The new Star Wars movie is released later this month (or if you are reading this after mid-May then it is already on general release). And what dedicated fans of the movie want, or will really want once they have seen the movie, is a huge book that depicts some of the on screen visual effects in much more detail.

If you have seen the movie and wanted to know more about a creature or planet that appeared on screen for a few seconds then The Art of Star Wars: Attack of the Clones is the book for you. There are page after page of production drawings and models that were used to help George Lucas visualise his story.

Lovingly illustrated from the start (just check out the front cover detail if you don't believe me) there is only one really complaint that can be levelled at this work of art. It is a little difficult to find anything specific in the book.

As there is no index section and the contents are broken up into just two sections finding the pages which contain, for example, Padme's costume designs is not an easy task.

An added bonus is the illustrated screenplay towards the rear of the book. While this is not particularly well illustrated (there is only one, sometimes none, very small picture on each page) its text content is pretty comprehensive.

It's beautiful, it's heavy and its relatively cheap for what you get. So if you want a memento of the latest Star Wars movie then this is a must purchase.
