Book Description:
When the first Star Wars film was screened in 1977 it changed the face of intelligent adventure blockbusters forever and defined the cinematic experience of a whole generation of moviegoers. The industry that followed - two sequels, three prequels, an entire book publishing program, dedicated magazines and comic books; toys and figurines, plus sell-out conventions where fans could meet the actors, writers and film-makers - turned the Star Wars phenomenon into the most influential and commercially successful entertainment franchise of its kind; one, moreover, which is still going strong after 30 extraordinary years. Now, to commemorate its thirtieth anniversary year, comes the ultimate Star Wars collectible keepsake book. In these lavishly produced and designed full colour pages fans will find a treasure trove of never-before-seen letters, photographs and other material connected with the films each of which has been lovingly reproduced from the originals.
Among the book's features are:
  • The special questionnaire for the first and only test screening of the original Star Wars and the invitation to attend it 
  • George Lucas' hand-written treatment for The Empire Strikes Back 
  • Lucasfilm Christmas cards 
  • Iron-on T-shirt transfer 
  • The very first concept sketch drawn for Star Wars 
  • Blueprints of Star Wars vehicles and sets 
  • Original hand-written directions for ground-breaking special effects
