The Making of Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back

The Making of Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back

We were huge fans of the backstage tales, photos, and info contained in The Making of Star Wars, so it's little surprise we're stoked to get our hands on its sequel. The Making of Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back ($50) is once again penned by J.W. Rinzler, an executive editor at Lucasfilm, and at 362 pages, outpaces its predecessor with even more behind-the-scenes info, early scripts, production notes, and anecdotes from those who were there, including the unsung director Irvin Kershner. For a taste, check out this brief preview in Vanity Fair, but trust us: a taste is never enough. [via]

  • Boozehound

    Part travel diary, part investigative reporting, part recipe book, and wholly entertaining, Boozehound ($16) is quite the read for any sauce-loving creature.
