The ultimate Star Wars coffeetable book is just about the prettiest encyclopedia you’ve ever seen. Ultimate Star Wars came out earlier this year, but it’s certainly still worth a look. This gorgeous book is the latest title to attempt an encyclopedic look at the Star Wars universe, and it’s the first since Disney and Lucasfilm rebooted canon and relegated nearly 30 years of stories to non-canon “Legends.” Therefore, this book covers the first six films, The Clone Wars, and Rebels.
It was a monumental undertaking, and the book reflects a deep love for the subject. The text is incredibly detailed and presents both significant events and minutiae with equal aplomb. In addition, it’s just a downright beautiful book (if you’re a fan of Star Wars). Every spread – every page – is filled with full-color photos that make casually flipping through the book an absolute pleasure.
