So I think this is okay to post since I’m not affiliated and it’s a legit part of graphic design history that often gets overlooked (toy packaging!) BUT please redirect me if inappropriate.

These are few pages from a book that covers the design and production of the original 1977 Star Wars toys.

I haven’t seen it in person, but it seems to be a decent balance between concepting and development of the art as well as some of the nitty gritty production art details.

Anyone know of similar process heavy books like this? Toys or not? Or even forums that dig into archival design process?

r/graphic_design - Geeking out about this book that overlaps two of my favorite things - Toys and Graphic Design.

Here’s the kickstarter I pulled these from. The author’s a Sweden based Art Director!
