REVIEW: Star Wars: The Blueprints

Weighing over twenty-five pounds, Star Wars: The Blueprints is literally a hefty new addition to the line of nonfiction coffee-table books that give fans behind-the-scenes glimpses at the creative process of the Star Wars films, providing an in-depth look at a stage of the creative process rarely seen previously by the public: the technical drawings from the production design department. After having a chance to preview it at San Diego Comic-Con this summer, Tricia was really impressed with how cool the book is. With her expertise as an engineer, that was recommendation enough for me to buy it and review it for the blog. To quote Vader, it’s most impressive.
