Here's a book for all those Star Wars and Indiana Jones fans. This book showcases the models, creatures, props, costumes, matte paintings and art used for the movies, the Star Wars prequels and the three Indiana Jones.

There's not a lot of writeup but they are always interesting to read. It's a great look behind the scenes are all the props used during filming. Sometimes the models are miniatures, sometimes they are life size, like Jabba the Hutt. There are a

E' una raccolta commentata di schizzi preparatori, storyboard, mock-up, giornaliere di regia, fondali, armi, oggetti di scena e tanto altro della trilogia "classica" di Star Wars (episodi IV-VI) e dei tre film di Indiana Jones. Tanto per fare un esempio, ancora non c'era la computer grafica all'epoca, e tutti i fondali da utilizzare in bluescreen erano rigorosamente dipinti a mano... Vere opere d'arte! Il volume è in lingua inglese.

Released in 1994, this covers SW IV-V-VI and IJ I-II-III. Beautifully illustrated with storyboards, production art, matte paintings and photos of props, miniatures and sets. Many detailed images that were new to me.

There isn't much text, but the pictures are very good.

The second half is similar in style, only I've never much liked Indiana Jones, haven't seen any of the films fully, so props like a whip, a pocket watch, an old diary, are not in

This was an amazing look inside one of the most prolific, and imaginative, movie companies of all time. The book detailed many of the artifacts we know and love that have been preserved from George Lucas's most loved movies.

Books like this make it clear why the prequels suck.
