Make some room on the bookshelf: R.E.M.‘s Michael Stipe revealed he’s working on a series of books.
The works will focus on his life and time with his platinum-selling band. The photo book portion of the collection will be out later this year.
“It’s the first in a series of books I’m releasing,” Stipe told the Creative Independent. “This one focuses on my timeline, on the work I’ve done all along, all through the band and back to my early 20s. It’s all photo-based, but some of it’s just documentation of things I’m obsessed with and that I focus on to make new pieces from. There are also certain things I’ll take, recontextualize, and present as something completely different.”
A release date has not been announced.
