The Art of Ralph McQuarrie: ARCHIVES Art Book

We couldn’t be more behind this project if we tried. The team at Dreams and Visions are working towards bringing us the ultimate Ralph McQuarrie book, looking at his stunning non-Star Wars works. And, as any Star Wars fan will tell you, anything by Ralph is more than deserving of your time and attention.

A 400+ page coffee table book featuring the largest collection of Ralph McQuarrie’s non-Star Wars art ever published.

Best known for his instrumental contributions to the making of the original Star Wars trilogy, Ralph McQuarrie has inspired several generations of film fans and artists. While much of his Star Wars artwork has been reproduced in numerous volumes over the years, his non-Star Wars work has previously only been available in The Art of Ralph McQuarrie, a limited edition that we (Dreams and Visions Press) published in 2007. That book is long out of print and now commands high prices on the secondary market.

With The Art of Ralph McQuarrie: ARCHIVES, we will bring back into print a career-spanning retrospective of Ralph McQuarrie’s non-Star Wars artwork. At 13” x 9.5”, this 432-page volume is not only offered at a more affordable price point than our original 2007 release, one third of the content is original to this edition. That’s hundreds of Ralph McQuarrie illustrations spanning all aspects of his body of work.

There are a large number of reward levels available for the project, which is aiming to raise the necessary $50,000 goal which will facilitate the production of this high, high quality project. Any and all pledges will be hugely appreciated and go towards bringing the magic of McQuarrie right to your door.
