Publisher's summaryEdit

Darth Vader: A 3-D Surgical [sic] Log presents a head-to-toe view of the galaxy's greatest villain. All of his systems—sense organs, biological implants, armor, computers, and more—are explained and explored with notes from the droids who performed the surgeries, call-outs, illustrations, and diagrams. As the pages are turned, Vader's inner workings are revealed within the die-cut window. When the book is closed, the layers fit together to create a complete model of the Sith Lord.
