Artist: Roger Kastel
Important Added Info: Note that this poster is commonly referred to as the "Gone With the Wind" style (because Harrison Ford is holding Carrie Fisher in his arms similar to how Clark Gable held Vivien Leigh in "Gone With the Wind"!)

Note that this poster needs to be shipped in a tube that measures between 42" and 44" long. Therefore the shipping for this poster will be more than that for a poster that ships in a tube 32" or shorter, and possibly much more. Please bear this added shipping expense in mind before bidding on this poster. What IS linenbacking? Learn More

Overall Condition and Pre-Restoration Defects with Quality of Restoration: good to very good. The poster was never folded. It had creases and scuffs scattered in the top center of the image above Ford's head, with a few in Ford's shirt below his head, with one entering the edge of Fisher's chin. It had some creases, tears, and scuffs scattered down the left 4". Overall, the poster was in good to very good condition prior to linenbacking. The poster was pretty well backed, but you can see signs of the above defects and the restoration of the above defects, especially when you view it from very close up.
