On May 8, Tom Waits and photographer Anton Corbijn are set to release a coffee table art book through German publisher Schirmer-Mosel. The book features 200 portraits of Waits taken over four decades by Corbijn and 50 more pages of Waits’ photography. The book features an introduction by director Jim Jarmusch and is included in a linen slipcase.
“It’s rare”, Corbijn said in a press release, “to take photographs of someone over a 30+ year period. Our work together developed totally organically and that’s a beauty in itself. We are very serious about our work but when it comes to working together, we’re like children resisting maturity. It’s liberating and a much needed legal drug.”
You can preorder the book here for $199. The pressing will be limited to 6,600 copies.
