1983 Star Wars Bookmarks by Random House

This Return of the Jedi bookmark set, made by Random House in 1983, is one of my favourite collectables and manages to tick three themes I love: Star Wars, books and art. I think the stylish artwork on this full set has a certain art nouveau element as well as comic book style. I’ve tried to research the artist(s) responsible but have had no luck and can only guess it was done by in-house artists employed by Random House – one of the largest trade book publishers in the world.
