4.0 out of 5 stars Art of Marvel Studios, Nov. 5 2014

This review is from: Art of Marvel Studios (Hardcover)
Length:: 1:03 Mins

This is a set of four art books from Marvel movies. Each of the books was sold separately, although you'll find that it probably cheapest to buy them together in this bundle. Also, the thick outer slip box is exclusive to this set, as is a folded poster that's included as well. I own the Hardcover Editions, and would recommend that version - although a bit more expensive, it's higher quality and will be easier to control.

These books are big and heavy, and the pages are full of vibrant colors. Photos are mostly high quality. The images used in the books includes conceptual artwork, paintings, and CG models. You will also find plenty of set photos and stills from the movies. There are also marketing/promotional materials, such as movie posters. One of the great things about these books is that there are a lot of alternate designs/art that did not make it into the movie - so you can see how the production design progressed over time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic collection of Marvel artwork, July 7 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Art of Marvel Studios (Hardcover)
This is a great collection of the Marvel films so far, packed with a ton of production and concept notes, and best part also lots and lots of concept artwork so you see how they visualized these classic characters for the modern cinema. There's an introduction in each book for each film going into the origins of the character, and guides you into how the filmmakers and designers began to make each film.

If you're a Marvel fan and especially if you're a fan of the films you should definitely pick up this set! Iron Man and Iron Man 2 books have been out of print for quite some time and now is a good chance to get in on this deal!
