Book Review of The Art of Mad Max Fury Road, by Abbie Bernstein

Published by Titan Books in 2015

Stars: 4

I am not a professional art critic, but that is okay, because there is not much to criticize in this artistic exploration into the new Mad Max movie, Fury Road. What I do have going for me is a long lived appreciation for the Mad Max movies, or at least the first two. But enough about me, let’s talk about this book of dystopian road warrior art.

George Miller spearheaded making the movie happen and also writes a great introduction to this work. The author Abbie Bernstein takes care of the rest of the prose and does an excellent job of doing so. They help set a stage and provide information that completes what the artwork delivers.

Mad Max Sky

The book is huge on multiple levels. The pages are wide and deep and artwork explodes from every page. Old issues of Heavy Metal come to mind as the reader is overloaded with imagines. I almost want to tear a few pages out and hang them on my wall, but that could be a blasphemy to tarnish such a work. Hey, my kids might want to see this one day.

Mad Max Ride

Vehicles, mad men, and carnage attack the mind from these pages. Not many downsides here. Either you like these artistic tributes to creative products or they are not your thing. If you like apocalypse art or Mad Max, you will get a huge kick out of this. Enjoy the pages and maybe scan a few for your G+ page, but do not tell them I told you to do it.
