Star Wars: Visions Gets A Description!

Posted By Mike on March 30, 2010

We've been waiting (and speculating) for a while now and finally Amazon offers up product descriptions for both the limited and regular versions of the upcoming Star Wars: Visions book. See below for the Amazon links and descriptions...


Star Wars: Visions: Limited Edition

"When Star Wars debuted in 1977, it revolutionized the visual landscape of mainstream American filmmaking, transporting fans to new galaxies and introducing them to countless now-classic characters, costumes, aliens, planets, and starships. By 2005, with the last film in theaters, the Star Wars Saga had become a phenomenon impacting cultures across the globe. From the beginning, the Star Wars aesthetic was influenced by comic book artists from the 1930s to the 1970s; famed illustrators Chesley Bonestell, John Berkey, Frank Frazetta, and others; as well as classical artists. 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 of the most well-known and promising working artists-across several disciplines, genres, and countries-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, Arantza Martinez, Syd Mead, Moebius, Paul Oxborough, Alex Ross, Anthony J. Ryder, Dolfi Stoki, William Stout, Dan Thompson, Julie Bell and Boris Vallejo, Scott Waddell, Yuqi Wang, and Jamie Wyeth, Star Wars: Visions is a breakthrough tribute to the worldwide inspiration that Star Wars has fostered for over three decades. Star Wars Visions: Limited Edition 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."


Star Wars: Visions (regular edition)

"Star Wars Visions collects a wealth of art - hand-picked by George Lucas - produced by a variety of artists, illustrators, designers and cartoonists, working across all genres and styles to celebrate their favourite characters, themes, worlds and moments from the Star Wars Universe. The full list of contributors is to be released incrimentally over the 6 months leading up to publication, with sneak previews, on starwars.com."


Star Wars: Visions is currently scheduled for an October 2010 release. Catch up on some glimpses from the upcoming book through the related links below.

Big thanks to Eddie of Starwarstimeline.com for the heads up!



UPDATE: Starwars.com has just added their official Star Wars: Visions announcement. Check out the excerpt below and then click here for the full descriptive read.


"From the beginning, the Star Wars aesthetic was influenced by comic book artists from the 1930s to the 1970s, famed illustrators Chesley Bonestell, John Berkey, Frank Frazetta, and others, as well as classical artists. 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 of the best working illustrators, designers, cartoonists, and fine artists to create new work based on or inspired by their favorite characters, themes, landscapes, and moments from the Star Wars Universe.

Star Wars: Visions collects the very best of these works together for the first time, celebrating more than thirty years of Star Wars with a roster of talent working in every style and genre. Capturing the imagination, beauty, and breadth of the films, television series, and more, Star Wars Visions is both a tribute to and a new way of experiencing a galaxy far, far away."
