The perfect gift for the Star Wars fan in your life: the definitive, lavishly illustrated reference guide to the universe of the first six films!

This comprehensive boxed set of three hefty volumes covers every aspect of Star Wars, from the original six movies to The Clone Wars, radio dramas, comics, novels, cartoons, short stories, and video games. With a treasure trove of information on more than thirty years of Star Wars—and a millennia in the galaxy far, far away—this is the must-have centerpiece for every Star Wars library. Abundantly illustrated with full-color artwork and photos, and now in a new three-volume edition to accommodate its wealth of detailed entries, the Star Wars Encyclopedia encompasses the full measure of George Lucas’s creation.

Here’s just a sampling of what’s inside:

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for the Star Wars fan! With the weight of a cinder block this has to be the heaviest Star Wars book set I've ever picked up. Full of everything you wanted to know about Star Wars. Be warned that a lot of it has been retconned from Star Wars lore since Disney's purchase of the franchise

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LISTED WRONG - THIS IS ACTUALLY THE HARD COVER EDITION Turns out that the trade paperback edition does not really exist. Chapters.Indigo is listing this wrong. This is actually the hard cover edition. I took a chance and ordered it and I was right. Just compare the ISBN numbers on this site and another site where you can buy the hard cover and you'll find that they match. Awesome set of books at a good price.
