Star Wars   The Blueprints | By J. W. Rinzler

The privilege as an executive editor of Lucasfilm Ltd., J. W. Rinzler has accessibility to a treasure trove of archives from all 6 Star Wars films, an abundance of forgotten images and storyboards filed away long ago. Not forgetting the most important part, to meet with the actual “creators” of this universe, like ILM model shop supervisor Lorne Peterson, an Academy Award winner who directed the modeling for all 6 Star Wars titles. With 2 other Academy Award winners, Dennis Muren and John Knoll, Rinzler complied Star Wars – The Blueprints, the most comprehensive book on this Sci-Fi classic. Coming in at a hefty 35 pounds, the 15″ by 18″ behemoth is a compilation of over 500 illustrations and photo. There is the preliminary draft for R2-D2, the cutaway of Millennium Falcon, to backdrop design at the film’s Tunisia location. Retails for $500, only 5,000 prints in English will be available for purchase with each numbered by hand, this is a collectable item no Star Wars fans should be without. via: UNCRATE
