Lucasfilm has released a new book through Abrams, and it looks to be a must have for this holiday season.

Giger, Daniel Greene, Arantzazu Martinez, Syd Mead, Moebius, Paul Oxborough, Alex Ross, Anthony J. Ryder, Dolfi Stoki, William Stout, Dan Thompson, Julie Bell and Boris Vallejo, Scott Waddell, and Jamie Wyeth, Star Wars Art: Visions is a breakthrough tribute to the worldwide inspiration that is Star Wars.
