Review:

The focus of this book is on the costumes for Star Wars Episode I, II and III. The amazing variety of costumes were designed by Trisha Biggar, the costume designer for the Star Wars prequel trilogy. There are more than 300 photos included. The book is sought after and has hence risen in price by an average of £20 for the standard issue. The layout is excellent, visually this is a masterpiece in photography and the layout is worthy of the cronicles gold standard. For PT fans this is definately one to own.

Verdict:

This book is now quite expensive. I purchased mine for £40 in Forbidden Planet in 2005 but can now be currently found on amazon or play.com in the £65 region. If your an original Trilogy fan you would no doubt appreciate the excellent costume references from the Prequels but it is a tad expensive. Worth every penny if you want to recreate a costume from the PT or just have a well put together book, this is one to own along with the Cronicle Prequels.

Rating: 4.5 out of 5 - Highly Recommended

Brief Description:

The full visual panoply of Star Wars regalia is on display - everything from military gear to royal robes to Jedi and Sith costumes are shown from pre-production sketches to artist's renderings to the final filmed version. Actors, including Natalie Portman and Samuel L. Jackson, provide commentary on their experiences during filming, while stunning photographs present the costumes in intimate detail.
