Taschen books are beautiful. I'm the proud owner of the Stanley Kubrick Archives as well as a book they did specifically on "2001: A Space Odyssey". But they are pricey. The other thing is, once the initial run sells out, they will often make a smaller, cheaper version with most (if not all) of the same content but printed on normal paper instead of fine art paper, and those end up costing a lot less. So if you want the content but can live with it in a smaller, less fancy form, there will probably be a version like that in a year or two.From Taschen Books who did The Stanley Kubrick Archives & Charlie Chaplin Archives & Disney, etc., there's The Star Wars Archives book coming in November.
Needless to say, this piques my interest but at a $200 MSRP and the fact that Star Wars has been VERY well documented throughout the years, I do wonder how much new ground could be covered by this book.
