In case you aren’t familiar with the work of Ralph McQuarrie, he is the visionary concept artist responsible for helping shape the visual style of the entire Star Wars franchise. In fact, alongside George Lucas himself, Mr. McQuarrie designed the look for Darth Vader, C-3PO, and R2-D2. His artwork was even used on some of the early film posters.

As it turns out, you can actually get your hands on his entire collected works from the groundbreaking sci-fi film series in these beautiful, full color, hardbound art books. And the pages aren’t relegated solely to his famous illustrations, as the tomes are also filled with hundreds of unreleased images, unpublished interviews, and recollections from his colleagues and friends. If you’re a fan of Star Wars, the film industry, or science fiction works of art, these books – which you can get for just $170 – are an absolute must have. [Purchase]
