Photostory


Battlestar Galactica Photostory

This is NOT a book! It is the biggest and best full-colour photo-adventure ever. The complete spectacular universal movie! More than 700 exciting live-action scenes! Well, it's nice but I wouldn't exactly say "spectacular" or "exciting", But it does have a great shot of the famous 'Lights of Caprica' shot. Futura Publications Limited 1979.
