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.
