Dark Lens by Cedric Delsaux, A new Star Wars Art Book

That sound you heard is either my jaw hitting the floor or an AT-AT walking down the freeway behind you. 

In what appears to be a trend in publishing, we are seeing another high-end non-fiction book being published related to Star Wars.  

This time it is a book of art by French photographer Cédric Delsaux, entitled Cédric Delsaux: Dark Lens.

The 118 page book is due out October 31, 2011 at a list price of $70.00, but has it for pre-order at $47.25.  

 The Maker himself, George Lucas will be providing an introduction to the book.

The book is due to be published later this year and has an introduction by Lucas, who writes: “Over the years, many artists have interpreted Star Wars in ways that extend well beyond anything we saw in the films.
“One of the most unique and intriguing interpretations that I have seen is in the work of Cédric Delsaux, who has cleverly integrated Star Wars characters and vehicles into stark urban, industrial – but unmistakably earthbound – environments. As novel and disruptive as his images are, they are also completely plausible.”
