5.0 out of 5 stars Terrific photos, gate folds, and interesting text...the Force is with this book! 28 Oct 2014
By David Alan Hall - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I was not disappointed upon opening my copy of Star Wars Costumes. Three great forewords by John Mollo, Aggie Rodgers, and Nilo Rodis-Jamero. Lots of informative text (much stuff I didn't know) about the costumes, and stellar pictures. Particularly love the gate folds. Vader's costume, for example, gets great coverage. And the photos were taken with an eye toward showing detail. Just perfect. I haven't read the entire book: I only got it today, but I knew at first glance this is top quality, destined to take its place among other great original Star Wars trilogy resource books like Rinzler's "Making Of" series and Star Wars Storyboards, just to name a few. This nice hardback book is long overdue, but we have it at last.

Excellent reference book for any fan of the costumes of the Original Trilogy. Beautiful photography, intriguing background stories by the creators. And finally, clear and large shots of the A, B, and Y wing pilot uniforms from Return of the Jedi. You will not be disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great study guide! 29 Oct 2014
By Matthew - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Great book, worth a five star review. I do have one issue, not sure why the author, continuity checker or editors decided to toe the company line but Andrew Ainsworth, who was the prop maker that assisted in the construction of the Stormtroopers, and was subsequently sued by George Lucas for selling sets of ST armor from what he claimed were the "original molds", was left out of the book. It's a shame that, giving he did work on the film used costumes, he was not given any credit. People may not agree with what he did, he DID assist in their creation. A great book for Star Wars fans young and old.
