For Christmas….The Star Wars Vault
Star Wars seems as big as ever… or it just the marketing? Today, we’re recommending for Christmas The Star Wars Vault: Thirty Years of Treasure from the Lucasfilm Archives. Hey, 1977 seems like yesterday to some of us.
This book is the official illustrated edition celebrating the 30th anniversary of George Lucas’ ground-breaking movie of an old story told with a new spin. It includes two CDs containing vintage radio ads, original cast interviews, commentary from Lucas, and even Carrie Fisher singing in the Star Wars Holiday Special. There are hundreds of photos and classic artwork too.
My favourite story from the movie is that Alec Guinness opted to take a cut of the profits rather than a salary. Of course, the movie earned him more money than he had earned in his entire career.
