The Star Wars Vault: Thirty Years of Treasures from the Lucasfilm Archives, With Removable Memorabilia and Two Audio CDs by Stephen J. Sansweet and Peter Vilmur (HarperEntertainment; on-sale October 30, 2007; $85.00) is the official illustrated book celebrating this year's 30th anniversary of George Lucas' first Star Wars movie, and includes removable reproductions of memorabilia, along with two CDs containing vintage radio ads, original cast interviews, George Lucas' commentary, and even Carrie Fisher singing in the Star Wars Holiday Special.

The Star Wars Vault is the insider's look at the development and making of all six movies, and the huge cultural impact they've had. In addition to hundreds of photos and pieces of artwork, the book includes fifty interactive, rare, and some never-before-seen pieces of memorabilia.

Among the book's features are:

  • Lucasfilm Christmas cards
  • Iron-on T-shirt transfer
  • The very first concept sketch drawn for Star Wars
  • Blueprints of Star Wars vehicles and sets

The Star Wars Vault is the ultimate, one-of-a-kind insider's look into the sensation that launched a phenomenon that includes six feature films; two spin-off films; three television series with more to come; and an extensive collection of licensed books, comics, video games, action figures, trading cards, and many other products worldwide.

    Unusually Disappointing!

    I received this book as a birthday present and, I regret to say, that I was forced to return it. This is the first Star Wars item that I was disappointed with, and I truly hate to say anything negative about that saga of all time. Yet it was saturated with useless and uninteresting information. (Who wants to know what George Lucas's first car was? Tell us more about Qui-Gon!) Well, may the Force be with us all from now on!

    rubbish dont bother

    recieved it as a christmas present, and trust me dont waste your money, this book isnt for star wars fans, it's for fans of the memoribilia and how it was made. for anyone who loves the films and the surrounding universe this book is pointless, reproductions of ticket stubs or magazine front pages are quite frankly not interesting

    A must for the Star Wars library

    I truly enjoyed all the materials within this 'vault'. A new fan will be engrossed in learning all the 'behind the scenes' information that made this saga great. The seasoned fan, while they probably won't learn anything new, they will enjoy re-reading the struggles & triumphs of George's vision & how it finally made it to the screen. They will also love all the facsimilie documents enclosed. The big treats were the CD's containing the different interviews of cast & crew members--that is a real treasure.
