This book is much better than the first art book as the script is removed and replaced with more art.
The concept sketches and paintings are grouped under different sets: Hoth, Star Destroyer, Dagobah, Asteroid Belt, Bespin, Rebel Cruiser. Storyboards, character designs, matte paintings, vehicle designs, models fill the pages. The concept design for old Yoda are hilarious, no offense intended, with a few looking like smurfs or Santa's elves.
There are not much text except for chapter openings that explain the set design and creation.
It's a great book for fans and sci-fi concept artists. The original book was published way back in 1980 with a reprint in 1994.
