There are few symbols as iconic as the Star Wars logo. Just looking at it brings a sense of romance and adventure. But it went through a lot of variations before becoming the sleek piece of text we know today. Here's one video that sums up the whole process, including some weird offshoots.

Check out an excellent blog post over at Tenth Letter of the Alphabet, which goes into way more detail about all the variations the original Star Wars logo went through, both before and after the movie came out. Including tons and tons of art, some of which you probably haven't seen before. We took that stuff, cleaned it up, and put it in the 40-second video you see above.

And in case they're going by too quickly for you, here are all the images in the video above:
