"Brought the book for the art, got a book full of screenshots."
3 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

Was disappointed as most of the book is stills from the film, character profiles and poorly rendered, untextured CG models of the ships. The movie alluded to a treasure trove of pencil sketches that Adam had done, but those were washed over in 4–6 pages. The books design direction although starts of promising in the first two pages and takes a massive turn to cheap and rushed. Infact I enjoyed the design of the cover to contents page more than 90% of the whole book. If you are keen for a making of, great choice. Want to see more art from the film, save your money. Title should have “art” removed from it and just be The Making Of.

Description

Ridley Scott returns to the universe he created with Alien: Covenant, a new chapter in the groundbreaking Alien franchise. The crew of the colony ship Covenant discover what they think is an uncharted paradise, but it is actually a dark, dangerous world, whose sole inhabitant is the synthetic David, survivor of the doomed Prometheus expedition. Alien: Covenant - The Art of the Film reveals how the visual style of the film evolved, with breathtaking concept art accompanied by insight and interviews with key cast and crew. This official companion book explores all the major environments, creatures and technology that feature in this exciting new movie. It explores the intricate technology of the eponymous colony ship and its auxiliary vehicles, designs of the crew's uniforms and weaponry, artwork of key locations and breathtaking alien art imagery in amazing detail. Packed with fascinating sketches, blueprints, diagrams, full-color artwork, final film frames and behind-the-scenes shots from the set, Alien: Covenant - The Art of the Film is the ultimate literary companion to this highly anticipated movie event.
