Book Description
An intimate look at one of the most creative artists at work today.

When it comes to making music, Björk needs no introduction. She has always been at the vanguard, exploding convention and leading her listeners down the uncharted paths of a haunting and harmonic trip through sound. Last year, she starred in Lars von Trier's acclaimed Dancer in the Dark, and took home the coveted Best Actress award at Cannes. A true artist whose work has consistently transcended creative and geographic borders, Björk turns every medium she touches to gold.

Her next project is a gorgeously produced, stunningly beautiful collection of photographs and text that is being published simultaneously around the world. Designed by Björk and m/m, the celebrated Paris design firm that has already collaborated Balenciaga, Visionaire, and Yohji Yamamoto, the book boasts contributions from the world's top photographers, fashion designers and video makers as well as original writing and artwork by Björk herself.

A breathtaking photographic odyssey through Björk's career, a stunning visual and literary companion to one of the most original performers of our time, Björk promises to be like no book you've ever seen. Coinciding with the release of her new album, Vespertine, and the supporting tour, this book is a must-have for Björk's admirers as well as anyone craving a touch of beauty for their bookshelf.

    Dissertazione letteraria e iconografica attorno la figura di Bjork. Forse l'ultima "artista universale" capace di far convivere in sè più arti: musica, cinema, scultura, letteratura, poesia. Il libro è curato nei minimi dettagli, partendo dalla carta finendo al lavoro di lettering. Doppia copertina in plastica morbida coperta da un'altra copertina mobile in tessuto, la quale riporta un racconto breve di Stephanie Coher dedicata alla Bjork di 'Venus as a boy'. E in più ci si diverte con un test su "quanto sei ossessionato da Bjork?", varie interviste, i sogni di Gondry, poesie e racconti di scrittori islandesi e poi ci sono le foto, tante foto, tante Bjork.

    Solo ed esclusivamente per i fan
