“As Yoda might put it: Forceful object, this is.”
—The New York Times
“Wait no more. Star Wars: The Blueprints, an oversized hardcover from Epic Ink, collects the best of the original blueprints created by the UK production art departments during the making of the six movies, taken straight from the Lucasfilm Archives and reproduced in striking high resolution ...The talent of these designers is on display on every page. Each blueprint is presented as an original work of art, and some bear the imperfections of rips and folds present on the original technical drawings ... Star Wars: The Blueprints is much more than a collection of documents. ”
—Star Wars Insider
“There has been no shortage of amazing Star Wars coffee table books and great memorabilia over the years, but the new book, Star Wars: The Blueprints, looks like one of the coolest inside looks at the franchise ever. 95% of the content has never been seen outside of the production.”
