star wars epic yarns

This trio of books based on the original Star Wars trilogy is like no other.  Crafted and written by brothers Jack and Holman Wang, each volume of Star Wars Epic Yarns features twelve needle-felted scenes from the three Star Wars films.  Each scene is narrated and summarized in one word.

The sparse narrative gives readers a lot to discuss (e.g., Why did the authors choose that word?  How is that word significant for that part of the film?  How does that word help tell the story?)

According to this post, it took between 20 to 60 hours to complete each Star Wars figure.  For more details on the hours and work that went into producing these extraordinary books, there are some great posts to read on Chronicle Books (top 5 things learned and the process), Apartment Therapy Family and the Wang brothers’ blog.  Be sure to check out their previously published Cozy Classics, such as Pride and Prejudice and The Adventures of Tom Sawyer.

P.S.  I won these books in a giveaway from Out With The Kids.  All opinions stated are my own.
