    (More pictures at parkablogs.com) This book is actually published by two publishers, Chronicle Books and Titan Books. I've seen both and they are the same except the price which depends on the country you're in. Chronicle Books is also releasing a US$120 limited edition as well but it's cheaper on Amazon. It comes with a white slipcase with 8 prints in an envelope inside the back cover. The Art of Star Wars: The Clone Wars is a pretty thick book at 272 pages.

It comes with a white slipcase with 8 prints in an envelope inside the back cover. The Art of Star Wars: The Clone Wars is a pretty thick book at 272 pages. It covers art for the movie as well as the TV series. The chapters are arranged according to the 22 episodes with the last chapter containing a sneak peak into Season II. We have character designs, ship designs, storyboards, environment design, lighting studies, some film stills and plenty of beat boards (scenes featuring major story points). The artistic style and feel here are very different from the usual Star Wars art books since this is for the animated series. The characters might be a little over stylized but that's why it's done in animation. A great deal of illustrations are digitally painted, to a point I feel there's an overdose and makes traditional pieces stand out by contrast. The detailed pieces are great because they have a hint of textures. The less detailed paintings look like a speed painting pieces with that blotchy feel. Curse the round-point tip brush! I guess I still like to see textures created by brush bristles. The pencil sketches and other non traditional medium pieces are delightful to look at because they are more organic and the style is a breath of fresh air compared to the digital paintings. Many of the sketches come with handwritten notes from the artists. Film stills are very few and there are almost no 3D models. This book really focuses on the pre-production concept art. All the drawings are captioned by the artists and production team. They talk about the concept and sometimes some production stories, such as rigging, modeling and texturing. The pencil drawings on General Grievous's original form before mechanical "improvements" are interesting to look at, and read since the artists couldn't decided whether he's should be a gorilla or cockroach. Overall, I consider this art book is worth the money because of its satisfactory volume, and art of course. My reservation is only to the insane amount of full coloured illustrations digitally created. It's a personal preference.

    The book covers the development art from the Clone Wars movie and the first season of the TV show. A short preview of the second season is also provided. This is a great art book because it has a lot of character concept art and world concept art. You get a good sense of how the series developed. It's particularly interesting to see the early development of the series.

It's particularly interesting to see the early development of the series. It was originally going to be a show about a ragtag bunch of smugglers accompanied by a Jedi and a padawan, which as we know now is the basic premise of the Rebels show we have now. If you're a Star Wars fan, get a copy of this before it becomes too hard to find.

    I wish this covered the later seasons of the show as well, but the look into the early development of this animated classic was super interesting.

    We found a copy of this at forbidden planet reduced from £100 to £19.99! Definitely a bargain at that price! I hadn't even noticed that there were prints at the back of the book until I saw someone here mention it. At that price it was worth it for the prints alone! I am a huge fan of the Clone Wars, it is without a doubt my favourite Star Wars. It has brilliant character development, intelligent stories, and a tragic outlook.

This book only featured art from the first season but still worth getting. It had lots of fantastic character sketches, development ideas, as well as beautiful settings. Very highly recommended.

    Ok I found myself spending some time sitting around waiting for a delivery so I did my usual thing of raiding the book cases (or in my cases stacks of books littering the floor) and found this - a book I picked up on sale in London some time ago.

The book has many things going in its favour - in that it has not only lots of production shots but also many prototype drawings and technical test pieces - it was endorsed and support by the great Ralph MacQuarrie (the main artists and creator of some the most iconic images from the first three films, episodes IV to VI). The only down side is that this book was produced at the end of the first series as it was preparing for series 2. Now as the firth has ended and the sixth is about to air and the series draws to a close you wonder what other amazing material is out there - potentially to be lost as the team are disbanded in preparation for the up and coming episode VII. That all said for anyone who appreciates these sorts of sort of art work then this is one to add to the list.

    When I first found out about The Clone Wars series, I wasn't too excited about it. The art style didn't really appeal to me, and after Attack of the Clones I didn't find that whole time period to be interesting. I gave it a try, and to my surprise it started to grow on me. The show is well done and the art really grew on me. This book has plenty of concept art, and storyboards and behind the scenes stuff that was fun to see.
