Description

Star Wars (20th Century Fox, 1976). Autographed Howard Chaykin Promotional Poster (20" X 29").
Printed in the summer of 1976 to be sold at the Comic Con in San Diego and the WorldCon in Kansas City, with artwork by the Marvel Comics artist Howard Chaykin, this was the first of what was to be a series to be used to promote the upcoming release of George Lucas' science fiction epic. Chaykin produced the artwork working from a handful of stills and paintings by concept artist Ralph McQuarrie, who designed the early Star Wars logo seen on the poster. There were about a thousand of the posters printed and of that number assuredly few have survived to this day. Rare and with dazzling artwork, this is one of the most desirable of the early Star Wars collectibles. Signed by the artist. From the collection of the late John L. Williams, noted Star Wars collector. Rolled, Very Fine+.
