We’ve seen many of you wonder on social media if there would ever be a follow-up to 2009’s Star Trek: The Art of the Film book covering the making of the first Trek relaunch film — and today it looks like there’s not only going to be one sequel, but two new books on the way!
From publisher Titan Books, this fall will see the arrival of two new Kelvin Timeline publications, each chronicling a different aspect of the last three Star Trek films.

Star Trek Beyond: The Makeup Artistry of Joel Harlow takes on the enormous creature design and prosthetic makeup work that went into the most recent movie. This 256-page hardcover, written by author Joe Nazzaro, is due out October 3.
With the release of Star Trek Beyond in 2016, viewers were given a spectacular visual treat as a whole host of new aliens made their appearance for the first time in the rebooted franchise.
At the heart of the process of bringing these breathtaking intergalactic species to life was Academy Award-winning make-up artist Joel Harlow. Together with his team of amazingly talented creatives, Harlow set to work on creating aliens from over 50 different races for the film and documented the entire creative process for each one in exhaustive detail, from preliminary sketches to final make-up application.
Star Trek Beyond – The Makeup Artistry of Joel Harlow presents the extraordinary work done by Harlow and his crew. Featuring fascinating pencil sketches, stunning concept art and beautiful photography, this visually arresting book gives fans a unique in-depth look into the remarkable work that went into this immensely popular movie.
