Gentle Giant has announced that just in time for Father’s Day 2014, they will be releasing special editions of Jeffrey Brown’s comic Star Wars titles, Darth Vader and Son and Vader’s Little Princess. The special edition books from Chronicle Books will be accommodated by a limited edition, hand-numbered maquette featuring Darth Vader with his little Luke or Leia, sculpted in author Jeffrey Brown’s style by Gentle Giant artisans. No detail has been spared on the maquettes — a Rebel logo pattern was even added to the tie detail.
The included book is a 16-page signature with the original black & white concept sketches from Jeffrey Brown. These sketches have not been released to the public until now, and are exclusive to this boxed set. It also includes a new full color illustration from Jeffrey Brown printed on board and packaged in a vellum sleeve. The book cover and spine will also be printed with color foil stamps and spot gloss varnish.
