Tall ships and Flying saucers.

*For a Friend: I was looking for a specific book that is made up of mainly pictures. I think it was illustrated by one of the Star Wars conceptual artists. the image from the book that has stuck in my mind was of a tall ship with a huge flying saucer right next to it. No clue what the title was but I really wanted a copy of it so any help finding it would be much appreciated. Thanks!
