This obscure Star Wars book has for the most part, gone under the radar. At the time of purchase it wasn’t even available on the English Amazon when searching for Star Wars books.

If you’re a fan or collector of Star Wars books, you won’t need to read a word of french to love this one. At the time of writing, there has not yet been an English adaptation of the original French version, which is a little disappointing and no news as to whether that situation will change in the future.

The good news is if you’re a fan of Star Wars art, you can purchase this book for the artwork alone.

Star Wars Le Côté Obscur is a hardcover book and surprisingly heavy (3.4 pounds) — similar in size to Star Wars The Art of The Last Jedi. The book features many dark side characters from Quinlan Vos to Kylo Ren. There’s a total of 219 glossy pages and 50 pages of stunning art from various artists including legendary Star Wars artist Brian Rood. It’s a beautiful book to behold and definitely not to be overlooked by any serious Star Wars fan.
