 From the publisher:

"What is Shadowline? It is the place where things meet: light and shadows, hope and despair, good and evil. It is, to me, the most interesting place to hunt for stories." So begins this stunningly realized and beautifully rendered retrospective showcasing work from master storyteller and artist Iain McCaig.

McCaig is best known for his work as a principal designer on the three Star Wars prequels, including the iconic characters Queen Amidala and Darth Maul, as well as his work on many major motion pictures, television, and video games. His touch can be seen in such acclaimed films as Terminator 2, Hook, Francis Ford Coppola's Dracula, Interview with a Vampire, and Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire.

Shadowline presents a stunning portfolio of more than two decades of McCaig's masterful concept designs and storyboards, cover art and illustrations, as well as his private sketchbooks and personal paintings, all woven together within the confines of an engrossing, otherworldly journey to his creative realm: Shadowline.

ICONIC CHARACTERS: Discover visionary designs for Queen Amidala, Darth Maul, and other beloved characters across film and pop culture

PRIVATE SKETCHBOOKS: More than a retrospective of McCaig's film work, Shadowline contains dozens of images from the artist's personal archive
