40 years ago, Transformer
launched Lou Reed from the underground way up to Mars, with a little help from Starman Bowie. Mick Rock was there to capture Reed's flight on film, beginning with the iconic album cover and continuing through the wild side of the Seventies.
In 2013, Lou Reed, rock icon, artist and poet, collaborated with legendary photographer Mick Rock in one of the most visually exciting books Genesis ever produced. Now, for the first time since Lou passed, his limited edition is available again.
Mick Rock: 'I'm happy our relationship weathered the slings and arrows and outrageous antics of 40 years, enabling us to come together to produce such a beautiful tome.'
Lou Reed: 'When I saw the book, I was just overwhelmed. It brought back all that energy and all that virility. The book is like an energy bomb. And itís beautiful.'
"I received TRANSFORMER
this week, and a magnificent publication it is too. A really fitting document of two exceptionally talented people, and up to Genesis's superb production standards. I will treasure it for along time to come." - M. Whittingham, Subscriber, Singapore
Celebrating 100 titles across 40 years of publishing. Working with Eric Clapton, Sir Peter Blake, and the estates of George Harrison and David Bowie, some of Genesis's most sought-after books are reimagined as a collection of fine-bound pocket editions.
For all those that Imagine Peace, INFINITE UNIVERSE AT DAWN celebrates Yoko Ono's seminal art and activism across eight decades.
