Star Wars Year by Year: A Visual Chronicle Book Review

About the Book: From the first release of Star Wars: A New Hope in 1977 to the 2009 second season of The Clone Wars, Star Wars Year By Year: A Visual Chronicle is an unparalleled chronological journey through the making of the most epic science fiction series ever! Featuring incredible illustrations and stills, the book chronologically details the history and development of the Star Wars movies; the events, press, and logistics surrounding the making of each movie; and exclusive interviews with people who worked behind the scenes. The year-by-year format includes images from the movies, TV series, comic books, video games, and novels as well as movie posters, memorabilia, book covers, and more.

Our Take: This book gets our award for best Star Wars book to date.  This hardcover book comes in a really flashy foil side-loading slipcase.  This book comes with two collectible prints, one of which is Star Wars: Clone Wars animated artwork and the other is a vintage photo of Harrison Ford.  

This book chronicles the epic of Star Wars, beginning with the 1960s and early influences on George Lucas to present day.  It goes year by year and gives not only what happened in Star Wars, but also how popular culture was influenced by Star Wars in some way.  The book obviously can only go into so much detail on any one specific issue, but it does include a lot of early production tidbits and stories that we found to be really interesting.  The book has full-color photos and great amounts of info.  

This book has a great presentation and is wonderful for any serious collector or just casual fan and admirer of pop culture.  We highly recommend.
