For as long as Star Wars has existed, even before we knew what it was, there was news about Star Wars. Combine that with another favorite form of enjoying Star Wars and you get a new book from the New York Times called In A Galaxy Far, Far Away.

The New York Times has compiled its coverage, which began in 1973 with an article on George Lucas and the "space opera" he was working on and continues on through Star Wars: The Last Jedi. TheĀ 12" x 15" coffee table book contains articles, photos, reviews, graphics, obituaries, behind-the-scenes exclusives and more in pages recreated from over 40 years of New York Times articles.

Star Wars superfan, collector and ambassador Steve Sansweet was sent a copy of the book and gave fans a first look which is definitely worth a watch, especially for his reaction to a correction to an early article that "misidentified Imperial Stormtroopers and robots." and the NYT making the correction from Wookie to Wookiee.
