De tous les star wars , mon préféré est sans nul doute l'empire contre attaque, non pas pour le traditionnel : je suis ton père!! Mais plutôt pour la bataille de Hoth avec les AT-AT. C'est donc avec un grand plaisir que je vais vous parler du art of star wars de cet épisode.
Cet artbook est une mine d'information sur tout le travail effectué sur ce film. Ça va des commentaire écris, illustrations, dessins de conceptions, plan mécaniques des vaisseau et des lieux. Bref, tout ce que vous avez voulu savoir sur ce film est dans ce livre.
Fan de star wars, de boba fett ou tout simplement curieux, je vous conseil vivement cet artbook, il y a tellement de choses dedans que je ne serais quoi vous dire de plus sinon, Lecteur de cet review, je suis ton père!!! :)
Sur mon blog j'explique aussi toutes les versions du livre disponibles.
This book is filled with color photos, but the text that goes with the pictures hasn't improved much. A good thing about this book, is the artwork is divided up into sections: HOTH, STAR DESTROYER, ASTEROID FIELD, DAGOBAH, BESPIN, REBEL CRUISER, and at the beginning of each section is about one and a half pages of text that describes how the "section" was done for the movie.
The "features" of the book such as the technique for the Imperial Walkers and Tauntauns to make them move, was included in the paragraphs at the beginning of each section, but really was poorly written. And the evolution of Yoda wasn't even written in text at all. All it consisted of was pages of drawings that looked different.
The pictures are, as always, magnificent, and included photographs, drawings, sketches, paintings, matte paintings, and blueprints, although the blueprints are on two pages, and a portion of them disappear where the two pages meet. But the rest is great, and it is so amazing to see how real the matte paintings look!
All four and a half stars are for the great pictures, organization, and text, but the missing half star is due to the lack of text. The lack of text is the real downfall, but since the pictures are great, I don't regret getting it. Especially since this is the only ART OF THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK book there is.
Oh well. For what the book does offer it is still great. I'd trade it in gladly for a version that included the script.
