From the publisher, Abrams:

Star Wars: 1,000 Collectibles takes the reader on a journey through cool and kitsch, from toys and costumes to life-size statues made of LEGO bricks to consumer goods such as candy, clothing, toothpaste–and much more. Drawn from the largest private Star Wars collection in the known universe, this stunning treasure trove of memorabilia and colorful anecdotes mixes fun with nostalgia, delighting both the casual fan and the serious collector. Since the first Star Wars film opened in 1977, George Lucas’s epic space fantasy has become not only one of the most successful entertainment franchises of all time, but also an obsession for collectors around the globe, who have spent more than $15 billion on Star Wars merchandise.

These collectibles range from the offbeat–C-3PO tape dispensers, fan-made bantha pinatas, and Darth Vader popcorn poppers–to the everyday–Boba Fett cake pans, Yoda PEZ dispensers, and “Cream of Jawa” soup. Here for the first time is a chronicle of the constantly expanding, all-encompassing, often-surreal lifestyle of collecting Star Wars–filled with incredible stranger-than-fiction stories from the galaxy’s foremost collector.
