A pair of Obi-Wan (Alec Guinness) costume designs by Oscar-winning costume designer John Mollo, from George Lucas' Star Wars: A New Hope. One page is a printed copy that was hand-coloured by Mollo, and matches exactly to an illustration seen in issue 23 of Starburst magazine. The other page is a printed copy of the same illustration, without additional work by hand, though it is signed by Mollo in blue ink. In his interview with the Starburst, Mollo explained, "George [Lucas] wanted Obi-Wan Kenobi to look like a cross between a monk and a samurai knight."
The coloured sketch has a fold line down the right edge and sticky tack marks on the front, while both designs show some minor edge wear and discolouration from age. Dimensions (each): 29 cm x 21 cm (11 1/2" x 8 1/4")£800 - 1,200
