New Book Alert: Death Star Owner's Technical Manual
Posted by Eric on June 21, 2013 at 04:15 PM CST |
The Edelweiss book catalog alerts us to a new book coming this Fall: Star Wars: Death Star Owner's Technical Manual. Written by Ryder Windham and featuring art by Chris Reiff and Chris Trevas, this follow-up to The Millennium Falcon Owner's Workshop Manual will take readers inside the Empire's most feared battle station. Here's the product description:
Using brand-new, full-color cutaways providing a unique view inside the moon-sized marvel, together with other art and photographs, The Death Star Owner's Workshop Manual provides the most thorough technical description of the Death Star available, making it essential reading for all Star Wars fans.

The Death Star is a spherical space station, the size of a small moon, highly armored and armed to destroy anything from enemy spaceships to whole planets. Using cutaway drawings, exploded diagrams, and photographs, backed by detailed technical specifications and descriptions of the onboard systems, The Death Star Owner's Workshop Manual reveals the technology contained within and lays bare the awesome power (and weaknesses) of the Empire's ultimate weapon.
The image that you see above is a rough version of the book's cover. On his Facebook page, Trevas wrote that "There will be a near final version of the cover on display at Comic Con."

LucasBooks is once again partnering with real-life car manual publisher Haynes, and Windham, Reiff, and Trevas created the Millennium Falcon manual together, so if you liked that book, you'll probably enjoy this one as well.

Star Wars: Death Star Owner's Technical Manual will be released on November 5, 2013.
