"A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away...."

The iconic phrase which started the Star Wars movement more than 30 years ago which was to become a worldwide marketing phenomenon. Followers of the movies needed guides, maps and encyclopedia to unravel the mysteries of this complex universe. The 'Essential Atlas' provided a base from which to move around this story in a visual manner.

The commission was to turn 75 strangely named planets to colourful, intriguing places. All the planets were produced in 3D to a high resolution utilising many interesting plug-ins to achieve some very weird (but necessary) looks.
