Amazon's lightning deal today is the following:

$49.99 Star Wars: The Blueprints with free shipping

Ships from and sold by Amazon.com.

Star Wars: The Blueprints brings together the original technical drawings from deep within the Lucasfilm Archives. Combined with insightful commentary from best-selling author J. W. Rinzler, the collection maps in precise, vivid, and intricate detail the very genesis of one of the most enduring and beloved stories to appear onscreen.
The meticulously researched text gives voice to the groundbreaking and brilliant engineers, designers, and artists that have, in film after film, created the most imaginative and iconic locales. Blueprints shows how in bringing this extraordinary epic to life, early concepts were translated into iconic sets—the rebel blockade runner, the Millennium Falcon, the bridge of General Grievous’s flagship, Jabba the Hutt’s throne room, and many others—thanks to the exquisite craftsmanship and artistry of successive art departments.

Special Features:
•More than 250 blueprints
•More than 500 photographs and illustrations
•Ten gatefolds

Personally, if I was more of a star wars fan, I'd get this, but I'm more of a FarSide fan. (Considering this is cheaper than the Far Side collection that I splurged on over 10 years ago, this is probably a decent deal to star wards fans) Pricewise, it seems decent. Hope this might help someone. Thank you for reading.

Excellent book. For the past two years, this book has been been on sale for 1/2 price at Amazon on May 4th. Star Wars Day - "May the 4th be with you". If you missed the lightning deal, you will probably have another chance to buy it for $30 next May.
