If you like books that offer a comprehensive look at the behind-the-scenes world of movie making, especially when it comes to the “Star Wars” movies, then John Knoll’s book is a good one to track down.

“Creating the Worlds of Star Wars: 365 Days” is a massive publication offering a one-year look at the movies. And, it comes with a CD-ROM that includes a navigable panoramic look at many of the photos.

Here are a few examples of what you can find:

Day 54: A look at the Echo Base hallways during filming.

Day 97: Photos of the Imperial Shuttle cockpit includes one with members of he crew seated in the chairs.

Day 190: Production photos of the Coruscant landing platform from “Attack of the Clones.”

Day 292: Examination of the massive set built for the Trade Federation bridge.

Today is the 303 day of the year and that entry has to do with the Jedi briefing room.
