A stunning archive of the world's rarest Star Wars posters compiled by the legendary film franchise's original producer have emerged for sale.<br />

Oscar-winner Gary Kurtz pieced together the collection of more than 30 advertising posters during his time as director George Lucas' right-hand man.<br />

Mr Kurtz, a former vice president of Lucas' production company Lucasfilm who produced the first two Star Wars films, set about snapping up the most rare issues of posters used in cinema lobbies and on advertising hoardings.<br />

His collection includes posters in many different languages including Japanese, German, Mandarin, Italian, Danish and even Hebrew.<br />

The auction will take place in Calabasas, California, on October 1.
