4 out of 5 rating. 1 Reviews
One of the very first "Star Wars" posters had no images at all just enormous block letters that announced, "Coming to Your Galaxy This Summer: "Star Wars,"" The rest is history. Now, 28 years later, the 350 most amazing "Star Wars" movie posters are collected for the first time. This compilation spans the surreal to ultra realistic, the campy to darkly serious: Darth Vader''s head exploding in a shower of camera parts; Anakin Skywalker casting an ominous Sith shadow; C-3PO and R2-D2 selling "Star Wars" shoes; Luke and Vader in mortal battle aboard the Death Star. Classic posters are joined with text by the world''s foremost "Star Wars" collector, Stephen Sansweet, and poster collector Peter Vilmur, behind-the-scenes stories from artists and designers, a scarcity guide to over 2,000 posters, and a bootleg identification guide. Exploding with color, "The Star Wars Poster Book" illuminates an unexplored corner of "Star Wars" history.
