THE POSTER ART OF 'STAR WARS' - DAY SIX: PAWNS IN THE GAME!
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...
The connective fibre-tissues between the Prequels and the Classic Trilogy fascinatingly get one step nearer with the evolution of the Clone Trooper legions towards their final destiny integrated as part of Emperor Palpatine's Imperial Stormtroopers.
