Amazing book cover art from Bob Pepper.

Moleskine has teamed up with award-winning illustrator Carlo Stanga to introduce their first-ever coloring book for adults.

The company has hopped onto the adult coloring book train by bringing their legendary Moleskine craftsmanship to a new, playful genre with ‘The Wandering City Coloring Book’. It boasts 50 elaborate, imaginative ink cityscapes that include scenes of busy squares, subway and train stations, parks, skyscrapers and many more illustrations.

The 96-page coloring book is printed on a sturdy paper stock, which grants readers the chance to adorn the pages with colored pencils, crayons, markes and pastels. Stanga, who is also an architect, brilliantly blends styles from around the world to create intricate urban labyrinths of plants, animals, human faces and buildings. (via Design TAXI)

Ralph Angus McQuarrie was an American conceptual designer and illustrator. Impressed with his work, director George Lucas met with him to discuss his plans for a space-fantasy film. Several years later, in 1975, Lucas commissioned McQuarrie to illustrate several scenes from the script of the film, Star Wars. McQuarrie designed many of the film’s characters, including Darth Vader,Chewbacca, R2-D2 and C-3PO and drew many concepts for the film’s sets.It was McQuarrie who suggested that Vader wear a breathing apparatus.

Ralph Steadman (born 15 May 1936) is a British cartoonist best known for his work with American journalist/author Hunter S. Thompson. Steadman had a long partnership with Hunter S. Thompson, drawing pictures for several of his articles and books. He accompanied Thompson to the Kentucky Derby for an article for the magazine Scanlan’s, to the Honolulu Marathon for the magazine Running, and illustrated both Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas and Fear and Loathing on the Campaign Trail ’72. Much of Steadman’s artwork revolves around Raoul Duke-style caricatures of Thompson: bucket hats, cigarette holder and aviator sunglasses. (via Wikipedia)
