Bauhaus – Undead: The Visual History and Legacy of Bauhaus – a curated coffee table book chronicling the history of one of the most renowned and influential post-punk and dark rock acts in the world is now available for pre-order via the book’s website. The book features the recollections of original drummer and author Kevin Haskins, in association with the formidable design team of Jeff Anderson of Artist In Residence and Donny Phillips and Kaylee Carrington of KIHL Studio, compiling numerous items from throughout the band’s history, including Haskins’ personal collection of photographs, as well as handmade flyers, backstage passes, ticket stubs, band artwork, letters, set lists, recording contracts, band sketches, fan club material, tour itineraries, hand written lyrics, invoices, and posters. Bauhaus – Undead offers a design that reflects the band’s origins in art school to create a darkly elegant aesthetic that serves as a tribute and celebration of the band’s groundbreaking influence and legacy. Haskins states, “In compiling this slice of life, all my post-punk adventures flashed before my eyes, as they will yours. All captured in one huge, deluxe coffee table book that one can actually touch and hold! And that, in this digital age, is a rarity.” In short, the book takes the viewer on a visual journey spanning Bauhaus’ inception in 1979 to the breakup in 1983, the reformation in 1998, and onto the now legendary 2005 performance at Coachella Music Festival.
In addition to the pre-order, a special edition numbered and signed by Haskins is available in a limited number of 500 copies.
