Two of my favorite Star Wars items are the books "Dressing a Galaxy" and "Sculpting a Galaxy."

Like the "Art of..." books before, I really love this idea of creating a high quality package that concentrates specifically on one aspect of movie-making.

I got to wondering what other books could/should be made in this line.


"Illustrating a Galaxy" with illustrations, storyboards, and matte paintings/CG backgrounds.

"Building a Galaxy" that examines all of the constructed sets and locations used in all six films.

"Hearing a Galaxy" from John Williams and Ben Burtt with CD/DVD inserts that break down the music and soundtracks.

"Selling a Galaxy" about the marketing for Star Wars, including trailers, posters, toys...

"Casting a Galaxy" that does a page or so for every Actor and Extra who appears in a Star Wars film.


Any more you'd like to see?

EU. Good idea, though I think that it would have to be a little more commercially positive than that. :)

Maybe "Expanding a Galaxy."

"Ignoring the Galaxy"

You walk around with your head to the ground, too busy with your own problems to worry about the whole Galaxy.

Maybe "Expanding a Galaxy."I like my title better.

I like the Casting a Galaxy idea. These are also among my favorite SW books.

Milking a Galaxy:

That title could be used to show how George has made a fortune off of one idea.

I like the original "Blanking a Galaxy" If you put it out of your mind long enough, it doesn't exist.
Or if your mind goes blank all of a sudden when you were just trying to explain the galaxy.
