Ralph McQuarrie was an incredible artist known for his conceptual design and illustration work on many of the movies we know and love such as E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial, Battlestar Galactica, and of course, the original Star Wars trilogy. Now you can own an incredible 800 page two-book set of all the original artwork from the Star Wars trilogy. Here’s a description of the collection:
The visual language of the Star Wars franchise is so ingrained in pop culture that flipping through an art book from the movies can feel like paging through your own family photo album. Star Wars Storyboards is an excellent collection of early storyboard art from the original trilogy, while more recent art books like The Art of Star Wars: The Force Awakens focus on the recent films. For the die-hard fan, though, it’s hard to top Star Wars Art: Ralph McQuarrie. Even if you’ve never heard his name, you’ve probably seen some of his art. His early concept art was essential in convincing Fox to green light the original Star Wars. The massive (and expensive) compendium of his work for the franchise makes an excellent centerpiece for any fan’s collection.
The book set is currently on sale for $99, and they have some other awesome collectors books as well. Check them out here at the inventory website, and wow your friends with this coffee table piece.
