THE POSTER ART OF 'STAR WARS' - DAY FOUR: PORTRAIT OF A SITH!
In celebration of this week's UK release (14th October) of the beautiful new STAR WARS ART: POSTERS book, compiled by J.W. Rinzler, published by ABRAMS BOOKS, AFICIONADO presents some of its favourite art/poster pieces linked to the six films, and beyond...
Darth Maul, the fearless and lethal Sith Warrior craving the death of any Jedi whose path he encounters, would soon become a screen legend for STAR WARS villainy when "born" with EPISODE I. His original and striking art evolution, courtesy of Iain McCaig (recently back in the LUCASFILM fold as an adviser on EPISODE VII), would be used as part of a poster promotion in Finland, when the successful THE ART OF STAR WARS exhibition, encapsulating the first four films of the saga, would enter the European stage of its touring run in the early 2000s.
