication
Acknowledgements
Design
Illustration
Electronic Media
The Movies
Transportation
Drawings and Graphics

I've been a fan of his work since Blade Runner and if you are thinking of getting this, I would go ahead do so. Once his books/titles go out of print, they become very expensive. I can imagine that this title would be enjoyable/inspirational to many creative types.

Highly recommended.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A must for Syd fans 23. Dezember 2010
Von Franco Brambilla - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
I'm a Syd Fan from when I was a kid. I got all his available publications. Got Sentury and Sentury the reprint and a lot of other great collections of his artworks. This man shaped our worlds of immagination... and he is behind the sets of many great movies and this new book will not disappoint you. More views of his incredible future cities, cars, ships. A vast sea of inspirations for sci-fi artists. The future as I would like it to be... thanks Syd, more please!
