“If you only read the books that everyone else is reading, you can only think what everyone else is thinking.”
With sound and lights, Star Wars: Build the Millennium Falcon brings the galaxy's most notorious ship to life in a detailed papercraft model. The kit includes 10 template sheets with die-cut pieces, a sound module, and LED lights to build a model of the iconic ship. The accompanying book examines the pivotal missions the Falcon has performed along with technical sidebars and notes on its crew members. Detailed diagrams and step-by-step assembly instructions help guide model builders in constructing the ship. The paper model is geared toward adults and should take approximately 8 to 12 hours to build.
- 3 LED lights illuminate the engines on the back of the ship
- 10 seconds of ship sound effects (ex. takeoff, landing, and the failed jump to lightspeed)

MZS.Press is the online arts bookstore founded by author, critic, and filmmaker Matt Zoller Seitz and directed by Judith Carter. It offers new, used, signed, collectible, and rare books on film, TV, music, photography, and the visual arts. The store was launched in 2019 on a different platform and has expanded to incorporate arts books published by MZSPress's private imprint: titles currently include Seitz's The Deadwood Bible: A Lie Agreed Upon and Dreams of Deadwood, about the HBO Western, and Walter Chaw's A Walter Hill Film.
Our deepest wish is to promote, encourage, and distribute work by small presses, academic presses, and individuals. Extraordinary work tends to get swallowed up on giant platforms like Amazon and Barnes & Noble. The store's inventory of nearly 1000 volumes is currently in the process of being reconstructed after its relocation from Cincinnati, Ohio, to Dallas, Texas. The titles featured here are personally selected by a group of curators and advisors, including Seitz, Carter, and an array of critics, artists, journalists, educators, publishers, and arts mavens who are known for their ability to suss out what Seitz's jazz musician dad liked to call "the good sh*t."
