OT Choose Your Own Adventure books: Hopefully you’ll get farther than me on your first read. I got killed by sand people on Tatooine after the very first decision.

One minute they are in single file - the next they are all around you.

Was the second decision to ‘leave Tatooine’ (in a 1980’s DOS style pc game adventure game?) 😉

Quality list of books, Hal.

 

For me I’d go with…

The Secret History Of Star Wars
Rinzler’s 3 ‘Making Of’ the OT books
Rinzler’s 'Star Wars Storyboard’s (for the OT)
Splinter Of The Mind’s Eye (just so different to what came after, and love ADF’s writing in this)
‘The Art Of’ OT books (pre-1997 editions, of course) 👍
‘The Visual Dictionaries’ of the various Star Wars releases (though I always give these a glance over in the book store beforehand - then wait for them to appear at the seconds stores)

Looking forward to also reading Brian Jones’ ‘George Lucas: A Life’, and Dale Pollock’s ‘Skywalking’ books shortly too.
