BRIEF SYNOPSIS: A collection of 80 retro-style Star Trek episode posters from Juan Ortiz, plus illustration notes and an interview with the artist.
PROS: Fantastic illustrations; 1960s retro style captures the era of the original series; variety keeps viewing experience interesting; illustrations more often than not reflect episode elements; illustration notes offer keen insight into the design process; just plain fun to look at.

BOTTOM LINE: A wonderful art book for Trek fans and art lovers.
