CLASSIC ART: CARRIE AND THE 'FEMME FATALES'
A true cover star in every sense of the word, Carrie Fisher and her STAR WARS alter ego in Princess Leia Organa remain all-time favourites, deserving her place of honour in an exhaustive career tribute feature that was part of a terrific issue of the popular celebration of all cult film, TV and media ladies that was FEMME FATALE magazine. This well-timed issue, from 1999, would make the most of the then recently released STAR WARS SPECIAL EDITIONS and the newly arrived Prequels. Its a shame the magazine is not around now to cover the great and varied new heroines of the sequel and anthology universe.
The terrific cover art is by David Voigt, who contributed many pieces not just to FEMME FATALES but also sister filmmaking magazine CINEFANTASTIQUE. Let's hope someday this piece becomes available as an art poster.
