Inspired by the Force: 1,000 Collectibles

In early 2007 Abrams approached Lucasfilm for Steve Sansweet to write a “365 days of collectibles” type book. Using the photos taken by Alex Ivanov as a foundation talks began on how the book would look. Eventually the project was to mimic the book Rolling Stone 1,000 Covers: A History of the Most Influential Magazine in Pop Culture.

Having settled on a format, the book was subdivided into 5 sections: Play with It, Wear It, Eat It, Look at It, Use It. Are there any more broad categories that you could think of? Every item we picked fit in to one of these. Above you can see the progression of a packaged pre-made cake from the United Kingdom… and its final demise.
