Star Wars: Incredible Cross-Sections uses DK's acclaimed cross-section artwork techniques to reveal - for the first time ever - the inner workings of the key vehicles and spacecraft from the Star Wars trilogy the most popular films of all time. Given unrestricted access to the famed Lucasfilm archives at Skywalker Ranch in California author David West Reynolds has created the definitive guide to Star Wars vehicles and spacecraft. Fourteen large-scale "exploded artworks"- including a gatefold cutaway of the Death Star - combine with in-depth text and dozens of annotations to present a unique and fascinating reference work. This is the first book ever to illustrate in stunning full-colour artwork just how the machines of Star Wars operate as working systems. No Star Wars fan should be without it!
