The Vader Project: Art and Design

The Vader Project was an exhibit of 100 helmets that traveled through eight exhibitions and three countries, culminating in a massive auction and full-color catalog.

"The Vader Project is a reimagining of the iconic Darth Vader helmet curated by Dov Kelemer and Sarah Jo Marks of DKE Toys (dketoys.com). Kelemer and Marks gathered close to 100 of the hottest underground and pop surrealist painters, artists, and designers to participate. For this unique project each artist was given a 1:1 scale authentic prop replica of the actual Darth Vader helmet used in the STAR WARS™ films. The helmets served as a blank canvas for each artist to paint, design, mash up, and customize."

The Vader Catalog depicts each helmet with a bio of the artist who created it and info about the shows. It would definitely be a unique coffee table book.
