And Here's the Kicker

And Here's the Kicker

You don't need to be an aspiring comedy writer to enjoy and appreciate the wisdom shared in And Here's the Kicker ($12) — but it helps. Written by Mike Sacks, this hilarious, helpful book is based on conversations with 21 of the top humor writers alive today, who share their experiences and stories of the comedy writing scene with as much funniness as they employ in their actual work.

  • Star Wars: The Blueprints

    Been dreaming of hiring a celestial crew to build your very own fully armed and operational battle station? You're going to need this. Star Wars: The Blueprints ($450) brings together for the first time more than 500 photographs and illustrations that show how the Star Wars galaxy was designed, from R2-D2 and the Cantina to the Millennium Falcon and the Death Star, accompanied by commentary by J. W. Rinzler and many of the original draftsmen who worked on the designs themselves. More than a simple book, this deluxe 15" x 18" tome weighs in at 35 pounds, and is limited to just 5,000 English-language copies, each of which will be hand-numbered. Technically, it's sorta like owning the MacGuffin from Episode IV.

  • The Guitar Collection

    Part history lesson, part photo book, all bad-ass. That pretty much sums up The Guitar Collection ($1,500-$3,000) , a journey through the most important guitars in music, curated by dozens of guitar experts from public and private collections around the world, and lovingly photographed so you can see every scratch, crack, and oily knob in all its glory, including axes used by Buddy Holly, Kurt Cobain, Jeff Beck, and many more. It comes in a custom-made guitar case, along with a certificate of authenticity, the companion book Stories, and one of three signed museum-quality prints from photographer John Peden. Available in three editions — one for each of the prints — and limited to just 1,500 copies each.
