Today is publication day for my second Star Wars book: DK Publishing’s Star Wars: The Visual Encyclopedia. Co-authored with Adam Bray and Cole Horton, it’s a treasure trove of images and information from the galaxy far, far away. It’s presented from an in-universe perspective, which adds a fun touch compared to traditional Star Wars reference materials. For a first look, check out the interview we did with James Floyd at StarWars.com last week.
From the publisher’s description:
Covering more than 2,500 characters, creatures, planets, vehicles, Droids™, weapons, technology, and more from the Star Wars™ universe, this visual tour is the ultimate compendium for the epic saga and beyond.
Take a stunning visual tour of Star Wars with DK’s comprehensive pictorial guide to the galaxy far, far away!
From lightsabers to beasts to food and clothing, Star Wars: The Visual Encyclopedia is a virtual museum in a book. Explore beautiful galleries with more than 2,500 images, and discover facts about Star Wars culture, science, and geography.
With a full history of the galactic politics, the Jedi Council, and the Empire, Star Wars: The Visual Encyclopedia walks fans through the entire timeline of Star Wars. See the blasters of Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope™, look at the stormtroopers of Star Wars: The Force Awakens™, and study the geography of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story™.
Each section of the book focuses on different topics to dedicate special attention and detail to every part of the universe, no matter how small. From the planets in the outer rim to Padmé’s bridal wear, nothing is missed.
A celebration of all things Star Wars, this compendium is the perfect addition to any fan’s bookshelf.
Star Wars: The Visual Encyclopedia is available now in bookstores, Amazon and other online retailers, and DK’s booth at Star Wars Celebration Orlando next week.
The authors will be signing copies of the book at Celebration, followed by a three-week book tour around the country. Check the DK event page for details.
