If you’re anything like me, you love a good coffee table book. Well, there are a few exciting new Star Wars books on the horizon – and they’d be right at home on your own coffee table!
First up, we have ‘The Making of Star Wars: Return of the Jedi’ by J.W. Rinzler (forward by Brad Bird). This is the final installment in a trio of book tributes that looked back on the making of the Original Trilogy. It’s sure to be a fitting 30th Anniversary celebration of all things Jedi!
It is currently available for pre-order with a release date of October 1st.
Next, we have ‘Star Wars Art: Concept’ by LucasFilm Ltd. This is a compilation of all the conceptual art that inspired the look of Star Wars – Original Trilogy, Prequel Trilogy, video games, TV shows, etc. Featured artists include Joe Johnston, Iain McCaig, Ryan Church, Doug Chiang, Erik Tiemens… and the legendary Ralph McQuarrie.
Two versions are available for pre-order. There is a regular hardcover edition and a limited edition. The limited edition includes five hand signed giclee prints, extra pages of concept art, and a cloth bound case. Both have a released date of October 15th.
Finally, there is a reprinting of ‘Star Wars: Frames’ by George Lucas. This book focuses on the photography and design of the Saga as a whole. This reprinting should be nice for those who couldn’t afford the very pricey edition that came out a few years ago.
It is also available for pre-order and has a release date of October 29th.
Gift giving season will be here before you know it, and any one of these books (or all of them!) would make excellent gifts for that special geek in your life – especially if that geek is you!Powered by Sidelines
