Star Wars Art: Visions Foreword by George Lucas, Introduction by J. W. Rinzler
November 2010 - When Star Wars debuted in 1977, it revolutionized mainstream American filmmaking, transporting fans to new galaxies and introducing them to countless now-classic characters, aliens, planets, and starships. In the decades since, the Star Wars saga has become a phenomenon, impacting cultures across the globe.
Just as George Lucas drew upon the work of N. C. Wyeth and Norman Rockwell for his own visual inspiration, he has now invited more than one hundred well-known and promising artists to draw upon the entire Star Wars galaxy for inspiration. Star Wars Art: Visions collects these magnificent artworks for the first time.
Featuring pieces by renowned artists such as Amano, Allan R. Banks, Harley Brown, Gary Carter, James Christensen, Michael Coleman, Philippe Druillet, Donato Giancola, Ann Hanson, H. R. Giger, Daniel Greene, Arantzazu Martinez, Syd Mead, Moebius, Paul Oxborough, Alex Ross, Anthony J. Ryder, Dolfi Stoki, William Stout, Dan Thompson, Julie Bell and Boris Vallejo, Scott Waddell, and Jamie Wyeth, Star Wars Art: Visions is a breakthrough tribute to the worldwide inspiration that is Star Wars.
