Review

"Szostak has worked with the Star Wars art departments for nearly a decade. He explores the filmmakers' visions and illuminates their creative process. The book features concept art, costume sketches, storyboards, and blueprints, and provides a deep dive into the development of the worlds, characters, and creatures – both old and new – of Solo." - IGN

"The Art of Solo: A Star Wars Story... offers unprecedented insight into the Lucasfilm art department's concept work over the course of Solos production." Gizmodo

"Author Phil Szostak worked directly with the team at Disney to uncover the most vital art and concept illustrations created in the lead-up to the film..." - Polygon

"Seeing art imagined for a film, whether it ended up being used or not, is an educational gift, a look into the process and genesis of locations and character development. It's why "Art of" books are special..." - Nerdist

"...The Art of Solo: A Star Wars Story by Phil Szostak... collects hundreds of pieces of concept art, sketches, and early computer renderings tracing the evolution of the film." - Yahoo! Entertainment

"With over 200 pages of beautiful images and insights from the creative crew behind Solo, you'd be hard-pressed to find something more valuable outside a train car full of coaxium." - SyFy Wire
