This is definitely on my shopping list, and will be of interest to others who like costume reference books: "Star Wars Costumes: The Original Trilogy" features all new photography of OT costumes and armour.

Who can forget the first time they saw Darth Vader with his black cape and mask? The white hard-body suit of the stormtroopers? Or Leia’s outfit as Jabba’s slave? These costumes—like so many that adorned the characters of that galaxy far, far away—have become iconic. For the first time, the Lucasfilm Archives has unpacked the original costumes to be revealed in breathtaking detail.

Featuring all-new photography, Star Wars Costumes: The Original Trilogy affords both new and longtime Star Wars fans the opportunity to examine the stormtrooper armor and discover how it changed from movie to movie; explore Boba Fett’s suit and inspect the rarely seen details of his blaster and jetpack; compare the helmets and jumpsuits of the rebel fighters; and study the details of the Hoth fighter uniforms.

This lavish large-format book not only showcases high-quality photography of each costume, it also pairs these stunning images with original sketches, behind-the-scenes photographs, production notes, and stories.

Brian Muir made a public post about the upcoming new costume book on his FB page - I am really excited about the new photography and interviews :D
A must have for Star Wars fans - featuring all new photography of the original costumes in the Archives, some new Behind the Scenes photos, and new interview content not just with the 3 costume designers, but with several dozen technicians, sculptors, painters, plasterers, seamstresses, dyers etc who worked on these costumes
