Star Wars: Mos Eisley Cantina Pop-up Book

Hand-Drawn Ralph McQuarrie Artwork: Page Layout Sketch of Hammerhead

Stock #117240

A page layout sketch of Hammerhead hand-drawn by Ralph McQuarrie for Star Wars: Mos Eisley Cantina Pop-up Book. Published in 1995, the Mos Eisley Cantina pop-up book was a book released as part of a pair of children-oriented books. The book recalled memorable scenes and characters from the films, but also featured new artwork by McQuarrie. McQuarrie is widely considered one of the seminal Star Wars artists, having designed the look of Darth Vader, C-3PO, R2-D2, and countless other elements of the original film. McQuarrie was one of Lucas's first collaborators on Star Wars and created numerous concept sketches and production paintings that were used to convey Lucas's vision to those working on the film, and later used to market it. McQuarrie's paintings were published in portfolios that are well known to Star Wars collectors. He went on to work on all three films in the original trilogy and later did additional work for Lucasfilm in the 1990s, on The Illustrated Star Wars Universe project, and two Star Wars Pop-Up Books. Original artwork by McQuarrie is exceedingly rare and sought after by collectors.

The layout page serves as a mock-up for a page in the book. The sketch shows minimal signs of wear and remains in excellent condition.
