CULT has 2 copies of this very elusive production - The (un?)authorized Star Wars issue. This gorgeous production is a silver mylar book with paper changes, and filled with Star Wars art that was inspired by the films, and most of which is reproduced nowhere else. The book rests inside a large black plastic blister, which can be hung. This holder is sealed in plastic wrap, and then slipped inside a white, slightly crumpled shipping box from the publisher.
New copy: Unopened blister sealed in plastic, inside publisher's shipping box.
'Fine' copy: Opened for pictures and photography. Book is New. Black plastic blister has slight wear from storage.

From Derek Lerner, artist: 'In 2006 I was invited to create artwork for a Star Wars (film) themed publication of Hong Kong based Cream Magazine. I decided to make work about the Strategic Defense Initiative, a space-based anti-missile system, which was proposed in 1983 by President Ronald Reagan dubbed Star Wars.'
