Graham Nash Extremely Limited Edition Handmade Book Release
Graham Nash is one of popular music's most legendary artists, celebrated for his work as a solo artist, with Crosby, Stills & Nash and with The Hollies. Nash has been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame two times—with CSN and The Hollies—and into the Songwriters Hall of Fame.
He is also an acclaimed photographer whose work has been shown worldwide. The images spotlighted in Love, Graham Nash are ones taken in the 1960s and 1970s, a period that Nash's era-defining artistry helped shape. Portraying friends, family, and fellow musicians, they capture the essence of a momentous time in American culture.
Hand-bound in African Bubinga wood, the set's main volume contains an introduction by Neil Young, 21 bound photographs, lyrics from 17 classic Nash songs, and an exclusive companion CD. The lyrics are reproduced as facsimiles of their original manuscripts—on hotel letterhead, torn notebook pages, and other ephemera. The book is signed by Graham Nash, David Crosby, Stephen Stills, and Neil Young. The second volume collects letterpress transcriptions of the lyrics, and an exquisite portfolio of nine free-standing photographs, each signed by Nash.
"During the time I've spent exploring the work of Graham Nash, I've come to understand his vision as a songwriter, performer, photographer—and friend," said Steven Albahari, Publisher. Love, Graham Nash is the result of more than three years of collaboration with Graham.
An extraordinary cultural artifact, Love, Graham Nash is a work of art in and of itself. It merges the time-honored traditions of fine book making, dry-trap and letterpress printing, and photographic illustration with the most sophisticated modern printing technologies—ones pioneered by Nash Editions.
