First Third Books has announced a limited edition photo book celebrating the career of pop star Marc Almond. Featuring over 200 images from numerous international photographers, as well as Almond’s personal archives, and available in a linen-bound hardcover volume, the book is slated for publication on June 3, limited to 1,300 copies worldwide; each will be hand numbered, along with a special edition that will feature an exclusive 7-inch single of previously unreleased tracks. Previews and pre-orders of the book, simply titled Marc Almond, are available via the First Third Books website; the company has also announced future publications featuring The Ramones and Siouxsie & The Banshees, and recently released a book of photography featuring industrial icon Genesis Breyer P-Orridge (Throbbing Gristle/Psychic TV).
Renowned as a powerful voice in new romanticisim and post-glam pop, Almond is perhaps best known for having covered “Tainted Love” in both new wave act Soft Cell and legendary industrial/avant-garde group Coil. As a solo artist, Almond has incorporated elements of fashion and art-house theatricality with a decided pop flair that has kept him active in both the mainstream and underground music scenes since the early ’80s.
