Book Review: Structura: The Art of Sparth

Structura: The Art of Sparth

Sparth (aka Nicolas Bouvier) is an amazing concept designer and illustrator with an impressive portfolio. You might have been awed by some of the paintings he post on his blog. Now with this book, you can enjoy his work easier.

This book features his concept art and matte paintings. Some of the projects included are, just to name a few, Prince of Persia - Warrior Within (2004), Assassin's Creed (2007) and those not included are Alone in the Dark (2004) and Cold Fear (2005).

The theme is mainly futuristic science fiction, except the some he created for the game. There are quite a few cityscape paintings with flying ships. The worlds he created as just as imaginative as Star Wars. They are beautiful and believable. There's a good sense of space and the vastness for the environment painting that I really like.

This is a book I can easily recommend to sci-fi art lovers.

Wow, this guy really looks good. >< Good review Parka! Thx!

Man, It's been a long wait for the reprint! UK release date for the paperback is 23 April it seems, no mention of the hardcover and looking on the other amazon sites and studio press there's no hardcover reprint?!
