Reviews The Art of Solo
- First of all let me address the elephant in the room (to quote such an over used phrase) the film is far better than I expected and deserves more interest than it did.That aside this is the latest in the now Abrams series of Disney art of Star Wars books. It follows the now standard format (hardback and landscape profile) of all the other Disney art work books, which incidentally also appear to have been adopted by many other art work books as we...
- I wasn't as interested in the intricacies of this film as I am with other SW movies but this was interesting. I wish they had went with a more alien look for Qi'ra but whatevs.
- Looking at the production of “Solo” from start to finish (without mentioning the directorial shift around once), this highlights the concept art and processes as led by James Clyne (he works for the ILM Art Department, as you’ll be told several times) and Neil Lamont (whose dad, Peter Lamont, designed every Bond film from “For Your Eyes Only” to “Goldeneye”, the 90’s/00’s era James Cameron films, won an Oscar for “Titanic” b...
- Lovely to revisit one of my favorite Star Wars films by way of concept art and behind the scenes text. Still, makes me wish decisions about character deaths were different
- I saw a review for this so picked it up. Really nice artwork behind the scenes!. Will get the other ones also now.
- Well, I loved Solo and I love these Art Of books, so this one is a match made in heaven for me...I would like to have seen some information about what changed with the directorial departure/changeover as this is the only book that covers Solo's production, but I can certainly understand why they didn't want to touch that one.

- As always, these art books are a great peak behind the scenes. Unfortunately, the book goes out of its way to avoid talking about the behind the scenes problems that plagued this film. There is absolutely no mention of any of the directors (neither Lord & Miller, nor Howard). This seems disingenuous given that the director is the one who chooses the look of the film. There's nothing about what any of the directors thought about the concept art or...
- My favourite part of all these new Star Wars films is these art books (oh and the films themselves... and the new Lego sets). Fascinating to see how the look (and plot) of the films developed. I found it curious, but understandable, that this book doesn’t mention the directors by name. Would be interesting to know what Lord and Miller’s influence on the film were.
- Just like the previous books in this series, it provides early concept art of weapons, clothing, ships, and planets that ended up in the final film. It's really cool to see how everything progressed along. It's a huge book with beautiful, glossy pages with plenty of text to help explain what the thought was behind most art. If you're a fan of the movie, I definitely think this is worth your time.
- There aren't better art books out there than the Star Wars ones. I love a good coffee book full of behind the scenes stuff and concept artwork, but all the Star Wars "Art Of" collections are a cut above the rest.
- These books are always a fascinating look behind the scenes. I was especially struck by how painterly the preproduction images were for this movie. The detail on the color story of the film was also eye-opening, something I was aware of only vaguely in the theater.
- A spectacular look at the development of the look and feel of the film.
- The best thing about these "Art of..." books is getting a look at all the art that went into the making of the movie, especially those concepts that finally didn't make it into the movie.
- Regardless of your feelings about the movie(I liked it) this book is in excellent look at the process and concept art behind the making of Solo.
- Beautiful art and fascinating look at the progression of the movie. Lots of typos and grammatical mistakes in the chapter intros that were jarring to read.
- Another great addition to the Art of series.
