    Description
    The skill, detail, exuberance and dedication of Costume Designer Trisha Biggar are showcased in a new book due out this Fall; Dressing a Galaxy: The Costumes of Star Wars.

    With over 300 photographs and illustrations, this book explores the costumes of the prequel trilogy. It's an amazing collection of diverse wardrobes -- the understated nobility of the Jedi robes, the avarice seen in the ostentatious garb and headdresses of commerce barons and Senators, and the beauty and history expressed in the details of opulent royal dresses. The most memorable costumes from The Phantom Menace, Attack of the Clones and Revenge of the Sith are covered, as are many of the thousands of handcrafted background costumes from each film (as well as select costumes from A New Hope, The Empire Strikes Back, and Return of the Jedi).

    Learn about the costuming process, from initial sketches to final fabrication. See the virtual costumes of the many digital characters. In addition to the astonishing costume presentations, the book includes commentaries by Samuel L. Jackson, Jimmy Smits, Keisha Castle-Hughes, Ewan McGregor, Hayden Christensen, Natalie Portman and other actors, offering memorable insights on what it was like to don these brilliant creations.

    Featuring a foreword by George Lucas and a preface by Rick McCallum, Dressing a Galaxy: The Costumes of Star Wars by Trisha Biggar is scheduled for an October 2005 hardcover release from publisher Harry N. Abrams, with design by Palace Press.

    guys, I just found out I can the the exculsive book. Costs nomarll 295 and comes with a Wookie Belt Buckle:

    More info here: HERE

    The skill, detail, exuberance and dedication of Costume Designer Trisha Biggar are showcased in a new book due out this Fall; Dressing a Galaxy: The Costumes of Star Wars in a numbered Limited Edition of 2,500 copies. This deluxe version consists of a cloth edition of 224 pages, and includes an additional 32 pages of Star Wars costume imagery printed on special paper and featuring six assorted bound-in booklets and inserts and eight additional gatefolds. Accompanying this collector's edition is a Certificate of Authenticity signed by author Trisha Biggar, and a cast replica of a Wookiee belt buckle. All this is housed in an elegant, padded clamshell case swathed in an embroidered ribbon displaying royal markings made from the same materials as Star Wars costumes.



    I will have to know ASAP on this. They can probably only get what is ordered and are limited. So the sooner the better on that one.
