Original poster of the film Star Wars (Star Wars) designed by Georges Lucas: style D designed in 1978 by Drew Struzan and Charlie White.
This original poster from the film Star Wars is model D, known as the circus model. Designed by Drew Struzan and Charlie WhiteThe two artists' original work is on display at Georges Lucas' home, who claims it is his favourite poster.
If the film is from 1977, this poster is from 1978. It was in fact created at the beginning of the summer of the following year, 18 months after the release of the film, in order to breathe a breath of fresh air into the many cinemas where it was still shown because of its success.
The work of Drew Struzan and Charlie White is a remarkable play on the very notion of posters and displays. The design is actually a mise en abyme, a poster within the poster: it gives the illusion that the main motif is savagely plated on older posters, peeling off to reveal a plank of wood underneath. The concept was actually born out of necessity: the artists realized they didn't have enough room for all the credits and therefore had to find a way to create more space.
This is the first poster of the legendary Struzan poster designer for the Struzan franchise Star Warsbefore designing many more for Lucas Film over the next 35 years.
