    Star Wars: Episode IV – A New Hope (Mokep)


    “A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away”

    A global phenomenon when originally released in 1977 producing (at the time) a multitude of related merchandise and marketing material, including some exceptional movie posters. Featuring a fantastic illustration, unique among Star Wars posters, this 1979 (first release in Hungary) Hungarian poster by artist Tibor Helenyi is one of the rarest designs ever printed for the film. Part of a series the artist made for each film in the trilogy, each poster came in both a full colour format and a monotone format, with the monotone versions (as offered here) considered to be the much rarer of the two. A first time offering for us, this example presents to excellent effect with minimal handling wear. Very much a favourite among Star Wars collectors and hugely collectable it represents an incredibly scarce item of Star Wars cinematic memorabilia. Hokey religions and ancient weapons are no match for a good blaster at your side, kid.”

    Trivia: George Lucas was so sure this movie would flop that instead of attending the premiere, he went on vacation to Hawaii with his good friend Steven Spielberg, where they came up with the idea for Raiders of the Lost Ark (1981).
