STAR WARS RETURN OF THE JEDI (1983) rare original UK advance quad movie poster. Measures standard quad size of approx 30 x 40 inches. (Stored both rolled and folded). Printed in England by Lonsdale & Bartholomew Ltd Nottingham. Very rare original UK cinema advance teaser version of the quad for Star Wars - Episode VI - Return of The Jedi.
The film was released in May 1983 but these posters were actually printed in late 1982 as teasers to pique interest for the upcoming film (the 1982 date being visible in left-hand side corner near the bottom edge). This quad uses the same artwork that was produced by artist Drew Struzan and famously used on the early U. One-sheet teaser which had the original title for the film of'Revenge of the Jedi'. The title was changed in time for the quad teaser and this has the correct title.
The artwork works very well in the quad's landscape format, and it is better suited to it in my opinion. And far scarcer than the standard quads. Overall condition - very good/excellent. Displays really well as can be seen.
Some minor wrinkling and surface-creasing in places. So as to prevent any more stress to the fold lines, this poster will be posted rolled. I have taken several photos so that all areas of the poster can be viewed in detail. Please also see photos for your own appraisal of the general condition. Any questions or further photos required please ask.All the items I send will be very carefully packaged using strong and secure posting materials. I know people are very concerned about how something they've just bought will be packaged - especially if it's valuable and rare. I also know all too well the disappointment of receiving something damaged in the post because of lazy, cheap and shoddy packaging. So, therefore to assure my buyers that their goods will be carefully packed, I will explain in detail below how I prepare and package my items.
FLAT ITEMS such as folded posters, lobby cards, press books, etc, are put into polythene sleeves and then placed between two pieces of THICK card before being sealed in a'Do Not Bend' envelope. The extra card will make this package an absolute minimum of 10 mm thick to prevent bending. ROLLED POSTERS are placed inside a sleeve of polythene tubing and then put into a 3 inch diameter tube which has strong 2.5 mm thick walls. The poster will be cushioned at both ends inside the tube with tissue paper or bubble wrap, etc, to prevent movement.The ends of the tube will be tape-sealed on the outside. LINEN-BACKED POSTERS and irregular sized or shaped posters will be rolled in kraft paper, and then bubble-wrapped. Depending on the type of poster the tube may be anything between a 3 inch and 6 inch diameter. All tubes will have minimum 2.5 mm thick walls. OTHER MISCELLANEOUS ITEMS such as collectable figures, props, etc, will be bubble-wrapped and cushioned with crushed paper or something similar inside a sturdy cardboard box. ANYTHING SEALED inside any package (polythene sleeve, cardboard, bubble-wrap, etc) is done with masking tape. I find this is strong enough to seal securely, but the low stickiness of it means it is easy to remove, and therefore will not cause any damage by accidentally sticking to the item. Multiple items of the same type I.
