Star Wars is epic. And we don’t just mean the films themselves but the sheer imagination, manpower, and hard work it took to bring them to life, as well. Now, you can go behind the scenes like never before, courtesy of Tashen’s XXL coffee table book, The Star Wars Archives.
Across a gargantuan 604 full-color pages, this magnificent hardcover tome, which covers 1977–1983, contains pretty much everything you could ever want to know about George Lucas’s original trilogy of space opera sci-fi films. From Ralph McQuarrie’s legendary concept art to actual script pages, storyboards, and onset photos — every corner of the production is covered beautifully and completely. Whether you’re a hardcore Starwoid, a science-fiction fanatic, or a big-time movie buff, this $200 chronicle is practically a compulsory purchase. And may the Force be with you.
