Since this couldn’t wait for the next regular episode of Star Wars Story Talk, we have a special bonus Unboxing Video as I open up the really awesome, and really hefty Star Wars Art: Ralph McQuarrie two-volume collection from Abrams Books. This mammoth set is written by the trio of Brandon Alinger, author of Star Wars Costumes: The Original Trilogy; Wade Lageose, graphic designer/artist; and David Mandel, art collector, author of Star Wars Artifact Edition and showrunner of HBO’s Veep. You can get the inside look over at StarWars.com, where the three authors were kind enough to answer some questions for me.
No Baby Jawa fun time this time around – just straight unboxing and page skimming madness!
→ Star Wars Art: Ralph McQuarrie – This luxurious collection really is the ultimate for fans of Ralph McQuarrie. It’s everything from concept art and costume designs to matte paintings, posters, and merchandise covers. It is a thing of beauty. But it’s not cheap, so maybe shop around to find a good discount off of the cover price. If you’re into Star Wars art, this is a must. Otherwise, it’s a good thing to throw on the holiday gift list!
Note: Abrams Books provided a copy of Star Wars Art: Ralph McQuarrie for review.
