Star Wars Books: Rogue One illustrated guides

Jan 19 2017

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story™ was released mid December 2016 and since then it has broken records to become the biggest film of 2016 in the UK after just 17 days on release. It’s clear that the Force could not be stronger with this latest release. 2016 has been a phenomenal year for The Walt Disney Studios at the UK Box office with Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, The Jungle Book and Finding Dory all in the Top Five, with each taking over £40M.  With the addition of Star Wars: The Force Awakens and Captain America: Civil War, Disney has released an incredible five of the Top Ten grossing films and, including Zootropolis and Doctor Strange, seven films this year have taken over £20M.

Publishers haven’t wasted time to bring out visually stunning and meticulously researched books to support the movies. London Mums’ favourite Rogue One titles are published by DK because they deliver the ultimate fan experience, providing readers with a wholly comprehensive look at the stand-alone film in unparalleled detail, covering everything from the new characters to the latest technologies and vehicles. These new books for young readers and adults are available in a variety of formats and utilise DK’s signature approach of combining high-impact art and photography with authoritative text.

book DK How to Draw

Book of the week is DK’s How to draw.

What both my 10 year old son Diego and I love about this manual are the easy suggestions to draw animals, people and places which are usually quite difficult unless you are naturally really talented at drawing.
