In many ways, Star Wars was the film that brought poster collecting out the shadows — it was hit movie with many different styles of posters, some of which were made available through “fan clubs”. Flash foward today and there are Star Wars collectors worldwide! Presented here is a very rare silk-screen advance roadshow poster for the premiere of Star Wars on Shikoku, the 4th largest island in Japan. This hand-made poster features a minimal design on a bold blue field and is dated for one day after the Tokyo premiere. Likely only a few were ever printed — let alone survive to this day. If you are after rare posters for one of the most collectible of all films, this is your poster!
