Brian Hickey, who is an award-winning designer and content creator, has released an epic photo-book that any Star Wars fan will appreciate. Although, it will really hit home for those who were young enough to live through the release of the original films, and who in turn also collected the first ever Star Wars action figures and toys from Kenner.

Over the past five years Hickey has been recreating moments from A New Hope, The Empire Strikes Back, and Return on the Jedi on his social media accounts. Now, this work can be fully appreciated in chronological order via Brian’s new free to access photo-book, Star Wars: Creating Adventure.

This 396 page digital book features over 300 photos of Star Wars Kenner figures and toys recreating various key scenes from the original Star Wars films. What makes these images so amazing is the vintage feel Hickey creates while shooting, which he has based on the old Kenner packaging from the 70s and 80s to maintain a nostalgic look in the 21st century.

Fans can check out the book online for free over on ISSU. It’s highly recommended for fans of the original trilogy, and anyone over 40 years old. We’ve been fans of Brian’s work for years now, and have featured some of his recreations in our weekly Top 5 Artists features, so we know like minded fans will appreciate Star Wars: Creating Adventures.

You can check out a gallery featuring some of Brian’s work below, but make sure to check out the full photo-book over on ISSU.

Nick and I will talk more about this book on today’s episode of the SWTS, so don’t forget to tune into the Star Wars Time Show on a weekly basis via our podcast platforms or via YouTube if you prefer the livestream angle.
