Sci-Fi Art: A Graphic History traces the evolution of this popular art form from the earliest illustrations of Jules Verne and H.G. Wells through the classic cover art of pulp magazines from the 1920s and 30s, to graphic novels in the 60s and 70s, and right up to contemporary film posters, movies, and television shows.
Chapters bring to light the most groundbreaking and talked about sci-fi art in media ranging from comic books, movies, and TV programs to art, posters, toys, literature, collectibles, board games and video games. Sci-Fi Art is a comprehensive compilation that reveals fascinating background information, anecdotes, ideas, and inspirations relied on by iconic artists from Chris Foss, Jim Burns, and David Mattingly to Moebius, Albert Robida, and Frank Kelly Freas. Illuminating analyses of these sci-fi masters' use of technique, tools, materials, and media are also featured.
All images are richly illustrated and seemingly three-dimensional making Sci-Fi Art the perfect nostalgia book for sci-fi fans and collectors, as well as an inspiring resource for art lovers, designers, illustrators, writers and creative minds.
