In honor of “Star Wars Day,” a new visual museum for fans of the galaxy far, far away was released.

The “Star Wars: The Visual Encyclopedia” is a new book which breaks down everything from geography to culture across the Star Wars universe.

One of the authors say he hopes it will be a refresher for the die-hard fans, and a starting point for some just discovering the series.

“It is visual and we really started with images first,” said Cole Horton, one of the co-authors of the book.

“So it’s a 200 page book, it’s big, and in there you’ve got 2500 images that span the entire Star Wars saga, so the films as well as animated series and we even include references to some of the other storytelling,” Horton continued.

The team of writers worked for four months, and the editorial team spent nine months putting it all together.

Horton says the book does include some things about Rogue One, the most recent movie.  But there are also some things invented by the team.

“In fact, one of my favorite parts of the book is about language, and there’s multiple alphabets in there. So if you wanted, you could learn to read and write in a fictional Star Wars language as if it was real,” Horton said.
