    Get ready for another trip to Tatooine! One of the most recognizable locations in Star Wars is set to be featured in a brand new reference book titled Star Wars: Exploring Tatooine, arriving August 30th. The book is being published by Insight Editions and written by Riley Silverman. The main draw of the book will be full illustrations by Studio MUTI, offering fans a new look at all of the iconic locations and characters of Tatooine. Accompanying the art are descriptions of what characters were doing on that part of the planet throughout varying points in Star Wars history.



    From StarWars.com:



    Of course, Tatooine has been revisited time and time again across all of canon. StarWars.com shared some pages from the book, showing depictions of events from all mediums, including television and comics. Here is a look at some of those pages and the book's cover!

    The art style feels reminiscent of classic Ralph McQuarrie art. While the art takes center stage, the details on each page are very interesting and informative. One panel in the Dune Sea shows Ahsoka Tano's ventures in saving Jabba the Hutt's son during The Clone Wars movie. The next panel down has Boba Fett and Fennec Shand taking the throne leading to their struggle in The Book of Boba Fett, with Cad Bane looming above it all.



    Then back at the home of Obi-Wan Kenobi, there are nods to the comics in a largely-forgotten about duel between Luke and Boba Fett. Later on, Vader and Doctor Aphra traipse through not long after Luke has left the scene. Speaking with StarWars.com, Riley Silverman shared the fun she's had with the book:



    Studio MUTI is an award-winning graphic design company based out of Cape Town, South Africa. They have done work with ESPN, National Geographic, TIME, and on brands like DC, Harry Potter, Dune, Fortnite, and more. Clinton Campbell, creative director at Studio MUTI, also spoke with StarWars.com and had this to say:



    We'll have to wait and see if specific details from the upcoming Obi-Wan Kenobi series are included. In the meantime, you can read about a 'new' location on Tatooine that the show is set to finally unveil here. Beware of some minor spoilers though.



    Star Wars: Exploring Tatooine will be released on August 30th and is available for pre-order now.
