The book is a nice book for Star Wars fans, but be forewarned. The reviews you see here from 2011 are clearly reviews for the larger and more sought after Limited Edition version that retailed for $500. This 2013 issue is a smaller scale version of that release. Other than the huge differences in size and weight, this 2013 version is not printed in the same quality of ink as the Limited Edition, nor does it have the same level of detail in the bindings and front and back covers. Another big difference is that this version does not come with a custom-dyed cloth material case and certificate of authenticity like the Limited Edition. I have a friend that has the pricier Limited Edition, and it's massive. About 30 pounds. This smaller version is still a good book for it's price point.

++++ Texte fait par Artbook passion ( plus d'info et d'images sur mon blog Artbbok Passion, visitez mon profile pour un lien vers mon blog ) ++++

Je vais vous présenter un livre sur Star Wars, encore un me direz-vous! Et là je dis STOP! Je ne vous présente pas un livre sur Star Wars, mais Le Livre Star Wars, un livre Unique.
Unique par ses caractéristique : Une taille et un poids gargantuesque, imaginez, près de 70 cm de long pour 40 de large et un poids de 12 KG
Unique par son contenu : la reproduction à l'identique de 250 blueprints (dessins de conception) jamais publié avec une telle qualité et plus de 500 photos pour la plus part inédites et introuvables ailleurs.
Unique par sa qualité : un coffret de protection superbe, un couverture sobre et classieuse, des pages épaisses et glacées, une impressions des photos est des textes exemplaires, sans défaut et mettant parfaitement le tout en valeur.
Unique de part son prix hélas qui en rebutera plus d'un.

Unique, tout simplement, parce que nous n'avons pas devant nous un simple livre, mais un objet de collection, nous offrant un partie de l'histoire Star Wars, par le biais de documents jalousement gardés dans les archives de George Lucas. Il nous donne une autre vision du film plus intime sur l'envers du décors , sur ceux souvent oublié qui nous ont permis de rêver grâce à des décors superbes et magnifiques, en permettant de donner vie à cette univers que nous aimons tant.

The box came to my door and it was almost half the doorway in size. I thought the UPS guy had the wrong apartment, and then I saw the Star Wars logo on it and realized it was this.

I opened up the box and for all the art books, rare or not, that I have, I have never stumbled on such a great quality build and presentation. Its ridiculous (just like the price). I went through the book quite fast just to get a feel for it and the more I flipped page after page the more I felt like a 5 year old on Christmas day.

The best part of the experience I dare say is the sheer size. I have two 24 inch monitors on my computer. The book is basically putting both of those on top of each other. If you look at the numbers that dictate its size, you don't quite grasp its hugeness until you bump into it in real life.

The content is indeed filled with never seen before stuff, and yes its still Star Wars with the same ships and sets, but the amount of information in both text and the set pictures/blueprints is staggering. A good thing, sometimes overlooked, is the font size is actually properly sized for such a behemoth and it doesn't cause you to lose track or have to squint and get headaches.

This however is not a book you read in bed unless your wife is cool with sleeping on the couch that night. Also hard to place on a desk that has any sort of computer gear on it. No, this baby requires space. Think of it as trying to park a Millennium Falcon into a regular car's parking space. Same issue. That's also a good point to end this review on.

With this book you get what you pay for (something I hugely doubted before I got my hands on it) and to that end, if other very nice art books were the equivalent of a nice car, this thing is a freaking space ship.

Covers sets and ships, mostly of the original trilogy, with plenty of details. Also contains exclusive pictures and stories about the development.
