The Frames You Want at The Price You'll Love
Abrams Books' Star Wars: Frames
is a follow-up to the visually stunning, limited edition release book set featuring George Lucas' personally selected stills from all six films in the Star Wars
saga. This more affordable version of Frames --usually referred to as a cheap edition, but in this instance is by no means cheap-- features the same 1,472 photos (368 pages per book) in two hardcover books (previously six) housed in a cardboard cover (instead of a wooden box) as the $3,000 version released two years ago. Frames is set for release November 5, 2013 with an MSRP of $150. Follow the above link to see whatís inside.
