SYNOPSIS
This amazing title unites all four Incredible Cross-Sections books in one volume, enlarged and updated with brand-new illustrations—including the TIE bomber, the Imperial shuttle, and the A-wing, and B-wing fighters—along with revised technical introductions, behind-the-scenes pages

Produced in close creative partnerships with the famed Lucasfilm Art Department, this definitive reference work reveals more that 50 essential spaceships and vehicles from all six Star Wars movies.

Unbelievably detailed, full-color cross-section artworks—including four massive gatefolds—peel back the layers to reveal each craft’s weapons systems, engines, hyperdrives, cockpits, and construction secrets.

Encyclopedic, authoritative text provides contexts, back-stories, and histories, while informative labels explain every intricate detail.
