Creating the Worlds of Star Wars: 365 Days Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In 1997, as George Lucas worked to complete early drafts for Star Wars: Episode I The Phantom Menace, he enlisted the talents of some of the greatest storyboard artists of the modern era to illustrate conceptual storyboards that would inform the development of the final shooting script, as well as the finished film. Working from Lucasand#8217;s ideas for scenes and sequences, these artists produced beautiful drawings that helped lay the foundations for the worlds, characters, and shots of the Star Wars Prequel Trilogy. Together, these conceptual storyboards show early takes on favorite scenes; alternate, unused approaches to character designs and environments; and entirely different approaches to key moments. Like wordless comic books, they have an energy and rhythm all their own that is fascinating to explore.

Now, for the first time, Lucasfilm has opened its archives to present the best of the conceptual storyboards for Episodes I, II, and III. Star Wars Storyboards: The Prequel Trilogy collects the best storyboards from all three films together in one striking volume. Throughout this book, readers will find insight into how these conceptual storyboards helped to contribute both to the creation of the Prequel Trilogy and the expansion of the Star Wars universe.

Praise for Stars Wars Storyboards:

and#147;We had no idea the Star Wars prequels could have been this good! Overall, the book gave us a new appreciation for what could have been . . . Plus itand#8217;s exceptionally gorgeous, and you should check it out.and#8221; and#151;i09

Book News Annotation:

Knoll saw the first Star Wars film in 1977, when he was 14 years old, and a couple decades later he wound up working on episodes I, II, and III as visual effects supervisor for Industrial Light & Magic. For Star Wars enthusiasts and others who want to know how it was done, this book looks at illusions created in all six films (through 2005). The author gives commentary on 365 scenes and enivronments, which are presented in 1,000 color photos of interior and exterior sets and models. The book is 9.5x6.5<"> and comes with a CD-ROM with photos and mini-videos.
Annotation 2005 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Synopsis:

The only book that covers all six "Star Wars" films, Knoll's spectacular survey explores the visual world created by those films. A CD-ROM, with nearly 100 QuickTime panoramas of the sets, adds to the beauty of this edition.

Synopsis:

With the launch of Star Trek: The Next Generation, Gene Roddenberry somehow managed to recapture lightning in a bottle. This new incarnation of Star Trek was an instant hit, and its popularity inspired four films and three spin-off television series. To commemorate the showand#8217;s 25th anniversary, Star Trek: The Next Generation 365 provides a fresh, accessible overview of the entire series, including an authorized guide to all 178 episodes. Featuring rarely seen and now-classic photography and illustrations, this visual celebration of the voyages of Captain Picard, his crew, and the Enterprise-D offers a loving look back at the Emmy and Hugo Awardand#8211;winning series.

Synopsis:

Star Trek Vault charts the remarkable history of the world's most popular science fiction series, examining the franchise's first 40 years. Covering all six Star Trek television series and the ten original feature films, the book highlights the far-reaching social and scientific optimism that underpins the franchise, dwelling on milestones such as its groundbreaking mixed-race casts and technologies that have since become commonplace, before taking an in-depth look at the making of each series and movie. Fully illustrated with more than 350 images, and including 13 interactive reproductions of the most fascinating memorabilia from the CBS archives--on-set signage, hand-drawn storyboards, blueprints for Picard's captain's chair, and a vintage T-shirt transfer--Star Trek Vault provides a broad perspective on the voyages of Captains Kirk, Picard, Sisko, Janeway, and Archer. The ultimate treasure trove of Star Trek imagery and memorabilia, Star Trek Vault is sure to appeal to both the casual and the die-hard fan.

Praise for Star Trek Vault:

and#8220;[A] treat for your inner Trekkie. Itand#8217;s the perfect gift whether you are a fan of Kirk or Picard. Or Janeway . . . we guess.and#8221; and#8212;Entertainment Weekly
