That is why it's so rare. It's so rare that the editors of the official Star Wars Checklist poster (published in 1985) DID NOT include this on the poster. They put the two one sheets issued to advertise the soundtrack (style A & D) on the poster but not this mylar. Other smaller posters such as the Concert poster, the Howard Chaykin poster and the two NPR radio posters as well as the half sheet are all on the poster but not this - They must not have been unaware of its existence. EXCLUSIVELY MADE TO ADVERTISE the movie and the album in the record stores.
>>>NOT distributed to the public >> FEW SURVIVED! This poster measures approximately 22x33 inches and is printed on a mirror-like mylar stock in 1977. This poster damages easily so it is almost IMPOSSIBLE to find this one in this clean condition - if you can find it at all! It's a tough one to photograph, given the mirror-reflective nature of the piece, and so the photo isn't the greatest - but - you get the idea.
This poster was stored rolled up since 1977, when I obtained it. Amazingly, it ONLY had minor aging and a few minor dings and such from being rolled and unrolled for so many years ago, and so I had this poster museum linen-mounted to preserve it and make it easier to handle. It worked like a charm because the poster came out terrific! I used the best conservator in the USA. He ONLY uses high-grade materials, such as thicker linen and thicker acid-free Japanese rice paper.
The better materials cost more but make a real difference in the end result. It's flat as a pancake, even flatter. This poster was in ROLLED NEVER-FOLDED NearMINT CONDITION before I had it museum linen-mounted. Is an accepted form of poster preservation by the Library of Congress and every Museum in the country.A lot of advanced poster buyers request and prefer linen-mounted posters because it makes framing and displaying the posters much easier - without the risk of damaging the original. The white you see in the photo beyond that of the poster is the white of the Japanese paper lining the linen border margin. You can see how easy it would be to damage the original poster without that extra margin of protection.
The backing makes the poster much safer to handle - it GREATLY reduces the risk of damaging the original. Also, all of my linen-backed posters have been stored FLAT so they DO NOT have a curl to them - They're ready for framing and display!
