After several postponements, The Making of Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back ($51) has finally been released. Author J.W. Rinzler has surpassed his previous work with this edition, and like the movie it chronicles, it’s even better than the first. The 362 page book is packed with everything a casual or avid fan could ask for: behind the scenes accounts about the difficulty of making The Empire Strikes Back, technical information, top-notch visuals, production diaries and a foreword by Ridley Scott. Two words: must have. Read more over on Vanity Fair.
