I remember watching this “old” Star Trek TV series as a kid. “Trek” didn’t really resonate with me until Star Trek: The Next Generation, Deep Space Nine and Voyager TV series. Over time I went back to watch this original Star Trek series and films with the original cast. This year mark the 50th anniversary of the original Star Trek TV series and this poster size hardbound title Star Trek 50 Artists 50 Years celebrates the iconic sci-fi TV program.
Famous fans and artists like Leonard Nimoy, Mayim Bialik, Stanley Chow, Anna-Maria Jung and Des Taylor all put their time in contributing to this amazing celebration. The 50 artists selected all coming from various art mediums made unique Star Trek posters, illustrations, photos, sculptures, textiles and more for this 50th Anniversary. Along with the art piece, each artist is interviewed about their Star Trek art creation, inspirations from the TV program and other Star Trek related things.
This Holiday season, if you have a “Trekkie” fanatic, this book will do the trick. I had a smile of my face looking at the pages of artwork and reading the Star Trek insights. Star Trek 50 Artists 50 Years will make a wonderful gift for Star Trek fanatics.
