The Art of Film Fantasy Volume Two
We now have the second volume for The Art of Film series after three months. Imaginefx sure knows how to put out these books quickly.
I borrowed this book from Basheer Graphic Books, a bookstore in Singapore, for this review.
Just like the earlier book, this is a large format paperback artbook. This is almost like a magazine because the paper quality is similar to their ImagineFX magazines.
There are 178 pages of wonderful artworks either inspired by or created as concept art for the films. Some of the artists featured are John Howe, Alan Lee, Drew Struzan, Michael Kutsche, Brian Froud, Iain McCaig, Mark Molnar and many more.
There are 24 films featured. The selection seems pretty random. There's Star Wars which is already in the earlier book so I wonder why it's in this book again.
