The first thing to be indicated with Marvel's book Guardians of the Galaxy: The Art of the Movie, it is first one of the collection Art of Marvel movie has to exceed 300 pages. Indeed the precedent made 272 pages and this one makes 336! On the other hand, I expected a bigger artbook, because it has the same thickness as other one having fewer pages. The cause in it? And well the pages of this artbook are a hair finer, but feel reassured it is all the same good quality.
Other importing point, the artbook is squeezed well in the case and thus it does not fall when we tilt it a little. It was one of the problems cleaning the previous cases of the collection Art of Marvel movie. Well it is very beautiful, but the contents of the artbook in all this, that gives what.
And well it is because of the happiness my dear friend! Many illustrations full page, and especially height of artworks everything in colors on the research for all the protagonists of the movie and for lands. We can blame, on the other hand, that the illustrations are for a dark great majority, because we do not see very certain details and it is a real pity.
For the contents, everything is, and it is always one treats to see the various researches) for all the characters at the level of their physical appearance and their style.Read more ›
There are full splash pages of fantastic model work, skin textures, vehicle designs, all with minimal text. The Slipcase is the "A" film poster (pictured above) with Peter Quill, Groot and Rocket on the front, and Drax and Gamora on the back. The actual book cover is a great piece of concept art with more of a matte finish as opposed to the glossy slipcase finish. Both are top notch, the book fits snug in the slipcase but not too tight that it's difficult to get out. Just an overall awesome presentation. Keep in mind, this is an art book, not a behind the scenes book about the making of the film. There aren't pictures of the actors in costume, or a bunch of still shots from the film, it's preliminary art and concept art. It is, after all, an art book.Read more ›
LONG VERSION: My frame of reference for movie art books was established by the Star Wars "Art of" series. The original trilogy art books were very heavily weighted toward design evolution, showing how AT-ATs and cloud cars and so on changed from initial conception to final product. They also had some matte paintings, especially for ESB, and some storyboards, mostly for space battle and speeder bike sequences in ANH and ROTJ. But almost nothing in way of explanation in terms of how and why artistic decisions were made.
The prequel trilogy art books started providing more explanation from the artists about how and why they made their design choices. The TPM book had a lot of design evolution and many lovely concept paintings. For AOTC, digital paintings used in pre-viz take up a lot more of the book, so consequently you get less in terms of design evolution. By the ROTS book, the design evolution element is barely represented at all; pre-viz paintings take up almost the entire book.Read more ›
