For collectors and Star Wars aficionados, this history-making, extremely exclusive package will live on as a grand project devoted to the art and craftsmanship of a cinematic phenomenon. Star Wars: Frames presents an essentially photographic, and yet filmic, look at the cinema of George Lucas -- in glorious widescreen, presented as never before on large-format pages, over 1,400 images printed with the highest production values available to bookmaking.
"Cinematography is not about technology," said Lucas. "It's about lighting, it's about composition, it's about taste. In the end, it's about understanding your craft."
On Friday, September 9, 2005, George Lucas began frames selection with Mike Blanchard and J. W. Rinzler in an editorial suite at Skywalker Ranch. Sessions generally took place two to three times a month, until Friday, July 11, 2008. More than two years were then required to solve all of the production challenges presented by the project's exacting requirements. Star Wars: Frames is the result of several interrelated disciplines, as practiced by experts in their fields, all working in the service of one of the masterpieces of cinema.
