ART BOOK REVIEW: Drew Struzan: Oeuvre - Drew Struzan and Dylan Struzan

Release Date: 14/10/11


Drew Struzan has created some of the most iconic movie poster images of the last 30 years, from Raiders of the Lost Ark to Star Wars: Episode III. This sumptuous hardcover edition, with an Introduction by George Lucas, features over 300 pieces of art, including all of Drew Struzans most iconic movie images, as well as other highlights of his career, from album, book and comic book covers, to stamps, trading cards and original works.


Whilst the name of Drew Struzan may not be instantly identifiable to a great many people, his artwork is iconic and as such this beautifully presented selection of pieces from his whole career to date makes this a title that is not only hard to put down but visually stunning.

Within are pieces from Star Wars to Indiana Jones, from cult films to personal choices. It’s a wonderful journey to explore and if you’re of a certain age a chance to wonder down memory lane. The only change that I’d like to have made to this would have been more from the artist himself about the inspiration behind the pieces and the choices but other than that it’s a title that stands on its own and one that is not just a coffee table book but one to be shared and enjoyed. Magical.

I'm glad to read about this one and will see if I can find it for my son-in-law who is also an artist. Might be his Christmas present if the price is not outrageous here.
