Who has this awesome book?  Wifey got it for me two years ago  for Christmas and it is one of my absolute favorites

New copies run for over $100, Half.com usually has them for cheaper though

Hell yeah I've got one of these puppies!  Greatest SW reference book ever made.  It's basically the SW Bible...   8)

Definitely pricey, but very much worth it.  I picked mine up for the original SRLP of $125 or $150 (don't recall) way back when if first came out.  You've since been able to find them for a good deal cheaper though.  I've seen it on sale several times in the $60 - $75 range.

A definite must have for any SW fan!   8)

I must have this book. Is it still available in any bookstores, or can you only get it online at this point?

Thanks Matt. I'll have to check those stores around here too for it.

I just checked Amazon.com and they want $105 for a new one. I'm thinking with my b-day coming up in a month, this might have just jumped to the top of my want list for that.  ;D

Good News!

Prequel version of Chronicles is coming in December, plus a book showcasing movie posters!

Excellent news indeed, and both will be promptly added to my SW library for sure.  I love the original Chronicles - probably still the best coffee table SW book.  So it'll be nice to add the corresponding Prequel edition, despite my general lack of enthusiasm for those flicks (so far).

And who doesn't love SW posters?!  A nice collection of all the posters over the year in one place is going to be very cool as well.

Of course, the price tags are gonna be pretty painful.  What was the first one again?  Like $150, I want to say, but often on sale from $100 - $125, IIRC.

Regardless of the price tag, I can't wait for these!   8)

Time to start making my Christmas list.

Great news on the new Chronicle book.  Should compliment the OT one well.
