And yes, the prints are officially licensed by Lucasfilm.

Part of a crowdfunding project on Makuake.com, these limited-edition woodblock prints were designed by artist Masami Ishikawa, engraved by master engravers, and handprinted by a master printer.

Years of study and craftsmanship go into producing works like these.

Fascinating and beautiful.
