If you love LP and you also adore Star Wars, then this is the perfect gift idea for you. Walt Disney Records is releasing a 40th Anniversary Reissue of ‘Star Wars: A New Hope Original Motion Picture Soundtrack’ on December 1.

The vinyl box contains 3 180-gram LPs along with a 48-page hardcover book. The LPs, of course, contain compositions by the five-time Academy Award-winning composer John Williams for the 1977 Star Wars film.

One of these pieces of vinyl offers a 3D hologram effect of the Death Star, which is hand etched by Tristan Duke of Infinity Light Science.

To appreciate it, you are advised to use a direct light—the torch from your mobile phone will do—and point it right above the vinyl. The other side of the vinyl has the 40th-anniversary logo also etched by Duke.

The hard book, on the other hand, contains a rare set of behind the scene photos including ones from scoring sessions. It also has two essays by Jeff Bond and Jeff Eldridge.

Bond wrote “Tuning up a Galaxy,” which is basically about how Williams changed film music and how the movies became phenomenal.

Eldridge, on the other hand, wrote “John Williams’ Journey to Star Wars,” which as the title suggests talks about Williams musical history.
