Here is a few colouring books that I have. I apologize for some of the pictures. They are not blurry, they are still in the original factory sealed plastic and it's hard to get a good picture. I can't find anywhere on the opened ones, who they were printed by? All that is on them is © 1977 Twentieth Century Fox Film Corp and ™ General Mills Fun Group Inc.

Great selection of art/sketch/colouring books there Clint. Love the movie still covers in the post before your last. The Canadian French text ones add even more character. Thanks for sharing Cool

Cool selection of paperbooks there, Clint. Really like some of those cover artworks too. Are any of the artists credited?

Hey Paul

Glad you are enjoying the books.
These books are all from one original owner (me). They are in great shape except I wrote my name on the inside. :I am stupid:

From what I can see:

Han Solo at Stars' End - no cover art credit
Han Solo and the Lost Legacy - Cover art by William Schmidt
Han Solo's Revenge - Cover art by Dean Ellis

Lando Calrissian and the Starcave of ThonBoka - Cover art by William Schmidt
Lando Calrissian and the Mindharp of Sharu - Cover art by William Schmidt
Lando Calrissian and the Flamewind of Oseon - Cover art by William Schmidt

I also have a copy of Splinter of the Mind's Eye which Hyver already posted and the cover art for it is by Ralph McQuarrie.

I have more to post when the stuff comes out of storage. Very Happy
Thanks

Clint

Thanks, I wanted to get some names together as I was curious about the early artists who made covers for SW books and records.
I think there was a large pool of artists around the world who did these covers + posters etc. Most seemed to be fantasy artists for hire. For example Jean Frisano did some of the French work. John Berkey and Wotjek Siudmak did early work too. And just about everyone knows the great McQuarrie. Now I can look up Ellis and Schmidt Smile

Paul, that's an interesting idea. Very Happy I would like to see where that leads too. Maybe there is some original Star Wars artwork by these artist out there that can be picked up for cheap. That would make an interesting "World of Odd" focus.

Bootleg version
The seller said that it is:

1981 The Star Wars Storybook from Thailand. Size 21.6 cm x 27.9 cm x 0.5 cm thick (8 1/2" x 11" x 1/4" thick)
It has a nice glossy front and back cover, but the inside pages are news print. Same number of pages as the licensed version. Some of the pictures have been rotated. lol!

Don't know of any Thai SW stuff out there apart from some movie posters. Good chance it is bootleg as seller said.
Does the licensed version have glossy inside pages and colour pics?
You could try posting it in the Outer Realm see if any of them know of it there? Cheers for sharing, Clint, it's a cool little foreign book anyway Cool

The Star Wars storybook was from a collector in province of Quecbec.  So I'm assuming it is the French Canadian version.  I can't seem to find any information about it.  If anyone else can help, or has any more information, it would be greatly appreciated.  Now to find a copy of the Empire Strikes Back, French edition. Very Happy
