Discover the incredible art behind Ghost in the Shell, the much-anticipated sci-fi thriller starring Scarlett Johansson.
Discover the incredible artwork behind the creation of Ghost in the Shell, the much-anticipated live-action film that brings to life the adventures of cybernetic detective Major Mira Killian and her crack cyberterrorism squad, Section 9. Directed by Rupert Sanders and starring Scarlett Johansson as the Major, the film required the creation of a unique futuristic world where the vast majority of the population has had their bodies augmented with cybernetic enhancements. Working with the award-winning Weta Workshop, Sanders and his team designed every aspect of this startling new world, from cityscapes filled with holograms the size of skyscrapers to robotic geishas, futuristic weaponry, and bionic limbs. This deluxe book reveals the full creative journey behind Ghost in the Shell through interviews with the cast and crew and a wealth of incredible never-before-seen art that showcases the amazing vision that brought the film to the screen.

The book is large 9" by almost 13" and the hardcover is raised and contoured around the robo-geisha face its pretty impressive. Opening up, the paper is heavy stock with full page art by many of today's great concept artists like Ash Thorp and Maciej Kuciara. There is just the right balance of text and art in my opinion I really enjoyed the info they provided. Looking forward to seeing what Rupert Sanders pulls off for the film its clear he and the team had their heads in the right place after going through this book a few times. I would not hesitate to buy this book even if you are just a fan of the manga or anime series.
The art book is a gorgeous piece of work, right from the outside cover. The front is contoured along the join lines of the robot geisha's face, which lends it a elevated quality before it's even opened. Fortunately, that level of quality is maintained even inside the book. The pages lay out just about every aspect of the movie, from character design to world building. There are some really great deep dives into design decisions, taking the reader through the visual brainstorming process. We see storyboarding layouts for aspects of the physical settings, various decorative approaches for characters like the robotic geishas, and other planning pieces along with fully realized elements. The book covers virtually all aspects of the process.
Whether you like the movie or not, this is a fantastic art book to have. The content can be appreciated outside of the finished product, which indicates the level of talent involved.
