LEGO Star Wars: Small Scenes from a Big Galaxy offers a unique look into the world of Star Wars, from the lens of Vesa Lehtimaki. When I pre-ordered this book a few months ago, I thought it would be a small-ish picture book that was maybe 30 pages long (and I would have been happy with that considering the low price tag), but I was pleased to find that it is a full-sized coffee table book containing over 170 pages filled with beautiful photographs and wonderful descriptions!

One particularly interesting bit for me was the "Making Of" section at the back of the book, which contains photos of Vesa's photography setups for various photos that are displayed throughout the book. The book also details the various techniques for creating atmosphere at such small scale, trial and error with lighting effects, and the list could go on.

This book, LEGO combined with Star Wars, is a must-have if you're a fan of either franchises, and a no-brainer if you're a fan of both.

Very well done book. The shots are gorgeous and I really enjoyed the explanations and how-tos in the back of the book. Great value for the money and a perfect addition to any LEGO fan's book collection.

This book is great! It ended up exceeding my expectations. Vesa shows his passion of both photography and Star Wars starting from his introduction to the mini stories he creates with his pictures (with descriptions on the bottom of each picture) and behind the scene segments in the last few pages of the book. Also when Vesa transitions his story telling to different planets he has some neat photos that aid that transition. Finally he adds pictures of the minifigure's profile when transitioning scences. What a fantastic addition to my collection and such a fun book to go through on my spare time. This book is money well spent and a must have for any Star Wars collector.

The physical quality of the book is superb. It's printed on heavy paper and you can tell by its overall heft they did not scrimp on quality on this book.

And at over 170 pages there is a lot of material here. In the back of the book there are several pages of Q&A and behind the scenes photos, with the author discussing how he came to take on this project and how he goes about it. Very interesting.

Now about the photos: Overall they are beautiful. What a great concept, photographing toys in this manner. In general many shots are darkly lit but that is the style the author is going for.

However, my one qualm with the book is that several of the photos are just too dark to really see the fine details of what is being presented in the frame. (By the way, I own the book and am looking at it right now as I type this.)

In fact, now that I compare the book closely to the author's photos online, the book is darker than the original photos.

So while the original photos style may be purposely dark in style, in the book they are presented even darker and we lose a good deal of detail.

Here are the photos on the web: https://www.flickr.com/photos/avanaut/with/8610245929/

Finally I have to note that the book has inspired my son and me to photograph his LEGO toys in a similar style. Now that's fun!

For the Star Wars fan or Lego fan the pictures in this very thick heavy book are beautiful, arresting, creative and stunning. Who knew you could do such amazing things with Lego Star Wars photography! My son who is 5 now wants to pose his mini figures in totally different ways and create scenes that are atmospheric after looking through this book. There is text as well to describe the scene created that is interesting to read. It is much more than just a one time flip through. It really is a book I enjoy reading through often. Again, I cannot emphasize enough how beautiful some of these scenes are. Extremely creative and well worth a purchase.

This is an awesome book! The photos are expertly done and there are plenty of photos to look through. Some of them are simple portraits of minifigures, but the majority of the photos contain complex lighting and environment scenarios. I bought this for my younger brother since he is really into both star wars and legos. The example photos shown for this product are a pretty good representation of what to expect for the rest of the photos in the album.

I've followed this artist for many months and was excited to hear the book was coming. It's a celebration of lego that evokes motion & emotion. Perhaps the most intriguing aspect is the lighting treatments which are excellent. Also a cool experience seeing these large color prints after gazing at the small digital versions. Beautiful work!

This book smashed all of my expectations! The imaginative ways he placed the LEGOS, even fitting them with their characters, was amazing. Also enjoyed his explanations of how he was able to get things like snow and sand to look real despite using tiny LEGO mini-figures.
