The reprint of the first ever book to exhaustively document the legendary unpublished photographic work of Peter Christopherson from Throbbing Gristle, Coil and Hipgnosis.
The first edition of the book published in November of 2014 and notably the 60th anniversary deluxe boxset edition published in 2015 sold out in record-breaking time and has already been fetching ridiculous amounts on the secondary market. The book has been met with universal approval. We think Peter’s visual art, as his music, should stay in print and be easily available to all interested parties.
This second printing is essentially the same book with a number of amendments, corrections and minor improvements. There is less than 5 % of new and unseen material in this book. A few images have been dropped from the original version. The content of the small book which came with the limited editions is obviously not included in this reprint and will stay exclusive to the limited 1st edition.
The b/w photos featured in the book run the gamut from personal fetishes to social commentary on 1970s UK, portraits of bands, friends and strangers. There are both snapshots and highly staged scenarios.
Foreword & short personal reminiscence by Thighpaulsandra.
Regular edition of 500 copies
