On designing books for Return of the Jedi

Last month was the 30th anniversary of Return of the Jedi, the third (and then final) chapter in the Star Wars saga.

During the hoopla of its release two film-related books where published Return of the Jedi: The Illustrated Edition and the Return of the Jedi Sketchbook.

Ballantine Books had the license to publish Star Wars-related books and they were published under either the Ballantine or Del Rey imprint. Alex Jay designed the books and shares his process in Under Cover: Return of the Jedi.  Here’s a sampling:
