The Force Awakens!

In true #ThrowbackThursday fashion, we have a real treat for you today! (We promise that there are no spoilers here)

Unless you’ve been hiding under a rock in some other galaxy, you’ll probably know that the new Star Wars movie is out today in the UK.

BUT….did you know that Souvenir Press published the first hardcover Star Wars book? Star Wars: From the Adventures of Luke Skywalker by George Lucas was published back in 1977 – the year that Episode IV: A New Hope, the first film in the franchise, was released.

This was followed in 1978 by Alan Dean Foster’s Splinter of the Mind’s Eye, from the further adventures of Luke Skywalker, based on the characters and situations created by George Lucas.
