With the help of Maped Helix, Star Wars Collector Craig Spivey will showcase his extensive collection at the Nuneaton Museum and Art Gallery, including memorabilia from Helix’s original Star Wars stationery collection.
The rare products from Helix’s Star Wars range were discovered in 2015 at Craig’s home in Warwickshire. He had built the collection over 38 years and is proud to be part of the history of Helix. He will provide a selection of annotated notes to sit alongside the range, with individual items now fetching up to £500 on online auction sites.
Alongside the main attraction, Maped Helix have provided both financial and product support for their creative zones which will run throughout the Art Gallery across the event.
Craig Spivey said, “when stationery is used so regularly, it tends to get binned, hidden away or sold at a car boot. As such, the products have become incredibly sought after. Therefore, this may be your one and only opportunity to see such a collection of rare items in such a great condition. It’s a perfect chance for kids to see historical items such as these and it’ll be great for parents to take a trip down memory lane and see stationery they used when they were children.”
Parts of Craig’s Star Wars collection and Helix’s Skywalker-themed stationery will be on display at Nuneaton Museum and Art Gallery from 28th May to 10th July.
