    ‘This title will be released on November 15, 2018.’

    Made with the full cooperation of George Lucas and Lucasfilm, this first volume covers the making of the original trilogy – Episode IV: A New Hope, Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back, and Episode VI: Return of the Jedi– and features an exclusive interview with Lucas. The book is profusely illustrated with script pages, production documents, concept art, storyboards, on-set photography, stills, and posters.

    I think its really hard to find good new set-pics today that are really worth to buy a new book.I think this book is again a complete story around the OT.
    But when it looks great I´m in (again).:lol

    Published by Taschen.
    If it's anything like the Stanley Kubrick Archives, it should be awesome.
    I'm totally ordering this.

    The Making of Stanley Kubrick 2001 by Tasche is a superb book, the only problem I have with it it's the odd monolith shape, that is not perfect for a book like this. But the overall design pales in comparison with the high quality printing, and the details of the book itself. I hope this Star Wars will be the same, minus the odd shape (they can make it round like the Death Star though :p)

    Hmmmm...yeah hopefully it’s not “monolithic-like”. My 2001 book is awkward to hold, the detail of the pictures is outstanding but horribly truncated due to them being cut in half by the binding, and the binding itself looks like it’s about to go, even though I’ve only cracked the book open a couple of times. Just a terrible design...it could have been a truly great book.

    That's interesting to know. I'll wait til it goes on sale. Don't plan on buying a book for a few hundred dollars only to have it fall apart. :(

    There's a "monolith" version of 2001 that came out later (yep, the format is terrible), but the Kubrick Archives book has a more traditional format.
    At 8"x10" (based on the Amazon description), it seems like this will have a traditional format. :thumbsup

    Can anyone confirm that this book will have a majority of photos/ pictures or images that’ll be completely different to the ones by Rinzler ?
    Asking cause I’ve managed to collect all three ‘ The Making Of ‘ and several Hidalgo ones , along with L.Petersons ( some DK too ) , and would rather purchase the SW Chronicles ( Japanese Version ) than double down on reference material if that’s not the case .

    :cheersGed

    Yeah, I'll be waiting to see once they come out. I have all three Rinzler Making Of books in both hardcover & digital. They're very in depth with tons of behind the scene photos (& videos with the digital), & interviews.
    With the price of this new book, it's gonna have to be full of all kinds of new content.

    Im hoping there would be new Light or at least new production photos of Vader from any of the films! The price seem high and Im hoping its not just the same old recycled photos we have seen for many years

    If they got to take photos of all the stuff in the archive storage, then the book will have stuff we haven't seen and potentially be worth the relatively high price. But, if it is a compilation of known information with just a new Text, then it will be over-priced, and a discretionary buy for a lot of people.

    I have the Taschen 2001 A Space Odyssey in its monolithic form and it's a great book! Not so much for the model makers though:cry, but that's another story.
    As for this book, I don't have much hope seeing new material.

    Even if it isn't new, I'd love to have all the material from the Chronicles at a higher res, better-quality print.

    As beautiful as this looks, I'm still on the fence about this if only because I just sold off my Star Wars photo reference books (save for a few key entries) late last year or earlier this year.

    It has a retro feel to it! Looks like it could have been printed in the late 70's! Love it, but a bit pricey!
