Star Wars: The Blueprints brings together, for the first time, the original blueprints created for the filming of the Star Wars Saga. Drawn from deep within the Lucasfilm Archives and combined with exhaustive and insightful commentary from best-selling author J. W. Rinzler, the collection maps in precise, vivid, and intricate detail the very genesis of the most enduring and beloved story ever to appear onscreen.

Star Wars: The Blueprints gives voice to the groundbreaking and brilliant engineers, designers, and artists that have, in film after film, created the most imaginative and iconic locales in the history of cinema. Melding science and art, these drawings giving birth to fantastic new worlds, ships, and creatures.

Most importantly, Blueprints shows how in bringing this extraordinary epic to life, the world of special effects as we know it was born. For the first time, here you will see the initial concepts behind such iconic Star Wars scenes as the Rebel blockade runner hallways, the bridge of General Grievous s flagship, the interior of the fastest hunk of junk in the Galaxy, and Jabba the Hutt's palace. Never before seen craftsmanship and artistry is evident whether floating on the Death Star, escaping on a speeder bike, or exploring the Tatooine Homestead.

Star Wars: The Blueprints is a limited edition. Only 5,000 hand-numbered English language copies will be available.

Agreed. 500 bucks for a

Agreed. 500 bucks for a book? Antiquarians and art auctioneers maybe, but how about regular folks who have been Star Wars fans for decades? How about printing a less expensive editiion for us mere mortals? How about a digital version so that we can browse the pics in our PCs, iPads or whatever?
I'd love to have this, but not at this ridiculous price. I wonder how many people are going to buy it and never unpack it and then auction it on eBay for ten times the price in future?
Arghhh!

i got it on a pricing error

i got it on a pricing error from amazon for $310 tax included so im not gonna complain.

The problem with cost of the book is its size (which for proper blueprints its still on the small side), and the quality of the make. If you take away the presentation aspect of it, it can easily be another 50 to $100 cheaper.

There are things for collectors and things for fans. You should go complain to Sideshow Toys because their premium format figures cost 300-500 dollars instead of the $10 walmart action toys.

Apples and oranges.
