In my opinon The Art of Star Wars Episode 1 is LEGENDARY!  For years I have been coming back to check this book out to see all the amazing work and for inspiration.  It has never let me down!

You get to see lots of AMAZING concpet artists in their prime producing some of the coolest vehical, setting, character and creature art on the planet!  You have Doug ChiangTerryl Whitlatch and Iain McCaig killing it on every page.

In my opinion Doug Chiang proves why he is one of the greatest concept artists of all time.  Every page with Doug Chiang's work makes me want to see more and more!  Be sure to check it out!
