The most iconic droid in the galaxy has been recreated in this week’s limited edition letterpress print. This design was created by warping/twisting/distorting the words from the complete opening crawl text from Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope. If you need a refresh:

“A Long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away It is a period of civil war. Rebel spaceships, striking from a hidden base, have won their first victory against the evil Galactic Empire. During the battle, Rebel spies managed to steal secret plans to the Empire’s ultimate weapon, the DEATH STAR, an armored space station with enough power to destroy an entire planet. Pursued by the Empire’s sinister agents, Princess Leia races home aboard her starship, custodian of the stolen plans that can save her people and restore freedom to the galaxy….”

Alright.... story time- If you've been following FiveSpotDerby for a while you may know that on occasion we will launch on Tuesday with a 'mockup' image of that week's print instead of photos of the actual print itself. This is because in many cases we don't actually print the design until the day it launches.  

The downside to this? Well, Tim (the owner at Quality Letterpress, the mastermind who helps bring every design to life every week) will often throw a certain color of ink, or type of foil or (as in this case) a sheet of paper down that looks so good... it surpasses the original. The problem of course is that we have already sold the design based on the mockup! Honestly, if I could have gone back and done it again, I would have used this paper for the full print run! 

This is a "One of a kind" print. It is the only 'R2' printed on this sparkling midnight blue paper. It was created by hand over the course of several weeks. We will never reproduce this design. It is hand signed and includes a letterpressed certificate of authenticity.
