This is going to be a bit vague, so Ill do my best to describe it. About 20 years ago I ran a cross a book. It was big, like 13"x18". It had a fancy cloth like cover with artwork. The book was thick, 2"-3". In it, was all of the costumes, props, models etc. The costumes were both assembled and disassembled and layed out part for part. Thats about all I can remember about it and Ive never seen it since. It was pretty pricey as well. Any ideas what that book was?
Was it Star Wars Chronicles? That’s still considered THE definitive prop and costume book by many I believe. And it is huge, though not quite as huge as you describe.
Ya know, I really dont remember. This was probably 1993-1997 time period. I wanna say I may have run across it again a few years later, but it didnt seem that it was the same book. The only memories I have was the pricetag, $80-$130 and that it had every costume, model or outfit fully laid out, piece by piece. Other than that one or two times, Ive never seen it again.
After Googleing it, I think thats it. The only definitive thing I recall was it had Boba Fetts outfit laid out piece for piece. Apparently, its somewhat of a collecters piece. I wish I wasnt so poor back then. I definitely wouldve bought it. I guess I have an excuse now to buy it now that I know the name of it. THANX!
Only a year late! Sorry - just joined.
You’re definitely describing Star Wars Chronicles (though you’re remembering it to be even bigger than it was, which is normal. Memories do that! Nevertheless, it’s a whopper of a coffee table book, has the Boba Fett pieces all laid out.)
Best OT book ever made.
