Book Review: The Art of Star Wars, Episode IV - A New Hope

From the foreword:

The Art of Star Wars contains an abundance of sketches and paintings that recreate the imaginative process that went into the making of Star Wars. For the reader's convenience, the book is divided into three sections. The first contains the script, annotated by hundreds of visuals, many of which demonstrate the changing plotline and evolution of the characters. The second chapter consists of numerous examples of poster art, including advertising posters that were developed to present the film to the public in the United States as well as abroad. Finally, we devote the last section of 'The Art of Star Wars' to the inerpretations of the film by professional comic artists and cartoonists and the young fans who sustain the Star Wars theme.

The visuals that go by the scripts are mainly storyboards and character sketches. There are not too much ship drawings. Full colour paintings are few also. Well, this is the first art book for the first Star Wars movie.

This book is provided for by Kelvin Chan.
