Measuring 8"/20.5cmW X 10.25"/26cmH X 2.5"/6.25cmD this is a beautiful book.
It is a feast for the eyes on so many levels. My family and I gorge ourselves on this book. When you open the first page, an Imperial Walker rises from the depths of the snow covered Hoth. But that's not all, there are smaller pages within this big page, and they have pop-up pictures too. In fact, all the main pages have large pop-ups and smaller pages in the periphery with pop-ups within pop-ups! All the images are wonderful illustrations inspired by the famous movies.
Oh, and the text - this is not a re-telling of the story. It is a loving encyclopaedic rendition of the people, characters, animals, vehicles, places, events, geography, galaxy, politics and more - mainly from episodes 4, 5, & 6 - with a sprinkling of information from episodes 1, 2 & 3. The dedication on the back cover gives you an idea of the author's worshipful regard for the creators of Star Wars.
The paper engineering is truly remarkable. I really love how Han Solo is depicted. Every time I open his pages, he rises up, frozen in carbonite, unfolding as I stretch the paper. And that's one small piece of it. This whole book is truly wondrous work. I am blown away.
All the pop-ups work so well from the first page, all the way to the last page which is a true piece de resistance. The masking/unmasking of Darth Vader is compelling.Read more ›
