William Shakespeare's Star Wars, by Ian Doescher, is a retelling of the movie as presented by the Bard of Avon. It's published by Quirk Books, which is known for its fun remixes of classics (Sense and Sensibility and Sea Monsters, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, Android Karenina) but this book is kind of the opposite - a modern tale as told by a 16th century playwright. Nicolas Delort's woodcut-style illustrations are a fabulous mixture of old and new.
