Friggin awesome aren't they?

Max your browser and take screenshots (Command-Shift-3 on Mac, who knows on Winblows and copycat-loser-OS Android....)

Actually, if you go to the landing page of the auctions - https://profilesinhistory.com/auctions/hollywood-auction-89/ -  there are links to see the flipbook online as well as in PDF format.  Just select PDF, let the browser load it, then click on "Download" button !

Too bad the "Price realised" doesn't work !
Looking for East African movie posters at fair price to complete my portfolio, if you have any in stock, let me know.  Thanks

New character posters for The Last Jedi. I wonder if they'll make it as printed one sheets? Or digital or bus shelter only?

Thy remind me of that matrix reloaded character set

Not very inspired, but I guess if I see them I'll get them.

I'm sure all the red means something but I don't care that much.

We can all agree they beat this:

As much as I love Star Wars, it is with a heavy heart I agree with this statement.  :'(

My only hope is that they won't be printed so I won't have to buy them.

This poster was produced for the 1978 summer re-release of Star Wars. Charlie White III and Drew Struzan painted it. Struzan would go on to be one of the most prolific Star Wars painters for Lucasfilm creating more posters, book covers, and various other artwork. This was, I believe, his first piece of Star Wars work. Struzan has said in the past that he worked on the character faces while White worked on the other parts of the painting.

Struzan: "I will never fail to give credit to Charlie White for what he did for me. It may have been a small thing to him, but a life changer for me. He is an extraordinary artist famed for his airbrush work. He had the desirable assignment to do the one-sheet poster for the re-release of Star Wars in 1978. He is marvelous at painting objects, but was hesitant to paint portraits for the poster. Somehow, he asked me to paint the portraits while he would paint the droids and the like...Only an extraordinary individual does anything so generous and unselfish. It is the individual who deserves the honor. I have no doubt that there was a desire on Charlie's part to do the best job possible on the Star Wars project...It was to his advantage to use the best talent he could find. He also gave the lettering to a great letterer. It made for an outsanding poster. All of us who worked on it have been proud ever since to have had the opportunity. It remains a perennial favorite, even among Hollywood executives. --Airbrush magazine August 99. Interview with Struzan

The Style D poster is reportedly one of George Lucas' favorite Star Wars posters. The original artwork for it is said to be hung in Lucas' house. He liked the circus poster feel of it. The poster looks like it is peeling back to reveal a wood fence underneath. It is one of the few posters to feature the Jawas, the landspeeder, and the stormtroopers, not to mention Darth Vader with a Dracula-type cape.

The novel idea of making the poster appear as if it were pasted on a wall came about almost by accident. "We had already done the lettering of the title, painting it in as part of the poster," recalled Struzan. "Then, when we got the billing, we discovered there wasn't enough room for all the credits, so we had to figure out a way to make more space. We thought, 'Why don't we take what we already have and paint it to look like it's wild posted on top of other posters?' That gave us the extra room we needed for the billing at the bottom. It was a case of Necessity being the Mother of Invention." ..."We had to do other art to fill it out, so we had a chance to include more characters. We added Han Solo in a little vignetted circle, and Alec Guiness was an afterthought. It kind of grew to include everybody." --Cinefantastique Feb '97

I saw that.  So ridiculous.  I own the much rarer PG version, rolled and mint.  Maybe I can get $10k for it.

Hahaha!

Ever wonder why the Thai poster for the original STAR WARS has the title THE WAR OF THE WORLD on it? I came across this great little article a little over a year ago about the first screenings of the film in Thailand. You will enjoy what you read!
