"There are so many people around the world who have expressed interest in visiting Rancho Obi-Wan, but it's just not possible," says author Steve Sansweet, referring to his vast personal museum which houses the world's largest collection of Star Wars memorabilia. "This book is a sort of virtual tour. It's filled with colorful photos of both familiar and never-before-seen items with lots of stories and anecdotes about how the items came to be or how they ended up in a former chicken barn in Northern California.

Star Wars: 1,000 Collectibles, due out from Abrams on October 1, takes the reader on a journey through cool and kitsch, from toys and costumes to life-size statues made of LEGO bricks to consumer goods such as candy, clothing, toothpaste -- and much more. Drawn from the largest private Star Wars collection in the known universe, this stunning treasure trove of memorabilia and colorful anecdotes mixes fun with nostalgia, delighting both the casual fan and the serious collector. Since the first Star Wars film opened in 1977, George Lucas's epic space fantasy has become not only one of the most successful entertainment franchises of all time, but also an obsession for collectors around the globe, who have spent more than $15 billion on Star Wars merchandise."
