I can already hear the excited Wookiee cries as news of this week's Crave giveaway prize gets out. We're giving away "Star Wars Art: Posters," the fifth and final book in the George Lucas-curated "Star Wars Art" series.

The lavish new hardcover tome from Abrams Books contains dozens of reproductions of paintings, illustrations and concept art from all six "Star Wars" theatrical releases, as well as from animated television series, gallery exhibitions, video games, limited-edition posters and fan club exclusives. You'll see Luke, Leia, Darth Vader and the rest of the galactic gang depicted in every conceivable medium and style -- photorealistic, surrealistic, contemplative, campy.

Drew Struzan, the artist who created the posters for every "Star Wars" film, wrote the foreword for the 10.5- by-12.5-inch book. Roger Kastel, the artist behind the iconic "Jaws" and "Empire Strikes Back" posters, penned the introduction.
