Sansweet’s Star Wars: 1,000 Collectibles
If you’re interest in Star Wars as a hobby goes beyond LEGO, you may be interested in an upcoming book by Stephen J. Sansweet titled Star Wars: 1,000 Collectibles. Sansweet has the world’s largest personal collection of Star Wars memorabilia. Housed in Northern California at “Rancho Obi-Wan”, he along with co-author and principal photographer Anne Neumann, will be publishing the contents of the museum to book format. I’m pretty sure they’re not going to be able to include EVERYTHING, but it’s a good bet they’ll be showing the more notable pieces, inluding some LEGO statues. Here’s an excerpt from the article published at StarWars.com:
Star Wars: 1,000 Collectibles, due out from Abrams on October 1, 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.
