Star Wars. Star Wars. Star Wars.
Have you had enough yet? What a stupid question…
Here’s a treat for this week’s Fandom Friday. Go put your reading glasses on.
Must-Have Star Wars Books
1. Star Wars, Episode III: Revenge of the Sith
A case of screenplay turned into a book, this creation of Matthew Stover has been received very well, which is hardly surprising. It’s based on a movie. The author is a bestseller. Not a bad combination.
It’s available in eBook, hardcover, and mass paperback formats.
2. Ultimate Star Wars Book
Straight from Disney’s Department of Milking it, this book is THE ultimate book every Star Wars fan must have (d’oh, the title says it). It’s perfect for displaying in the living room, don’t you think?
3. Dressing a Galaxy: The Costumes of Star Wars
Authored by Trisha Biggar, who actually was part of the team that created the costumes of the actors for the Star Wars prequel trilogy. It’s humongous – literally – and filled with eye-popping images. From Jedis to Siths to Slaves – you’ll find all sorts of custom costumes and how they were made. Oh, and there’s Queen Padme Amidala.
4. STAR WARS: Limited Edition Pop-up [Limited Numbered Signed First Edition in Slipcase & Original Plastic Bag]
“A spectacular Limited Numbered First Edition Pop-up book, signed by paper master Matthew Reinhart on the front cover pop-up and numbered 445 of 500 Limited Edition copies. Based on the Star Wars motion pictures. In black cloth in a matching slipcase, the book consists of 12 sets of pages, each with multiple pop-ups, over 35 pop-ups and working lightsabers along with sound on the final set of pop-ups (pictured). Outside measurement 8 1/2″ x 11”. Reinhart’s best so far. Also issued in an unsigned trade edition. By the paper artist of “Jungle Book”. Slipcase: Fine Parrish Books guarantees all signatures as authentic.”
It looks amazing, but remember, Limited Editions don’t come cheap.
5. A Pop-up Book Star Wars Return of the Jedi
Here’s another pop-up book that you must have if you want to start your children young on being a Star Wars fan. As much as you love your kids, you probably won’t want them playing with the Limited Edition book signed by paper master Matthew Reinhart, so here’s a good substitute.
6. Star Wars Rebels Ultimate Factivity Collection Book
While some books are meant to be kept in pristine condition, most should be read, used, and tattered as the years go by. That’s what books are for!
But not all books are created equal, and for young kids, stickers and books go together. This is another way to get your kids deeper into the Star Wars universe. Make sure they’re already watching Star Wars Rebels.
