Over on Chris Trevas’ Facebook page we discovered a link to a rough cover image for the upcoming Death Star Owner’s Workshop Manual. There’s also a nice link to Haynes previews catalog which has the following preview page for the book.

UPDATE: Del Rey and Haynes have partnered together for this book and it will be released in the US and Canada in November.

Going through the edelweiss catalog, our Gungan spies spotted an interesting entry for a new owner’s workshop manual…for the Death Star. According to edelweiss, the book will be written by Ryder Windham and illustrated by Chris Reiff and Chris Trevas, the same team that worked on the Haynes Millennium Falcon Owners’ Workshop Manual. It also has a release date of November 5, 2013 which is pretty interesting considering how close that date is getting and the given the fact that there has been no talk of the book yet from official channels.
