Star Wars is more than just a most popular movie franchise – it’s one of the most culturally significant entities ever to be created. That means film, television, merchandising, and (of course) print. Well now, the New York Times has taken it upon themselves to chronicle the entire Star Wars franchise in this coffee table book comprised entirely of published newspaper articles.
What we have here in this book – cleverly titled In a Galaxy Far, Far Away – is one of the most brilliantly executed mashups in cultural history. Done up in full color, this book shows the chronological tale of every time the famed newspaper wrote about Star Wars, from upcoming releases and their critiques, to how it inspired other industries (e.g. fashion, toys, etc.), to obituaries of the cast and crew, and so much more. Truly, if something happened in regards to George Lucas’ brainchild, it can be found in one of these articles. Each book is printed here in the USA on premium stock paper, features a leatherette cover, and comes with a magnifier. Pricing is set at $80 per book.
