THE POSTER ART OF 'STAR WARS' - DAY ONE: SPIRIT OF ADVENTURE!
In countdown celebration to 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...
Kicking things off in explosive style is this superbly romantic image which inhabited continued US theatrical release screenings publicity (though presented in diminished B/W newspapers) into 1978, from Dan Goozee, showing Luke and Leia, against a backdrop of space conflict, swinging into battle against the cruel-looking Darth Vader. Beneath them, the kind of combat-fierce Imperial Stormtroopers legions we're likely to see in the upcoming EPISODE VII.
