This is an enormous hardcover book. There are 344 pages instead of the 320 listed on Amazon. The book is encased in a sturdy cardboard casing with a cut out of Darth Vadar — of course! It is very well bind, and the paper stock is great.
This mammoth book is a compilation of all the materials used in the movies. These materials include — huge breath in — hundreds of behind the scenes photos, film stills, models of ships, character designs, miniatures, character models, robots, creatures, props, costumes — another long breath in — vehicles, planets, plot lines and anything you can think of.
Only Episode I, II and III are included in this book. Also included is the expanded universe, which are the novels, comics and Clone Wars animation.
The photos included show a lot of detail on the subject. Multiple shots are often taken from each side, especially so for vehicles. Every photo is captioned and explained. There is very little concept art, but for that you have to get the art-of series of books.
It's the most comprehensive book detailing everything about everything in a movie.
The price might be hefty, but it is well worth it for any Star Wars fan.
