A galaxy in miniature.

by J. Bradley on 3/24/2007

This book is billed as a companion to "Dressing a Galaxy" the previously released book on the costumes of Star Wars. While that book contained many detailed shots of the fine work put in to costuming, and some rare photos from the earlier films, many of the photos seemed to have been culled from those used as press and reference stills and have appeared in other Star Wars books. "Sculpting a Galaxy" seems to have been a special production all on it's own. There's a real sense of exploring the detail and craftsmanship of the miniature work in the photos. The book covers not only the spaceships and vehicles but the droids, creatures and the amazing miniature "sets" which were created (the most revealing aspect of production this books presents, I think). The text by Lorne Peterson reveals many subtle aspects of the production never before described so concisely elsewhere. I find myself constantly picking up this book and poring over the many detailed iconic spacecrafts and aliens and seeing things I've never noticed before. My experience with this book is much like when the original "Art of Star Wars" came out. If like me, you collect many of the books on the production of the Star Wars films, this book is definitely a must have.
