    Star Wars (20th Century Fox, 1977). Original Tom Jung Pencil Half Sheet Concept Artwork (30" X 24") and Half Sheet (22" X 28").
    Just when you thought you had seen everything, this amazing artifact arrives after being hidden away for forty years. In 1977 20th Century Fox commissioned an ad agency to produce the campaign, including posters, for their forthcoming film Star Wars. The agency had used artist Tom Jung previously and asked him to come up with concepts for the campaign. He was given photos taken by unit photographers in color and black and white as well 2.25" still images printed on contact sheets. Jung came up with the wonderful design for the now famous Style A one sheet as well as the designs for the insert and half sheet posters. This amazing piece is the original concept artwork used to pitch the half sheet design to Fox, George Lucas and company. Included is the hand drawn pencil sketch (22.5" X 14") by Jung as well as a stat of the Star Wars logo and credits rubber cemented in place and Form-a-Line used to create a border on a piece of illustration board (30" X 24"). There is an overspray of white gouache used to create the star effect onto the sketch. In the upper portion of the art one can see bleed through of rubber cement used to adhere the artwork to board. Two pieces of the Form-a-Line used have been lost and there are scuffs and wear to the display board. The artwork is known to be authentic and would be a wonderful addition to a Star Wars collector's universe. Also included is a rolled copy of the original half sheet which was produced from the concept. It has two missing corners and wear and tear to the border. Very Fine- on Cardstock.
