Register for Spirit of Talk Talk book
We’ve just opened registrations for a new book celebrating the music and art of the legendary band Talk Talk.
Spirit of Talk Talk will be a richly designed and beautifully illustrated volume packed with the band’s signature cover artwork. Celebrated illustrator, and Talk Talk cover artist, James Marsh has remastered and chronicled all of the iconic artwork that he produced for the band throughout their 10 year reign in the 80’s. The book will feature James’ original cover concept sketches, hand written lyrics from Mark Hollis, as well as various ephemera, posters, and related items of interest to fans. There will also be lovely unseen photos of the band from 3 sessions with photographer Richard Haughton.
Renowned rock music writer and enormous Talk Talk fan Chris Roberts is writing the main essay and there are also 80 written contributions from bands, label owners, DJs and creatives, all of whom have been inspired or influenced by the music and art of Talk Talk – including Elbow’s Guy Garvey, Depeche Mode’s Alan Wilder, Weezer’s Patrick G. Wilson, Pink Floyd’s Rick Wright, Arcade Fire’s Richard Reed Parry, author Luke Rhinehart, presenter Mark Radcliffe, designer Wayne Hemingway and artist Sir Peter Blake to name just a few.
