Star Wars Reads Day is just around the corner, and I’ve been figuring out what exactly what we’ll be doing to celebrate it this year. While doing so, I looked over my post about last year and discovered my plans to share the posters that I had made as a fundraiser for our Friends Group. Um, yeah, so almost a year later I haven’t done anything with them. Time to change that!
I revisited the original images and tweaked them a little to a newer version that I like better. I had originally wanted Vader’s book purple, but I LOVED the contrast of red/black. What’s a girl to do but make two different versions?! And yes, the Vader stencils and the posters have their books positioned differently.
I should also point out that on the posters, the text behind each stencil is the first few script pages from the original trilogy. Leia has A New Hope, R2D2 has The Empire Strikes Back, and Vader has Return of the Jedi. Oh, and I should point out that R2D2 is wearing a monocle (it’s subtle, but adorable).
Please feel free to click on any of the images below for larger versions that you may download and use for your own purposes. If, for any reason, you’d like the original set, then just email me and I’ll send you whatever file you’d like.
Please don’t hesitate to let me know if you have any issues with the printouts. I recommend setting the text posters to print on Ledger paper, but tell your machine not to fit picture to frame. Yes, it leaves quite a border, but I call that white space a “natural mat.”
Have fun, and may the force be with you!
