“a staggeringly beautiful coffee table book collecting some of the movie’s most eye-stimulating imagery” - ComingSoon.net

What could be improved? More information on the Engineers society and their city (yes, Scott confirms that it is indeed the Engineers that formerly occupied Paradise - not another faction of Engineers, not a humanoid Engineers-worshipping species created by the Engineers - they are the Engineers. They are as much the Engineers as much as David created the Xenomorph, enough theorizing/speculating - it's all explained in this book).
I feel cheated that they've withheld content pertaining to the concepts of the Engineers and their backstory in this art book. I was expecting drawings of various Engineers, their robes, caste system and their buildings - absolutely NONE (besides the Cathedral and the Hall of Heads). It's clear that the Engineers have become an interesting side plot.
Not a whole lot on the flashback scene either besides a few one liners. Definitely no art.
Also besides a few passerby comments on Shaw, no concept art or exposition can be found, which is truly disappointing. Why leave out or shorten two of the most profound subjects in Covenant in an art book? For these two reasons, I am knocking out one star. Otherwise it is a solid book that any Alien fan should add to their collection.
This book is fantastic for Alien fans, pictures and drawings for the movie Alien Covenant, large format size. Coffee table book, 192 pages. The artwork and movie stills are the best, and how the Alien has developed by David. The Blue-ray movie will be out on August 15, 2017 on Amazom.
