Omigod, this is awesome! It's so detailed that you can see the people and furniture in some of the interiors; it's almost like looking through home-plan books, which I love doing--but these plans are for ships in space!

Even though the page count to these books are in the 30s you can spend hours looking at them and not seeing everything first time around - they are amazing books and the quality and detail of the art just makes me jealous of their skill.

Although this is a short book, the artwork and cross-section in this book is absolutely brilliant and goes into a lot of detail of 14 seperate artworks, including a gatefold cutaway depicting the heart of the Trade Federation invasion fleet. The book includes an encyclopedic text alongside these beautiful drawings providing the perfect reference resource for the craft of Star Wars: Episode I. This book helps to give depth to the Star Wars Universe.

If you are a fan of Star Wars I would highly rec
