The Art of Ian Miller. Titan £24.99.
Reviewed by Peter Coleborn
When I first saw an Ian Miller illustration on a paperback cover, such as that gracing the Panther edition of At the Mountains of Madness, I fell in live with his artwork. Sadly, one doesn’t see his work much nowadays, on the book covers on the shelves in Waterstone’s or WH Smith.
Fortunately for us, Titan has collected over 300 pieces of Miller’s work, gathered from over the decades, and you can look at these in this sumptuous book. At least the games industry values Miller’s talents – he’s worked on Warhammer 40,000, Shadowrun and others.
Words can’t do justice to the illustrations herein. The pictures are a maze of detailed lines, intricate drawings, some with added colour, many in black and white. Take a look at the illustrations on this page and then Google his name and look at the images in awe.
This is a delicious portfolio – with commentary by Miller and Tom Whyte and with the added bonus of a Brian Sibley Foreword. If you like art, get this book.
