Spend a year, and beyond, with the art of Star Wars. This unique oversized calendar transforms into frameable, 16 X 20-inch art prints that can hang in any galaxy.
Celebrate cinema's most beloved saga and the influential visual artist Ralph McQuarrie, who helped breathe life into a galaxy far, far away. Selected from the archives of Skywalker Ranch, workplace of film director, writer, and producer George Lucas, and printed for the first time ever on archival, poster-sized paper are 13 spectacular production and portfolio illustrations created by McQuarrie for the original three Star Wars films, Episode IV: ANew Hope, Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back, and Episode VI: Return of the Jedi. The reverse pages offer draft scenes from the original scripts, quotes from McQuarrie, and other major insights into each illustration. Two hanging tabs attached at the top of the calendar allow for ease of hanging from a wall, and as each month comes to an end, calendar grids found at the bottom of each page can be simply removed to transform each illustration into stunning, 20 x 16-inch landscape art prints ready for framing and wall display.
