The Star Wars universe’s biggest appeal is its imaginative assortment of landscapes, vehicles, and of course characters. And the hardcover deluxe edition of Star Wars Art: Ralph McQuarrie gives fans of the saga an inside look at the works of Star Wars’ most prolific and influential artist, Ralph McQuarrie, who first designed iconic characters like Darth Vader, R2-D2, and C-3PO. The two-tome set is a collection of roughly 2,000 color illustrations, all scanned and photographed again specifically for this set, across 800 pages, including costume designs, storyboards, paintings, and more, many at the conceptual stage and many more never before released. It’s also filled with unpublished interviews and commentaries from McQuarrie’s friends and coworkers that’s sure to please even the most obsessive detail-oriented Star Wars fanatics.
