    Well I guess I suppose I should start off the new year with adding a few books I have been slowly (painfully slowly) reading through the holidays. So here is the first one and its a monster. Why well its actually 4 complete books in a solid slipcase. Its definitely a two hand affair. Now apart from being rather smug over how much I ended paying for it the box set is a real eye catcher especially nestled in with all the other books I have - it is Impressive. But what of the books themselves - wel Well I guess I suppose I should start off the new year with adding a few books I have been slowly (painfully slowly) reading through the holidays. So here is the first one and its a monster. Why well its actually 4 complete books in a solid slipcase. Its definitely a two hand affair. Now apart from being rather smug over how much I ended paying for it the box set is a real eye catcher especially nestled in with all the other books I have - it is Impressive. But what of the books themselves - well in the early days of the Marvel movies I suspect the marketeers weren't quite sure what they had there and as such didnt really promote or record as much as they could do (there is the argument that they have gone the other way and now have mastered the art of bleeding the last drop of interest out of the latest film) - the result was that there is so much material here that never really saw the light of day. And that is really what caught my eye - the amount of concept and production images present here for all 4 films is astounding and yes reinforced my opinion that I seriously wish I could be as creative as the people in these books. So would I recommend these books oh yes - partly for the closest fanboy who really enjoyed these movies (sorry I have to still catch up with the latest instalments, come on books come first after all) and the fact that there is just some amazing art in these books that really get the imagination fired up, almost to the point where you wonder how much more they could have squeezed in to these films. Only one word of advice - get some sturdy book shelves

    5 🌟 Liked how they fit Tony, Thor, and Steve's origin stories into one slipcase. All of them were very enjoyable reads. Looking forward to reading about how the other Marvel movies were designed. Sad that they didn't do a book for the Hulk. 5 🌟 Liked how they fit Tony, Thor, and Steve's origin stories into one slipcase. All of them were very enjoyable reads.

    After ordering The Marvel Phase 1 DVD set, Amazon popped up “The Art of Avengers” as a recommendation. I don’t usually buy art books, but I truly loved the film and wanted more of the Marvel experience. I loved it. It was a gorgeous, well-done book with brilliant photos and artwork, and a good bit of background information. So, I decided to look for other Marvel art books.

It was a gorgeous, well-done book with brilliant photos and artwork, and a good bit of background information. So, I decided to look for other Marvel art books. Thankfully, this was available for pre-order, so I didn’t have to worry about missing out on the now out-of-print Iron Man books. This set includes: The Art of Iron Man, the Art of Iron Man 2, The Art of Thor and the Art of Captain America. All four hardcover books come in a slipcase, without dust jackets. It also includes a limited edition poster of the slipcase cover art. THE ART OF IRON MAN. I think this is easily the best book of the set (though none are as good as the Avengers book). It goes seriously in depth into the design of the suit, including CGI modeling, testing the physics of how it would work, and more. There is also a lot of attention spent on Tony’s mansion and workshop. The best part is how the book clearly shows the evolution of the film from the artists’ renderings/designs, to models, to fully realized props. There is a lot of concept design, but also many photos & screen shots to act as counterpoint to them. The forward and background information on the character is brilliant, and Jon Favreau’s enthusiasm for the character is noticeable. My only minor criticism is that sometimes the text got too close to the spine and was difficult to read. 4.5 Stars. THE ART OF IRON MAN 2. Despite a feeling of redundancy (the previous book already spent a huge amount of time on suit design), this book was also very good. A good deal of it concerns the suits, of course, but the suitcase suit and War Machine provide enough new material that it doesn’t feel like a retread. The text was more important here as the editor made an effort to tie into the comics, and what was pulled from them in the development of the film. I found the bits about Justin Hammer particularly interesting, since I didn’t feel the character added much to the film. This book spent more time on other character designs, since we have new ones like Black Widow and Nick Fury. Overall, this was nearly as good as the art book for IM. 4 stars. THE ART OF THOR. I was most excited to see this art book, and ended up being hugely disappointed. This was the weakest book in the set – by far. Odd as it sounds, I think what was missing from this art book was more text. There wasn’t enough context for the artwork, and how and why it was used. The first part of the book, the design of Thor himself, was fine. There is a lot of concept art for how his costume could look, pictures of Chris Hemsworth through the creation phase, information on the design of Mjolnir, and more. Still, there wasn’t enough contrast vis a vis the comics. And, much less time is spent on Loki (who has three different costumes to Thor’s one), and why they made the choices they did for him. There are many renderings of possible looks for him, but not why they chose some over others. And, they never explain the need for three. The other characters get uneven and much less than deserved coverage of their costume designs in favor of having pages, and pages, and pages and still more pages of over-enlarged, near-abstract landscapes for Jotunheim. Yes, the ice planet. How many ways can you depict ice? The book spent almost as much time on Jotunheim as on Asgard. And few of the paintings had much detail. More time is spent on the frost giants than the Warriors 3 who have actual costumes and more screen time! Readers get a few pages on the armory, which would have been very interesting with more information on the various weapons/artifacts within it (like the Infinity Gauntlet). With the film taking place literally on another world, this art book should have been the best of the set. I’m not sure if it was the artists on the film, or the editor, but it was a big letdown. 2.5 stars. THE ART OF CAPTAIN AMERICA. This book is actually better than The Art of Iron Man because it doesn’t have the issue with the text creeping into the spine. Otherwise, the two books each display a perfect balance of context, imagery and design. Unlike Thor, this includes plenty of context and background information for the character, the design and how they drew inspiration from the comics. Just about every character design is covered, from Cap and Red Skull, to Peggy, the Hydra soldiers, and the Howling Commandos. The layout of the book is also exceptional. Concept art is showcased against actual film shots, and the resolution is reflected in appropriately sized images. Like in Iron Man, there are also a lot of weapon and vehicle designs included. 5 stars. All four books conclude with a section on storyboards, and a section on how they marketed each film, with emphasis on one-shot posters. I would love to see a book devoted solely to the marketing for all the Marvel films, as these short chapters were very interesting and a great way to conclude each book. Overall, this set is definitely worth the purchase, and the price is reasonable considering each individual book had a retail of $50 without a slipcase. For those reluctant to spend so much, a paperback set will be coming. Highly recommended.

    This box contains four books (The Art of Iron Man, Iron Man: The Art of Iron Man 2, Thor: The Art of Thor the Movie, Captain America: The Art of Captain America - The First Avenger) that chronicle the design and artist work put into movies leading up to Marvel's The Avengers (Avengers: The Art of Marvel's The Avengers).

While there may not be all that much "secret" information on the films and stories themselves, the pages feature some stunning art and creativity, giving insight into how sets/worlds/time-periods were created and what kind of aspects needed to be focused on to give the latest Marvel films a realistic yet true-to-comics look. A nice set, definitely worth a look for anyone who's interested in these films and wants to get an extra look at how they were brought to life - but that's pretty much all they contain, so if you're yearning for extra information on the stories themselves, this might not be the right place to look. A definite plus are some unique photos, concept art and poster shots that never made it to big screen or the public.

    For photos/video of this book, please visit my blog movieartbook.com This is a set of four art books from Marvel movies. Each of the books was sold separately, although you'll find that it probably cheapest to buy them together in this bundle. Also, the thick outer slip box is exclusive to this set, as is a folded poster that's included as well. I own the Hardcover Editions, and would recommend that version - although a bit more expensive, it's higher quality and will be easier to control.

Also, the thick outer slip box is exclusive to this set, as is a folded poster that's included as well. I own the Hardcover Editions, and would recommend that version - although a bit more expensive, it's higher quality and will be easier to control. These books are big and heavy, and the pages are full of vibrant colors. Photos are mostly high quality. The images used in the books includes conceptual artwork, paintings, and CG models. You will also find plenty of set photos and stills from the movies. There are also marketing/promotional materials, such as movie posters. One of the great things about these books is that there are a lot of alternate designs/art that did not make it into the movie - so you can see how the production design progressed over time. ***** Below is a detailed list of the imagery you'll find in the books: IRON MAN - Iron Man suit concept art - Photos of the Iron Man helmet and other pieces of armor - Iron Monger concept art - Jarvis/HUD - Tony's Workshop & Malibu Home - Stark's cars/jet - Storyboards from various sequences in the movie IRON MAN 2 - Stark's Hall of Armor - The suitcase suit progression - Stark Expo concept art/logo designs - Whiplash concept art - Hammer Industries weapons - Army, Navy, Marine drones - Black Widow & Nick Fury costume designs - Storyboards of Stark Expo drone attack sequence - Stark's Monaco car and racing suit. THOR - Thor comic book to screen comparisons - Costume designs for Thor, Loki, Odin, etc. - Dozens of various designs for Thor's hammer - Asgard city and technology concept artwork - The Destroyer design - Jotunheim landscapes and creatures - Frost Giants and their weapons - Theatrical Movie Poster designs CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE FIRST AVENGER - Captain America comic book art - Costume sketches for Cap, Peggy Carter, Howard Stark, etc. - Dozens of various designs for Cap's Shield - Details of Steve Rogers transformation - Red Skull design concepts - Hydra weapons, including cosmic cube - Hydra vehicles - tanks, train, airship, etc. - Theatrical movie poster designs ***** This set includes every art book from Marvel's Phase One, except for "The Avengers". Unfortunately, there was never an art book made for "The Incredible Hulk" (although I'd love to see one).
