The Art of Ralph McQuarrie at Comic Con

The Art of Ralph McQuarrie is pleased to be making our premiere appearance at the San Diego Comic Con this year.

We will be showcasing Dreams and Visions Press' Japanese edition of Star Wars: The Art of Ralph McQuarrie, and as an exclusive for the convention we've produced a complimentary 32-page booklet containing an English translation of the Japanese text. This will be given to anyone purchasing the Japanese trade paperback, while supplies last. Limited to 500 individually numbered copies, what makes this volume particularly attractive is the previously unpublished Darth Vader concept illustration that graces the cover, which has not been seen outside of Ralph's personal archives for nearly 35 years.

In addition to the Japanese book, we will also have copies of our Ralph McQuarrie Star Wars Tribute Poster, with artist Lawrence Noble appearing in our booth throughout the convention to sign your copy. We will also have a limited selection of matted artwork hand signed by Ralph McQuarrie for sale.

The Art of Ralph McQuarrie will be located in the Lucasfilm Pavilion, alongside our friends from EFX Collectibles in booth (2913E). Stop by to see us, and check out the EFX Ralph McQuarrie Darth Vader concept helmet which will be on display at the show.
