    One thought on “Star Trek: The Art of the Film”

    1. Awesome Christmas gift from my friend. Thanks X :D I can't believe I didn't know this book existed. I love the film and looks like I'm going to love the book, too :D

    2. Worth a quick perusal, but overall a disappointment compared to many other "art of the film" books out there. The book shows concept art and designs for all the major elements in Abram's film: spaceships, costumes, aliens, etc. As a mere picture book, it's a pleasant enough product, with high-quality artwork and large color spreads, but the content itself is somewhat lacking. The text really doesn't go into large detail into the extended thought process behind the evolution of the designs, usual [...]

    3. As interesting as it was, I didn't think it really met my expectations, nor the hype placed on this book. For the most part, the book gives a very brief overview of the general aspects in the behind the scenes making of this movie.

    4. Star Trek: The Art of the Film takes the reader inside the 2009 reboot of "Star Trek". One of the things that the film succeeded in doing was making the familiar seem new again. For example, the USS Enterprise kept its signature shape and other defining characteristics, but it received a number of redesigns (particularly the interior) that made it more more detailed when compared to the Enterprise in the older films. Another example is the costumes such as the Starfleet uniforms - which are clea [...]

    5. (More pictures available at parkablogs)It's weird this book came out months after the movie. The wait is over and I'm glad to say that this book is great.There's plenty of cool concept art in this 160-page hardcover art book published by Titan Books. There are technical sketches and paintings for spaceships, the set, character, costumes, gadgetry, weapons and creatures. Included also are discarded ideas and concepts.The amount of detail in the art is astonishing and texture is everywhere, 3D ren [...]

    6. I witnessed Trek from the very first episode aired (even before that I was riveted by Spock just from seeing his picture in the NBC new season promo booklet that came out the summer before the TV premier) so I was a little leery of a remake that might mess with what had become part of my life. The film, however, blew me away and revived my enthusiasm for all things Trek and especially the bold new directions the Trek story could now take. This art book on the making of the film was, naturally, a [...]

    7. I loved this book and am surprised to see some of the criticism leveled against it. This book is solely focused on the art of Star Trek and is not a behind the scenes or making of book (if you want that, check out the Blu-Ray of Star Trek which has a lot of great information in it). There is some nice information in the book about why things were designed the way they were and even some art from deleted scenes which is fascinating and that cannot be seen anywhere else. What struck me the most is [...]

    8. A really nice book full of colour photos about all the props and costumes used in this wonderful film. Very detailed images, lots of background info is there too if you are more interested in the technical and developmental aspects of the film.A must-have for any trekkie or fan of this film.

    9. I'll admit there were a bit too much spaceships and aliens for me (I don't know what I was expecting) but it was nonetheless a cool look at the behind-the-scenes of the movie. I loved the concept art for the advertising, I could have watched pages and pages of them! Mostly it all made me want to watch the movie again a lot.

    10. Part coffee table book and part behind-the-scenes glimpse at the creation of the film. blogcritics/books/article/

    11. This worship of Leonard Nimoy by the Star trek religionists is unhealthy. But this was a fine movie and this book is well produced.
