• Just in Time for New York Comic Con, Lucasfilm Announces the Discovery of BOOK OF SITH: Secrets from the Dark Side

      Tired of lurking in the shadows of the Jedi, waiting for a chance to seize control? At long last, the secrets of the dark side are being revealed. Whether you are a master or an apprentice, you can now fulfill your destiny with BOOK OF SITH: Secrets from the Dark Side (becker&mayer! On-sale: February 10, 2012; ISBN-13: 978-1612182612, ISBN-10: 1612182612, $99.00), a collection of Sith texts written throughout galactic history and gathered in one epic volume.




      A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away. Fragments of five essential dark side texts were passed among numerous Sith and JediDarth Sidious, Darth Vader, Luke Skywalker, Asajj Ventress, Mace Windu, Quinlan Vos, and otherswho added their comments to the pages. Through the years, Darth Sidious pilfered and secreted away these texts, along with various objects created by his most powerful predecessors. Using this collected knowledge, the Emperor wrote his own manifesto, a sixth text, as well as a preface for the compilation. Each original text sheds light on the plots, exploits, and philosophy of the infamous Sith Order.


      For years these texts and various accompanying artifacts remained concealed within a mysterious pyramid-like case. But now, with this recovered collection, all students of the Force can unleash the power and the madness of the dark side.


      BOOK OF SITH: Secrets from the Dark Side is headed for new generations of STAR WARS fans in a deluxe special edition produced by becker&mayer! in collaboration with Lucasfilm, New York Times bestselling author Daniel Wallace, and celebrated STAR WARS illustrators.


      BOOK OF SITH and THE JEDI PATH, which preceded it, are the first STAR WARS books that were conceived and developed as actual artifacts that originated in the STAR WARS galaxy, says Carol Roeder, director of publishing for Lucasfilm Ltd. Now both sides, dark and light, have the chance to learn from the powerful Sith Lords and the Jedi Masters who came before them."


      The 160-page book features a faux-leather cover with debossing and heat stamping. Five removable artifactsincluding a scrap of a Sith burial shroud, a battle map from the Great Galactic War, a diagram of Palpatines master plan, an Empire propaganda poster, and a note from Luke Skywalkerare tucked within the pages of the book. The books elegant design showcases original illustrations by acclaimed STAR WARS artists, including Paul Allan Ballard, Jeff Carlisle, Chris Reiff, Chris Trevas, Russell Walks, Terryl Whitlatch, and the illustrators of Aristia/Hive Studios. The book and two accompanying mementoesa Sith crystal and a Sith talismanare enclosed in a mechanized blood-red and black Holocron case, which opens at the touch of a button with flashing lights and sounds.
      When we started this project, we really wanted to delve into the Sith side of the story, says Jim Becker, president and publisher of becker&mayer! We tried to imagine what kind of history lay behind their pursuit of absolute power. And how the Sith would hide their secrets over time. The innovative package our team came up with in collaboration with Lucasfilm, including the incredible Holocron case, is inspired.


      As each Sith Lord rose to power and then fell, the knowledge he gained vanished with him. Or so it seemed Delve into the dark with BOOK OF SITH: Secrets from the Dark Side.
