The classic tale of good versus evil set in a galaxy far, far away, quickly became a cultural phenomenon during its time, inspiring a generation of story lovers and storytellers. Now, the original trilogy of Star Wars shines anew with the vibrant concept art of Ralph McQuarrie, the legendary conceptual designer behind the original trilogy.

Collected in a picture book for the first time, McQuarrie's art is paired with captivating text by a high-profile author-a winning combination that will delight Star Wars fans old and new and delight generations of readers to come.

This is a book I certainly look forward to picking up.  It's great to see that as we move forward into this new era of Star Wars, with Disney, the people who helped made Star Wars what it is, like Ralph McQuarrie, will still be celebrated.
