The Art of Drew Struzan Book Review

About the Book: He is the favorite artist of both George Lucas and Steven Spielberg and the artist behind some of the most iconic images of our time… he is Drew Struzan.

Struzan has worked on the posters for the biggest films of the last 30 years. Blade Runner, Back to the Future, Jurassic Park and E.T: The Extraterrestrial to name but a few.

The first ever book to cover Struzan’s iconic poster artwork in depth, with the final artwork for each piece accompanied by background and anecdotes from an exclusive interview with the artist. With an introduction to Struzan’s philosophies and techniques, this stunning hardcover will include photos, sketches and reference material, plus closeups and a brief history of each poster featured, from Star Wars to The Goonies.



Our Take: I had no idea how prolific the art of Drew Struzan was in cinema before I saw this new art book.  In fact, I'll fully admit that I had never even heard his name!  I certainly won't be forgetting it anytime soon, now!  He has painted realistic pieces for films from Harry Potter to Back to the Future, Indiana Jones and Star Wars.  There were actually some paintings in there that I thought were real pictures of the characters!  The best part of this book is the sketches of the designs and layouts for most of the posters that he didn't end up using!  Its a great behind the scenes look.

This great hardcover collection of movie posters is a must have for any art fan and movie fan.  Its absolutely fantastic!
