The Complete Vader

The Complete Vader

Think you know all there is to know about Star Wars' central hero-villain? Ryder Windham and Peter Vilmur, authors of Star Wars: The Complete Vader ($60) might disagree. This 192-page hardcover explores all things Vader, from his history and downward spiral into the Sith, to his costume, related merchandise, and his character's cultural impact. Filled with photos and several special gatefold spreads, this special edition also includes an autographed bookplate label hand-signed by the authors.

  • Lobel's Meat Bible

    It's one thing to love eating meat, and quite another to love learning about it. If you fall into the latter category, consider picking up Lobel's Meat Bible ($27). Written by the Lobel family of master butchers, this 320-page epicurean excursion includes extensive information on beef, pork, lamb, rabbit, poultry, veal, and more, explanations of texture, flavor, and contents, and more than 150 recipes from various cuisines and origins.

  • Dark Spirits

    The rise of the martini has seen a slow decline in interesting "dark" drink offerings -- at least at the taverns, restaurants, and various dives we visit. Dark Spirits ($16) is a way to fight back against this trend at your home bar. Featuring 200 drink recipes based on bourbon, brandy, scotch, whiskey, rum, and other dark hooch, with accompanying color photographs, it's a great way to raise your mixology IQ.
