Editorial Reviews

Review

“A new book called Star Wars Art: Posters collects some of the most iconic—and stylistically diverse—broadsides.”
(Gizmodo)

“Abrams Books is coming out with a new book collecting the best posters from around the world . . . Some are a little weird, but all are incredible and tap into that old sense of wonder. Don’t worry, though; Darth Vader won’t silence you for liking these.”
(The Verge)

“Yes . . . the Force is strong with this book.”
(Examiner.com)

“From 1970s concept sketches to more recent limited-edition prints, the art is a testament to the enduring force of the franchise.”
(The Wall Street Journal online)

“Full of sumptuous, jaw-dropping visuals . . . a feast for the senses.”
(Wired)

“Absolutely awesome.”
(io9)

“The promotional images for the Star Wars movies unquestionably hold a hallowed place in film and cultural history, and they’re all beautifully reproduced in Star Wars Art: Posters, the fifth and final volume in the George Lucas–curated series.”
(Flavorwire)

This is the fifth book in the Star Wars Art series and it's one of my favourites. The earlier four books are Visions, Comics, Illustration and Concept, and they all look at different type of art.

My favourite is still Star Wars Art: Illustration but I'm loving this poster artbook too.

Star Wars Art: Posters is almost as thick as the earlier books at 180 pages. It's still hardcover and it's still huge.

There's a nice foreword written by movie poster master artist Drew Struzan and an introduction by artist Roger Kastel, both reminiscing the early days of painting Star Wars posters.

All the posters in the book are reproduced without any type or logos. You get to view the artworks in their full glory. The reproduction is fantastic. Many of the artworks are printed right to the edge of the paper. Selected pieces are zoomed in even further. It's wonderful to look at them huge and scrutinise the details.

There are more posters than I expected. In addition to the many poster variations to the original and prequel trilogies, there are also those created for spin-offs such as for video games like LEGO Star Wars, animation like Star Wars: Clone Wars, advertising, exhibitions and limited edition poster art commissioned by Mondo Tees and Acme Archives.

"A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away..."

"Star Wars Art: Posters" is the fifth book in a series of special art books published by Abrams Books. Each book in the collection is devoted to a specific area of the ever expanding universe that is the art of "Star Wars." The previous volumes of this collection include:

Star Wars Visions
Star Wars Art: Comics
Star Wars Art: Illustration
Star Wars Art: Concept (Star Wars Art Series)

This particular tome provides a distintive presentation of artwork designed to promote the various cinematic tales of the beloved "Star Wars" Saga created by George Lucas. Unlike its predecessors, "Star Wars Art: Posters" is not just part of an ongoing book project devoted to "Star Wars" art; it can also be considered a companion volume to another book, The Star Wars Poster Book by Stephen J. Sansweet and Peter Vilmur, published by Chronicle Books in 2005. While the great earlier book should be considered the more all-encompassing of its subject, this 2014 publication offers artistic treasures of its own which help make it a worthy addition to any "Star Wars" fan's library.

It was alright. The best part was the preliminary drawings but blowing up details with no commentary seemed like wasted paper

Nice oversize format and high-quality presentation makes this a very nice book to have or to give as a gift. There are many posters I had never seen before. It's a nice history of the Star Wars movies and their impact on the movie industry. Some of the foreign posters are the most interesting as they use unique art and are much different from the USA edition. I highly recommend this book for all Star Wars fans to have in their library.
