Big, Fantastic Books!

I’m all for the big Star Wars books. They usually contain such great detail and images. However, I have to admit I’m pleased that two new books coming from DK will not be appearing until October. I don’t think my wallet could take the strain of yet more books releasing in April!

To that end, this October will bring us Star Wars: The Ultimate Visual Guide (600 images!) and Star Wars: Complete Locations. They’re both packed with stuff from all six episodes.

Life is good!

More Chronicles from Steve and Pablo

Ahh…this book collector is very happy! Looks like we’ll be getting two new Chronicles books: one one the posters and one giving the Chronicles treatment to the Prequels.

Chronicle Books is the company that brings us those really cool coffee table books like the super-huge Star Wars Chronicles. They know how to do the big books correctly.

Best of all, these two books are being authored by Steve Sansweet and Pablo Hidalgo. And we know they know their stuff.

You’ll have to wait until the end of the year, though, to see them.

Canon-Bending, yay!

I don’t know about anyone else, but the EU item I’m most looking forward to right now is Visionaries. Having long been a fan of alternate universes and concept art, this looks like it may be the one of most original things to come out of Dark Horse in years. Having the actual concept artists along for the ride can’t hurt either.
