Two New becker&mayer! Star Wars Books Announced

Posted by Eric on April 8, 2014 at 07:55 AM CST

becker&mayer!'s 2014 catalog has revealed two new titles in their Star Wars collection: The Imperial Handbook: A Commander's Guide and Star Wars Costumes: The Original Trilogy.

The Imperial Handbook follows becker&mayer!'s previous interactive titles, The Jedi Path, Book of Sith, and The Bounty Hunter Code. It will be written by the same author, Dan Wallace, and illustrated by Chris Trevas and Chris Reiff. The catalog describes it as having a "mechanized case," "lights and sounds," an "introduction note by Luke" (we're assuming Skywalker), and "a specially designed die-cast Imperial military medal." You can see more details about the book in the catalog scan below.

Star Wars Costumes: The Original Trilogy, written by Brandon Alinger, is 266 pages and is described as follows:
Who can forget the first time they saw Darth Vader with his black cape and mask? The white hard-body suit of the stormtroopers? Or Leia’s outfit as Jabba’s slave? These costumes—like so many that adorned the characters of that galaxy far, far away—have become iconic. For the first time, the Lucasfilm Archives has unpacked the original costumes to be revealed in breathtaking detail.

Featuring all-new photography, Star Wars Costumes: The Original Trilogy affords both new and longtime Star Wars fans the opportunity to examine the stormtrooper armor and discover how it changed from movie to movie; explore Boba Fett’s suit and inspect the rarely seen details of his blaster and jetpack; compare the helmets and jumpsuits of the rebel fighters; and study the details of the Hoth fighter uniforms.

This lavish large-format book not only showcases high-quality photography of each costume, it also pairs these stunning images with original sketches, behind-the-scenes photographs, production notes, and stories.
