From This Might Be A Wiki
View this email in your browserThey Might Be Giants’ new project is now available for pre-order!
They Might Be Giants has made a new album and created a remarkable book project to accompany it. It is called BOOK and we are accepting PRE-ORDERS for it now. The first edition printing is a book with a CD inserted, and there will also be standalone audio releases on vinyl, CD, and now a cassette version of the project! All formats arrive with a download of the album.What kind of book is BOOK? Well, it’s a 144-page full-color, hard-bound book of original work by Brooklyn photographer Brian Karlsonn and lyrics selected from our brand new album BOOK, I Like Fun, My Murdered Remains, and a new ancillary musical product called The Pamphlet EP, all set in layouts that might be best described as something like poetry concrete by graphic design superstar Paul Sahre. Sahre actually typed up all the lyrics by hand on an IBM Selectric typewriter from the early 1970s and, with all the imagination and style Paul typically pours into his design work, they are beautiful and singular.
These first editions of BOOK are

Why would you deny yourself pleasure?
It is impossible to sum up the glory of this epic project, but here is a quick look inside at a couple of real spreads…
While BOOK is being formally presented as an art book + audio experience, it is also available on traditional music formats like the compact disc, an LP album in a gatefold jacket on 180-gram audiophile vinyl, and now, for the first time in a long time on a cassette tape! We’ll say it: BOOK on tape!
