No, it's a collection of photos (6 books) which were selected by Lucas. It includes his signature and was very limited and very expensive. $3k if I recall correctly?
I have a cheaper version, also with the 6 books but no wooden box and no GL graph.

There's one listed on Ebay right now for $7,500.00, which I honestly doubt it will ever sell at that price. But, just like Ben mentioned and as published in 2010:

Star Wars: Frames Book Set Features George Lucas’ Favorite Images

If you’re a Star Wars collector, hold off on buying any more Christmas gifts until after the New Year; you’ll be glad you did. George Lucas is releasing a deluxe edition of still frames from each of the six Star Wars movies that he personally selected over the space of a few years. After sifting through more than 200,000 frames per film, Lucas said this about the chosen images:
“Cinematography is not about technology. It’s about lighting, it’s about composition, it’s about taste. In the end, it’s about understanding your craft.”
Though it will set you back $3,000, the case itself is constructed from premium hardwoods, this limited edition case measures approximately 25″ X 14″ X 13″ with an extended base. The case features intricate wood inlays from a combination of Padouk, Meranti, and Bubinga, against a hardwood frame of Rubberwood. The finish is an environmentally sensitive water-based product, which provides exquisite luster and enduring protection. This case has outer pocketing to accept the full-relief sculptures of Darth Vader and Yoda, which were created exclusively for Star Wars: Frames. The books inside the case are accessed by means of an innovative spring-loaded storage and retrieval system. The centerpiece holds a numbered certificate of authenticity.

The collection will be available from shop.starwars.com beginning January 8, 2011. There are only 1,138 pieces available in this limited edition. For those of you who think this number is strange, it refers back to THX 1138, Lucas’s first film and a number that is featured throughout the Star Wars movies.

While the price is pretty steep and some people will accuse Lucas of simply squeezing more money out of his franchise, he spent a lot of into the preparation of this set. He and his crew viewed over a million frames of film over a two year period beginning in 2005. Lucas makes it clear that each frame must have significance, not only in the world of Star Wars, but in the world of film making. Even the positioning of the frames next to each other in the set carries weight, as he says they “complement each other.”

This is probably as close as you’ll get to seeing the world of Star Wars through the eyes of its creator. Whether you think the set is worth the money will depend on how big a fan you consider yourself…and how deep your pockets run.

yes, i saw the one listed on ebay - crazy price. i did see that there have been 4 (that i could find) that sold over the years on ebay - ranging in price from $3500 - $6000. but, because their not put up for sale very often, it’s hard to determine a fair market value....was hoping someone on this site might have additional insight
