We are at it AGAIN! Our ceiling renovations begin January 22nd and should last a couple of weeks (???)

Sorry for any inconvenience and thank you for your understanding. We hope to see you soon under our higher ceilings and updated lighting!
“Star Wars Art: Concept is a glorious coffee-table book that’s chock full of great artwork by many of the masters who’ve worked on the film.” —io9.com
Foreword by Joe Johnston Preface by Ryan Church Introduction by Doug Chiang Afterword by Erik Tiemens
From Ralph McQuarrie and Joe Johnston to Doug Chiang, Ryan Church, Iain McCaig, Erik Tiemens, and the next generation of animation and video-game artists, Star Wars Art: Concept collects, for the first time ever, the very best Star Wars conceptual artwork. As curated by George Lucas, the artwork that helped bring the Star Wars saga to life is revealed in all its glory, featuring pre-production drawings and paintings from the Original Trilogy, the Prequel Trilogy, the TV shows, and the video games.
Spanning the years from 1975 to the present, Star Wars Art: Concept is a fascinating look at the process of conceptual design. From pen and paint and paper to the digital realm, the result is the creation of breathtaking iconic worlds, vehicles, and characters that successive generations have embraced and made their own.
“Legendary production artwork gets the showcase it deserves.” —Star Wars Insider magazine
