Star Wars (oscars style, London Underground) Price: £525 | Size: UK quad - 40"x30" (trimmed to 40"x28") | Grade: Fine on linen | Year: 1977 George Lucas commissioned leading UK artist Tom Chantrell to create this design, which also ran as the US style 'C' design. This particular poster was printed for the first release of the film in 1977 just after it had won a clutch of Oscars. This particular copy was trimmed down for London Underground. Until the 1980's London Underground used the double royal size which is 2" smaller than the quad crown size used by cinemas. Now linen backed, it looks terrific.
