Star Wars Art: Illustration
The instant and massive success of Star Wars took Lucasfilm by surprise, but in 1978, an industry unto itself was born, consisting of books, trading cards, magazines, video games, and merchandise. The art created for these projects continues to expand the limits and celebrate the iconography of the Star Wars galaxy. The third book in the Star Wars Art series, Illustration, collects the best of these artworks, as curated by George Lucas. Featuring previously unpublished, rarely seen, and fan-favorite art, Star Wars Art: Illustration explores the wide range of styles that illustrators have brought to bear on a galaxy far, far away. The Limited Deluxe Clamshelled edition is 240 pages compared to 176 pages in the regular edition and includes 5 hand signed archival glicee prints by Brian Rood, Tsuneo Sanda, Jerry Vanderstelt, Christian Waggoner, & Paul Youll.
