TRANSFORMER showcases several of Lou's album covers, beginning with Transformer - a lucky development that established Mick and Lou's 40-year friendship and became one of the most iconic images of modern music. The book also features unseen outtakes, studio sessions, spontaneous shots and friends including Andy Warhol, Mick Jagger, Iggy Pop and David Bowie.

Lou Reed: 'They're really beautiful and not just celebrity photos. It's an amazing collection of pictures.'
