Oh. Uh, apparently the book is already on Amazon?

Star Wars Art: A Poster Collection (Poster Book): Featuring 20 Removable, Frameable Prints https://www.amazon.com/dp/141971581X/re ... 7ub0WNGTZ5

In the same format as Adventure Time: A Totally Math Poster Collection, this sturdy paperback houses 20 removable, frameable prints of the very best artwork from across the entire George Lucas–curated Star Wars Art series. Sixteen selections from Visions, Comics, Illustration, Concept, and Posters—including art by Jeffrey Brown, Philippe Druillet, Mike Mignola, Ralph McQuarrie, and Olly Moss—are joined by four newly commissioned artworks created specifically for this book by Max Dalton, Phantom City Creative, Tiny Kitten Teeth, and Jon Vermilyea. These high-quality, large-format, crease-free prints will be sure to transport Star Wars fans of all ages to a galaxy far, far away. . . .

Drew Struzan's art is some of the most iconic in modern movies, with more than 150 movie posters to his credit, including every "Star Wars ""and Indiana Jones" film. He lives in Pasadena, California. Roger Kastel's posters for "Jaws" and "The Empire Strikes Back" are considered among the most influential ever produced. He is a member of the Society of Illustrators. Kastel lives in White Plains, New York.

Olly's trio, and other Mondo artists from their 2010 series, are in this book which just came out as well.

Eng's is great but it reminds me of the old school Star Wars arcade cabinet and doesn't really offer a new take on the franchise.

Edit: read Eng not Englert, but my opinion stands

I think the Englert one is pretty meh. The Eng is kinda cool and while I don't really get the hype for the Moss, they did really bring that minimalist style to the forefront so I respect the fudge out of it. Obviously the Stout's are amazing. There are just so many damn SW prints out there... give some love to other movies already dangit!

Neither the Englert or the Eng SW offer anything new or original, but understand how some folks would enjoy the images on their walls.

The Olly set was/is really refreshing and remains a huge link for folks in the non-print or collecting world to find out about Mondo prints and the like. I would argue that this set and the Slater Goldfinger are the two biggest releases from Mondo on various levels in terms of culture awareness and saturation.
