OUT NOW FROM ABRAMS: 'STAR WARS ART: RALPH McQUARRIE (100 POSTCARDS)'
As we continue celebrating the original STAR WARS' Fortieth Anniversary in 2017, how fitting to also celebrate the work of that master visualist who vitally assisted George Lucas in bringing his saga to conceptual reality: Ralph McQuarrie, whose presence in shaping the unique artistic legacy continues to influence, within today's very modern sequel films, and beyond. ABRAMS books have just released a superb and highly attractive post card collection of his iconic work for the original three movies, within a truly gorgeous package that's well worth getting in time for Christmas.
From the desert enigma of Tatooine, to the sky enchantment of Bespin, and the machine versus nature realms of the Endor forest moon, the magic, detail and wonder of McQuarrie's work is once more to be savoured.
Collection details here:
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. Carefully selected from the definitive volume, Star Wars Art: Ralph McQuarrie, these postcards are a celebration of Star Wars as a masterpiece of design and world-building. The deluxe keepsake package also functions as a display frame: the box features a die-cut window, so fans can rotate their favorite production design paintings into view.
