Star Wars: Episode I -
The Phantom Menace Scrapbook
by Ryder Windham

Published by Randomhouse


Scott's Rating:   4 out of 4


This is a good example of how to put a publication together that appeals to both kids and adult fans. Kids will love the collectible cards and flashy layout. Older fans will love the valuable information and details included. Everybody will love the beautiful shots inside. While having the standard graphics you'll see on every poster and Taco Bell promo, it does have the unique photos, too. Extras also include what I would think are unofficial logos for Naboo's Bravo Squadron and the Trade Federation. (I say unofficial because they are all printed in English, which you wouldn't expect since Naboo has its own alphabet.) Want to know more about the Jedi Council? The Sith? The Gungan? What a director, producer, or director of photography does? It's all here! This is definitely worth taking the time to pick up.



Scott:

    While 99.9999% of the photos are perfect, one single shot of Palpatine is so badly pixelated, I don't know how it made it into the book. Otherwise, all the shots a beautiful. The Bravo Squadron and Federation badges are a bit cheesy, but I recognize they are mainly for the kids....I think. The price was just a little high at $8, but as you can see I bought it, so it must be worth it. :)



Scott:

    I can't complain about much of anything in this book. If I were to point out anything, it would be the annoying little notations on some of the pictures. For example, a note points to a bug-eyed Count Dooku and says, "Count's gaze immobilizes weak-minded individuals." Er...OK. Another points to Padme's hair and says, "Practical hairstyle for travel and action." Is it really necessary to point this out? Another points to Watto's head and says, "Mind focused on profit." While I'm sure that's a joke, it's still kind of annoying.



Scott:

    I swear, on page 45 in Mos Espa, there's a guy that looks like Alice Cooper with a beard! Check it out!
