the-art-of-ralph-mcquarrie-archivesDreams and Visions Press is running a kickstarter for a new Ralph McQuarrie book called The Art of Ralph McQuarrie: ARCHIVES. The goal is to take the out of print The Art of Ralph McQuarrie book, bring it back into print in a new format at a more affordable price point, and expand it by 1/3 with all new content. The 13” x 9.5”, 432 page hardcover book would span Ralph’s entire career (excluding Star Wars art).

Pledges start at $65 for those interested in getting a copy of the book (there are smaller levels that don’t include a copy of the book), however there’s only 100 spots open at that pledge level and they’re filling up fast. Afterwards, there will be 250 spots open at the $70 level. Once those fill up, you’ll have to pledge higher in order to get a copy.

For collectors interested in getting a fancier edition, they’re offering a clothbound numbered limited edition which starts at the $150 pledge level. There are also opportunities to get The Star Wars Art of Ralph McQuarrie (Japanese) book (which I have and is an excellent collection of Ralph McQuarrie’s Star Wars artwork), signed prints, canvas prints, etc.

Click here to check out the kickstarter and all the available pledge levels.

Ralph McQuarrie, the artist behind so many Star Wars concepts, has passed away today at the age of 82.  Besides his significant contribution to the Star Wars movies, McQuarrie was awarded an Academy Award for Visual Effects for the movie Cocoon.  A true space visionary, McQuarrie’s talents were used by NASA for the Apollo missions.

Honored for his talent during his life, Ralph McQuarrie will be missed.
