Star Wars: The Ultimate Visual Guide uncovers the full story of the amazing Star Wars saga, with more than 1,000 images from the movies, cartoons, comics, novels, and TV series, along with merchandise, behind-the-scenes photography, and much more. This extensively researched guide reveals the complete, millennia-spanning history of George Lucas's long ago, far-away galaxy, from the origins of the noble Jedi and the evil Sith to the rise of Luke Skywalker's New Jedi Order - an ideal introduction to the world of Star Wars and an invaluable addition to every fan's collection...

This updated and expanded edition now also includes overviews and images of the Star Wars: The Clone Wars television series, an in-depth look at The Old Republic video game as well as stunning new merchandise and the phenomenally successful LEGO Star Wars theme.

This coffee table book is designed to be picked up and digested in bite-sized pieces. Sure you can read it from cover to cover, but there's something fun about randomly flicking to a page and reading the entry.

This is a lovingly laid out book that looks at almost every aspect of the Star Wars universe. My personal favourite sections were the explorations of some of the more modern merchandise - sadly there's no mention of the lightsaber chopsticks or Han Solo in carbonite ice cube trays, but there's a look at the Star Wars electric guitar, Yoda Christmas ornament, R2-D2 themed Xbox 360 and C3P0 cellotape dispenser.

A fun and worthwhile addition to any Star Wars fan's library.
