Published in a limited edition of 2,000 books, the first 350 copies of TRANSFORMER (numbered 1 to 350) are Deluxe editions, each signed by the authors Mick Rock and Lou Reed.
Deluxe copies include a 10" x 12" numbered Giclée print of the contacts from the shoot that produced the Transformer cover, signed by the photographer Mick Rock. Additionally, a limited edition 7" vinyl, a picture disc featuring the tracks 'Walk on the Wild Side' and 'Coney Island Baby' is enclosed.
Mick Rock: 'It's exquisite. I've done three books with Genesis and they've all been beautiful, but as a piece of art, this might be the finest.'
Lou and Mick's Transformer image is recreated by hand on the cover of this craft-bound book in black and white leathers, with gold foil detailing. Printed on heavyweight Italian art and trace papers, the book is finished with gilt page edging.
The large format edition (290mm x 390mm / 11.5" x 15.5") is presented in a cloth-bound solander case, with Mick's annotated contact strips inset.
