Format: Hardcover
DK Publishing continues a trend of producing lavish coffee table books filled with page after page of montages of full color images. In this case, the topic is the Star Wars phenomenon.

This coffee table book is very large - one inch thick, 10 inches wide and nearly a foot high. My copy does not have the color cover featured by Amazon, but rather it is black and white with very similar photos of the exact same characters in the exact same positions on the page. I did verify that it is the same book by using Amazon's sneak peek feature.

This book could just as easily have been called "George Lucas Year by Year." Star Wars dominates Lucas's career like the Eiffel Tower dominates the Paris skyline. Perhaps, even more so.

As the title states, the book is a visual timeline of George Lucas, Star Wars and the people and companies involved in its production and promotion. We see early handwritten notes about "Journal of the Whills" - one of the first drafts of Star Wars Episode IV. Later on, we see further updates, including the introduction of a character named Luke Starkiller who, of course, became Luke Skywalker in later revisions. We learn about Lucas's early life, his early films and his influences and a bit about the research he did to create the series.

Included in the timelines are other bits of news about movies, politics and space exploration.

I purchased this book for my husband for Christmas, who is a big Star Wars fan. I thought he'd like to see the Chronological & the historical background of what he is so passionate about. The book is full of photos and lots of information. He was very impressed when I presented it to him and reads from it every night. He was not disappointed in the least. I recommend this book for any Star Wars enthusiast, whether you're young or older.

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By C. Hill HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWER on December 25, 2011
Format: Hardcover
"Star Wars Year By Year" is an informative and entertaining timeline that covers significant events relating to the development and release of the original "Star Wars" movie and all of the Star Wars related sequels, books, comics, and merchandising through the second season of The Clone Wars (2009). This is a trivia lovers dream as each event has a picture and blurb on how the event relates to the Star Wars franchise.

This is a great looking coffee table sized book that comes in a nice protective cover. The pictures inside the book are generally good quality and the two removable pictures of Harrison Ford and Clone Wars art in the front pouch are a great addition.

Being a huge Star Wars fan, I really enjoyed reading through and learning more about the evolution of Star Wars.

Highly Recommended!
