This review is updated to reflect some comments made by the publisher in the Amazon comments section. This is the updated edition of the edition Drew Struzan: The publisher Titan Books considers it a brand new edition, with lots of additional and up-to-date material, plus text by Dylan Struzan – Drew’s wife.
Drea is described as ‘a sumptuous companion volume to The Art of Drew Struzan’. The Movie Posters of Drew Struzan is a page hardcover selection of movie posters up to The Art of Drew Struzan is the page hardcover selection of works featuring lots of accompanying sketches together with his finished drawings, complete with commentary on his thoughts and stories behind each piece.
Oeuvre is collection of works representing his career, up to Much of what you see here is duplicated in The Movie Posters of Drew Struzan so oeuvge no point getting that book, especially when the price different is small. Even though there is duplication in The Art of Drew Struzan as well, that book is still worth getting because of his sketches and if you want to read about his stfuzan process.
The amount of work he created is immense and this book is a tribute to his mastery. It’s a page large format sfruzan with illustrations all printed at full page on good paper. You’re getting close to illustrations.
This is an amazing value for money. His familiar works for movie posters are all inside, arranged into the type of work namely, music, movies, commercial and personal. The bulk of work appears in the movie section, of course. You’ll get the see familiar works he did for Star WarsBack to the FutureIndiana Jonesand many of the lesser known ones. His portfolio is awe-inspiring. Some of this have appeared in The Art of Drew Struzan but included here to make this collection complete.
So if you actually have the The Art of Drew Struzan and the Oeuvrethere’s no need to get this edition because you already have all the art. The personal pieces included are oeuvvre figure drawings and paintings oeurve are done in a non-Drew Struzan style, compared to his movie art, or course. The captions for the illustrations appear at the back of the oeeuvre, arranged by page order, describing the medium and what the art was for.
I wish there was another index listing his work alphabetically because sometimes it hard to find a particular title from those plus ouvre. The alphabetically arranged copyright index at the end could do with those page numbers. Oeuvre is the definite collection of Drew Struzan. If you have to get just one, this is it.
This book was borrowed from Basheer Graphic Books for review purposes. You can order the book from them. Check with Basheer on Facebook or visit their website. Here are direct links to the book: This is definetly on my list. Never really heard of Drew Struzan until you introduced me to his work Parka.
Since you seem to love photo realistic art like most of us do. By any chance will you be reviewing Alex Ross’ new art book in December? Don’t really know much about it, but Amazon.
Some things to point out, though. Do you actually own the edition? The texts were written by different authors; this print has Drew’s wife as the commenter. Lastly, the oeuvre and the “Art of Drew Struzan” together do not contain all the art of the oeuvre. Some additional things that could be spotted were oevure “Walking Dead” and “Cowboys and Aliens” posters, his Indy Disneyland stuff, Lord of the Rings and much of the personal work is previously unseen or at least struzzan. Amazon oeivre the first edition listed as 10 by 14 inches.
This edition is slightly larger than 9 by 12 inches. I have the previous book, and was interested in getting this, but if the difference is small content-wiseI’m reconsidering.
