Big Star's History Captured in Massive, Limited Edition Photo Book
Big Star – Isolated in the Light, a massive, limited edition photo book featuring rare and never-before-seen photographs of the influential Memphis rock group, is due out this October on First Third Books.
The book, which charts Big Star's early Seventies roots through overseas tours and the solo careers of Alex Chilton and Chris Bell, is the result of a five-year collaboration between graphic designer Fabrice Couillerot and photographer Donna Ranieri.
Pictures by famed photographer William Eggleston, a friend of Chilton who contributed his work The Red Ceiling to the cover of Big Star's Radio City, are featured in Isolated in the Light alongside unearthed photos like Michael O'Brien, Maude Schuyler Clay, Carole Manning, David Bell and more. All of the photos have been "lovingly rescanned" from the negatives. via RollingStone
