Even peo­ple who have seen the lat­est Star Wars film mul­ti­ple times may not re­alise quite how in­tri­cate and care­fully thought out each ve­hi­cle de­sign re­ally was. This book will set them straight.

It de­liv­ers ex­actly what the ti­tle prom­ises: de­tailed cross-sec­tions of 12 ve­hi­cles fea­tured in the film, laid out across a se­ries of stun­ning dou­ble-page spreads. In­clud­ing ev­ery­thing from Rey’s speeder to the First Or­der’s TIE Fighter and the Re­sis­tance X-Wing, as well as the Mil­len­nium Fal­con, th­ese il­lus­tra­tions let you ex­am­ine minute de­tails such as de­flec­tor shields, com­mu­ni­ca­tions an­tenna and blaster can­nons to your heart’s con­tent.

Be warned, though: at just 47 pages, this is a slim vol­ume. And while it takes a com­pre­hen­sive ap­proach to its sub­ject mat­ter, it doesn’t fea­ture any be­hind-the-scenes de­tail of how th­ese de­signs were cre­ated by artists. In short, this book is aimed at fans not artists, so only buy this if you’re the for­mer as well as the lat­ter.

Take a peak in­side the work­ings of a First Or­der TIE Fighter. The book cov­ers all the main ve­hi­cles from The Force Awak­ens.
