Star Wars and History

Star Wars and History cover

I can finally share the gorgeous cover for Star Wars and History that should be out in bookstores this November. A lot of talented people have contributed to this collection and you’re going to have such fun reading the histories as well as reviewing the illustrations drawn from historical and Lucasfilm images.

It’s been a lot of work (and there’s still some to go as we’re in the midst of copy edits) but so very rewarding. Fourteen-year-old me, who fell hard for Star Wars even before the film hit the theaters thanks to an early look at the novelization would have been so excited to know that someday I’d be working on this project.

      Isn’t it beautiful? (Good thing they don’t have historians making covers for our own books, let me tell you!)
