After George Lucas wrapped up film on the last Star Wars movie; Episode III: Revenge of the Sith, the master wanted to be able to look back over the entire saga from a whole new point of view. He wanted to isolate the stills, or frames, from every one of the 6 Star Wars epics and display them as works of design and photography in one volume. This was a process that took years as there is more than 150,000 frames in each movie, which effectively meant that he edited more than 1m frames down into the 1,416 images that made the final cut and appear in all their glory in Star Wars: Frames ($95). A real labor of love that was worth every minute, this is a phenomenal book that is an absolute must have.
