I’d like to share a few notable paperwork pieces that I’ve picked up recently...

- Pre-release tickets for early screenings of Star Wars, Empire and Jedi - really pleased to have the set of 3.

- Star Wars Advertising, Publicity and Promotion pack from the UK, complete (unless anyone knows different?). Loads of great info on the early publicity campaigns and merchandising in here. 44p quad poster, anyone?!
