Lucasfilm has put together yet another fantastic book that Star Wars fans are going to love. The book is a collection of incredible geeky Star Wars inspired art called Star Wars: Visions.
Just as George Lucas drew upon the work of N. C. Wyeth and Norman Rockwell for his own visual inspiration, he has now invited more than 100 well-known and promising artists to draw upon the entire Star Wars galaxy for inspiration. Star Wars: Visions collects these magnificent artworks for the first time. Featuring pieces by renowned artists such as Amano, Allan R. Banks, Harley Brown, Gary Carter, James Christensen, Michael Coleman, Kinuko Craft, Jim Dietz, Phillipe Druillet, Donato Giancola, Ann Hanson, H. R. Giger, Daniel Greene, Ron Kleeman, Arantzazu Martinez, Syd Mead, Moebius, Paul Oxborough, Alex Ross, Anthony J. Ryder, Dolfi Stoki, William Stout, Dan Thompson, Julie Bell and Boris Vallejo, Scott Waddell, and Jamie Wyeth, Star Wars: Visions is a breakthrough tribute to the worldwide inspiration that is Star Wars.
We have included several images from the the 176-page book, which is currently on sale over at Amazon for $26.40. Click this link to check it out Star Wars: Visions.
There's also a crazy expensive Star Wars Visions: Limited Edition book which features:
…more than fifty paintings and illustrations not seen in the trade edition, as well as “behind-the-scenes” shots of artists’ working processes, preporatory sketches, and more. Presented in a delux format, with a real-cloth cover and clamshell case, the Limited Edition also comes with five 10 x 12″ high-quality archival giclee prints, signed by artists Jamie Wyeth, Alex Ross, Moebius, Donato Giancola, and Daniel Greene.
This book has a cover price of $400, and even after the 37% Amazon discount it costs $252, which is still way too expensive for my blood! Click this link to check out that one: Star Wars: Visions: Limited Edition.
