A photograph of the book's frontis page.
For the Roleplaying game Star Wars: Edge of the Empire, Fantasy Flight Games asked to Edge Studio for some illustrations that match the design of the book. The book is focused a specific part of the Star Wars universe, that of smugglers, bounty hunters, and other outsiders, and these pieces of artwork reflect that focus.
Boba Fett's helmet with the 2 suns of Tatoo star system. The curve of the helmet reminds the viewer of a planet. It also symbolizes the Edge of the Empire, where bounty hunters, smugglers, scoundrels, and characters who tend to operate outside the bounds of Imperial law make their home.
This is one of the first concepts for this frontis page, with a yellow logo inspired by the Star Wars logo.
And this is the final version approved for the project.
This illustration was inspired by the first frames of Episode IV. The idea is to make a short presentation of the book. The black strips are an element used to increase the panoramic view and they make a funny homage to the film. 
This is the original concept, with the classic 3D text crossing the screen. For the book, the idea was to put part of the text above black strips.
At the end, the text was very short, and the moons of Tatooine were removed from the illustration. 
This illustration depicts a spaceship leaving Tatooine with the 2 binary Tatoo star system, part of the Arkanis sector in the Outer Rim Territories, in the background. It was created for the endsheet of the book.
