A brand-new explosive, interactive, pop-off-the-page book about George Lucas's STAR WARS movies from NY TIMES bestseller Matthew Reinhart!
Matthew Reinhart has created another spectacular pop-up book for George Lucas's epic STAR WARS movies! The NEW YORK TIMES bestselling pop-up artist and engineer has created a brand-new 3-D experience, packed with a variety of novelty features -- pop-ups, working lightsabers, pull tabs, and other interactive looks at the exciting and popular movies. This new look at STARS WARS explores the characters, stories, vehicles, droids, and more in the three prequel movies and the Clone Wars. It's a stunning book that will impress all fans of STAR WARS and gives a whole new perspective to the universe.
"Five years after Star Wars: A Pop-up Guide to the Galaxy, Reinhart strikes back with another gorgeous pop-up tribute to Star Wars. Illustrated in the same precise yet painterly style as its predecessor, this offering is divided into five spreads loosely organized by planets, creatures, evildoers, technology, and the rise of Darth Vader (who gets a light-up lightsaber) and focuses on the more recent Star Wars films. Thus, characters like Queen Amidala, General Grievous (who launches out from his spread in all his spindly, skeletal glory), and even Jar Jar Binks get their due (Reinhart's unspooling destroyer droid and battle-ready Darth Maul are especially wonderful). Reinhart's books remain a marvel of movement, intricacy, and skill. Ages 7 up. (Oct.)" Publishers Weekly (Starred Review) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
