Publisher's summaryEdit

The first complete companion to the adventures of Indiana Jones!

Indiana Jones: The Ultimate Guide is the definitive guide to Indiana Jones and his world. From the jungles of South America to the deserts of Egypt, from the precious Sankara Stones to the Holy Grail, this book uncovers, for the first time, all there is to know about the world's favourite whip-wielding archaeologist. Featuring stills from all four movies — including Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull — along with the television series, The Adventures of Young Indiana Jones, comic-book art and exclusive illustrations and maps commissioned for this book, the Ultimate Guide is an undiscovered treasure for every Indiana Jones fan!

Collectors Edition publisher's summaryEdit

Since Indy's debut in 1981's Raiders of the Lost Ark, fans have followed the adventures of learned scholar and hunky professor Indiana Jones. He is the unlikely action-hero who undertakes perilous adventures involving snakes, rats, spiders, and villains, in order to stop powerful, mystical artifacts from falling into the wrong hands. With a fourth installment underway, fans can brush up on their Indy knowledge and relive the archeologist's best--and worst--moments.

Packed with a wealth of information from all four movies-about the characters, movie story lines, ancient ruins and artifacts, the history, and the mysticism - Indiana Jones: The Ultimate Guide (Collectors Edition) provides fans with everything they need to know about the unconventional archaeologist and his world.

This collectors hardcover edition, limited to only 500 pieces, features a high-end synthetic 'leather' hardcover, six exclusive art spreads with tracing paper overlays, plus a special envelope attached featuring 6 high-quality photos from the films!

Behind the scenesEdit

For the original hardcover print version of the book, there are at least two printing variations. The most noticeable difference can be found on page 100, in a call out for the Greco-Roman facade of the Grail Temple: one printing of the book list the construction of the temple as 1000 CE, while the other printing incorrectly uses the year 1000 BCE.
