. Here's a brief overview of the book:"Star Wars: The Blueprints showcases more than 250 of the original and unpublished technical drawings created for all six films of the Star Wars Saga. In this massive, oversized volume, all-new photographs of the blueprints are matched with supporting images of concept design, production models, film stills and new interviews with many of the films' original production designers, draftspeople, and set decorators. This revelatory look at the Star Wars universe was created in partnership with Lucasfilm, and authored by Lucasfilm executive editor, J. W. Rinzler."
