SYNOPSIS
A lavish, full-color volume devoted to the creative genius and technical wizardry behind the dazzling space epic.

Here are some highlights...

•Model construction of the new Death Star
•Exterior and interior development of Jabba's palace
•Blueprints and sketches of Imperial shuttle design
•Jabba's Sail Barge, from early sketches to live-action stills
•The Moon of Endor, from construction of the Ewok village to creation of the Ewoks themselves
•New Rebel and Imperial vehicles, including the speeder bikes and Admiral Ackbar's ship

The Art of Return of the Jedi—a volume that commemorates the remarkable vision behind the year's most wonderful movie!
