(20th Century Fox, c.1976) A very early prototype promotional booklet for "Star Wars". From the personal collection of Bill Wallen, who helped create promotional and advertising campaigns for the film, this booklet is hand-crafted with hand-trimmed photos applied to 3 attached art boards. Notably, the cover features a very early "Star Wars" logo that is similar to what was seen on some of the earliest pre-release promotional items. Regarding this book, Wallen recalls, "We needed something else to use to promote the film, and there wasn't a lot of original artwork or photos available to us. We were creating a book for exhibitor's using concept art and whatever else we could get our hands at the time". On a few of the inner pages, there are hand-drawn lines which act as placeholder markers for text to be added later. Measuring 11"x14" when folded, this impressive hand-crafted prototype measures 11"x42" fully opened. The condition is very good with some minor edge-wear from use.
