    Description

    Star Wars: READ...and The Force is with You (American Library Association, 1983). Rolled, Very Fine+. Library Poster (22" X 34").
    Inspired by the success of the Star Wars franchise, particularly its ability to appeal to people of all ages and backgrounds, the American Library Association asked to use the image of Jedi Master Yoda in their new campaign. With the simple slogan "READ and The Force is with you," this poster became an instant success, making its way into thousands of libraries. Two years later, the ALA launched its award-winning READ campaign of posters featuring celebrities holding their favorite books, a concept doubtlessly inspired by this poster. The poster has edge wear and interior creasing.


    Estimate: $400 - $800.
