Editorial Reviews

Review

"A gorgeous book brimming with photos, concert fliers, posters and the full story of the band, Nirvana: The Complete Illustrated History will make you feel like you were there, even if you weren't." - Campus Circle



"â?¿a feast for fan's eyes" - Spin.com



"But in this crowded field, Voyageur Press' Nirvana: The Illustrated History stands out. Collecting newly penned chapters from Cross, Gillian G. Gaar, and Mark Yarm, among other contributors, the book emphasizes the visual ephemera of Nirvana's career: photographs, concert posters, ticket stubs, t-shirts, infant onesies, even a casting call for the 'Smells Like Teen Spirit'" - Pitchfork.com

From the Back Cover

Nirvana unintentionally tore the music world asunder in 1991 with "Smells Like Teen Spirit." At the time, MTV and the pop charts were dominated by vapid hair metal acts and Michael Jackson. Nirvana represented a much-needed return to punk-inspired rock.
 
Two and half years after the release of "Teen Spirit," leader Kurt Cobain, age 27, killed himself and the ride was over. But for fans, the music—and the spirit—live on.
 
Here is the first ever complete illustrated history of the band. Performance and off-stage photography, handbills, singles, tickets, gig posters, and other memorabilia complement a narrative detailing the band's tumultuous history, as well as album reviews, a gear breakdown, and more.
 
The text is written by noted writers Charles R. Cross, Gillian G. Gaar, Bob Gendron, Todd Martens, Mark Yarm, Jim DeRogatis, Alan di Perna, Greg Kot, and Andrew Earles with stellar photography by Charles Peterson, Kevin Estrada, Jay Blakesberg, Ed Sirrs, Ian Tilton, and Steve Double.

Throughout the book Kurts favorite artists are discussed. I thought that was neat. Makes Yuri want to check out those bands!

I bought this as a gift for my dad on Father's Day and he absolutely loves it. I personally haven't seen it, but he was very excited to describe the handwritten list that Kurt wrote about his favorite artists. My dad has collected many Nirvana books and magazines over the years, but he was very impressed by the uniqueness of this book. I just might have to buy a copy for myself!
