With Knoll as tour guide, this deluxe addition to Abramsand#8217; 365 Days series provides the single most comprehensive collection of Star Wars images, including breathtaking 360-degree panoramic shots of sets and models, as well as concept art, props, film stills, and memorabilia.
The only book that covers all six films, Star Wars: 365 Days is Knolland#8217;s spectacular survey of the visual world created by those films. It shows us George Lucas and his crew creating their universe on location and in the studioand#8212;in pages dense with imagery and information, documenting a remarkable sustained creative effort by hundreds of devoted filmmakers and craftsmen.
