“The Art of Star Wars: The Force Awakens” (Abrams, $40) is a hardcover book that will be available in stores and at online shopping spots the same day that “Star Wars: Episode VII: The Force Awakens” hits theaters. That’s Dec. 18 if you haven’t been keeping up with this blog.

The publication from Phil Szostak will feature artwork used to put the new film together. It includes work that started at Lucasfilm headquarters in San Francisco to art created during the filming.

It will also features interviews with members of the film’s creative team.
