Yesterday was the launch of the Kickstarter campaign to fund the printing of an official limited edition hardcover coffee table book, chronicling the earlier career of the Pixies. This visual retrospective spans from the bands formation in 1986 up to the band’s eventual breakup in 1993, the book is a kind of visual retrospective.
The book, compiled by Sean T. Rayburn, best known for starting the fansite-turned-official-website PixiesMusic.com in 2004, will feature rare never before seen photos of the band from their dorm room days to the height of their fame.
If all goes well and the project is fully funded, not only will we see the book produced, but Sean and his team will start preparations for a second installment. Part two will cover in-depth the members post-breakup side projects, as well as the band’s reformation and subsequent tour.
PIXIES: A Visual History, Part 1 will ship in late fall 2013.
