This official Star Wars book of masks was released in 1983 as a tie-in for the film Return of the Jedi. The book features 9 cardboard punch-out masks depicting various characters spanning the original trilogy. The artwork – by Walter Velez – is colourful and enjoyable, sometimes even a little unsettling when you stare at these well-known characters and realise they have no eyes!

Here are the images of each page from the French edition. The book was also published in the US by Random House. A Japanese version, also from 1983, exists with a different cover featuring Jabba the Hutt.
