If you're going to give someone a sci-fi coffee-table book as a holiday gift, shouldn't it be one that's big enough to actually BE a coffee table? That's what your friends'll be getting if you love 'em enough to cough up the cash to wrap up a copy of Star Wars: The Blueprints.

The MASSIVE book is 336 pages and, combined with its cloth case, weighs more than 30 pounds. But it's more than just the size of the thing that's impressive—Star Wars: The Blueprints has more than 500 photos and illustrations, many of which have never been seen before.

Let Blastr's Andrea Feczko gives you an up-close-and-personal tour.

Only 5,000 hand-numbered English-language copies have been printed, and you can grab one for gift-giving for $500. Or, if you're the truly generous type, you can drop $1,000 and get one of the 125 of those copies that have been signed by the three surviving Academy Award® winners who shared the 1978 Oscar for Best Art Direction: art director Norman Reynolds; art director Les Dilley; and set dresser Roger Christian.
