Star Wars - Ep V - The Empire Strikes Back

Lot # 735 - Entertainment Memorabilia Live Auction - Art Department Reference Binder

Stock #95759

An art department reference binder from Irvin Kershner's Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back. Reference binders, like this one containing design sketches and illustrations, were utilised in multiple departments during the making of the film.

This blue vinyl three-ring binder from the film's art department contains plastic sleeves and 50 individual printed copies of set blueprints, costume design sketches, storyboards, and pre-visualisation drawings made and distributed during pre-production. Several of these copies were hole-punched, dated, numbered, and signed or initialed by the original draftsperson of the illustration, including "R. McQuarrie", "JEJ" for Joe Johnston, and "John Mollo", before being copied. A sticker in the binder is marked "U.K. 2". The binder itself exhibits various signs of use and age, including a split at the bottom, a broken metal ring, and stains throughout. Dimensions: 31.75 cm x 28 cm x 11.5 cm (12 1/2" x 11" x 4 1/2")
