Ralph McQuarrie is the most iconic artist in the history
of Star Wars. He worked hand-in-hand with George Lucas to
help establish the saga's visual aesthetic, its inimitable
look and feel. Beyond designing Darth Vader, C-3PO, and
R2-D2, McQuarrie produced hundreds of pieces of Star Wars
artwork, including conceptual paintings, costume designs,
storyboards, and matte paintings, as well as posters, book
covers, and album covers. Even Lucasfilm's annual Christmas
cards all rescanned and rephotographed for this book.
Star Wars Art: Ralph McQuarrie, readers will find the most
definitive collection of the artist's Star Wars work ever

illustrations. Rare unpublished interviews, as well as
recollections from McQuarrie's colleagues and friends,

McQuarrie is a comprehensive tribute to cinema's most
