Ralph McQuarrie is the most iconic artist in the history of Star Wars. He worked hand-in-hand with George Lucas to help establish the saga’s visual aesthetic, its inimitable look and feel. Beyond designing Darth Vader, C-3PO, and R2-D2, McQuarrie produced hundreds of pieces of Star Wars artwork, including conceptual paintings, costume designs, storyboards, and matte paintings, as well as posters, book covers, and album covers—even Lucasfilm’s annual holiday cards—all rescanned and rephotographed for this book. In Star Wars Art: Ralph McQuarrie, readers will find the most definitive collection of the artist’s Star Wars work ever assembled, including hundreds of never-before-seen illustrations. Rare unpublished interviews, as well as recollections from McQuarrie’s colleagues and friends, complement and contextualize the art. Star Wars Art: Ralph McQuarrie is a comprehensive tribute to cinema’s most beloved and influential concept artist.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good but not great Ralph McQuarrie has inspired countless artists and has shaped the Star Wars Universe. The reproductions are fantastic and book quality is top notch but I wish they edited down the collection. There is way too much "ok" art rather than great art, basically I would've preferred quality over quantity.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Star Wars Art Book You'll Ever Own If it has Ralph McQuarrie on the front of the book, then buy it. This is the guy who's responsible for the look of Star Wars. Although he hasn't made art for the movies since Return of the Jedi his sketches and designs are still being used in the new movies. Even though he has passed on his influence will be felt in Star Wars forever
