Now you too can own your piece of Star Wars
history. The Star Wars Vault
is a 128-page, thirty year journey thru the archives of Lucasfilm. Starting with pre-production for Star Wars
, the Vault makes use of hundreds of pictures along with text that describes the historical context for the images presented. But that's not all.
Authors Steve Sansweet and Pete Vilmur have collected reproductions of dozens of items; from blueprints to film strips, hand written notes to iron on transfers, punch-out landspeeders to a Japanese woodblock camcorder ad. From Star Wars
to Revenge of the Sith
, plus items from 'the dark years', Star Wars Celebrations, the expanded universe — all thrity years are represented here.
But that's still not all. Two compact discs present some of the more rare and odd aural items to be produced under the Star Wars
banner. Like Carrie Fisher's Holiday Special
lifeday song. I thought George wanted that destroyed!
Since you can't collect every collectible or item that talks about Star Wars
—well I mean, you can try—this book is the next best thing. The $85 hardcover from HarperCollins comes in a lovely slipcase, and includes the aforementioned 2 CDs, and over 50 pull out items.Also, don't forget
