    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

    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.

    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.

    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.
