    I came across an article on theforce.net that has a link to a podcast featuring Roger Christian, the Academy Award set decorator, prop designer for Star Wars and Alien. He has a forthcoming book being written and edited by Johnathan Rinzler called Cinema Alchemist.

    It will document how Roger's idea of using airplane scrap to decorate the sets of these films, along with found objects, including the lightsaber, one of cinema's most iconic props.

    Really interesting stuff, and I know I'd love to own a copy!
