If you’re a fan of Nick Cave, then you probably would have been across Mercy on Me, the incredible graphic novel by Reinhard Kleist that came out last year. A bizarre journey into the Cave world, the book examined the artist from his childhood, right through to his work with The Birthday Party and The Bad Seeds.
Being a graphic novel, the illustrations are the centrepiece of the book. Now fans will have the chance to appreciate them on their own with a separate coffee table book coming out this March via London-based indie publisher SelfMadeHero.
Reinhard Kleist’s amazing illustrations exploring the work of Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds are coming together in a new coffee table book.
Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds: An Art Book is set to bring together Kleist’s moody portraits of the musician and his band, spanning 30 years of his writing, recordings and live shows.
Printed in a LP-sized coffee table format, the book also dives into Cave’s enigmatic imaginative world with comic book reimaginings of tracks like Deanna, The Good Son and Stagger Lee.
