Overview

John Knoll was 14 years old when the first Star Wars film (Episode IV) came out in 1977, and it changed his life. By the time the first prequel, The Phantom Menace, was released in 1999, he was its visual effects supervisor—in charge of all special effects—a position he held through Episodes II (Attack of the Clones) and III (Revenge of the Sith). With Knoll as tour guide, this deluxe addition to Abrams’ 365 Days series provides the single most comprehensive collection of Star Wars images, including breathtaking 360-degree panoramic shots of sets and models, as well as concept art, props, film stills, and memorabilia.

The only book that covers all six films, Star Wars: 365 Days is Knoll’s spectacular survey of the visual world created by those films. It shows us George Lucas and his crew creating their universe on location and in the studio—in pages dense with imagery and information, documenting a remarkable sustained creative effort by hundreds of devoted filmmakers and craftsmen.

This particular book is page for page, picture for picture, and word for word an exact copy of the previous Creating the Worlds of Star Wars. The only thing that is different is the cover. I included a picture of the previous book at the end of this review. Look in your Star Wars library. If you have that book, do not buy this one.
