The Holiday Gift Of 2009
(click image to enlarge)
If anyone thinks I'm kidding when I say that Misery Obscura: The Photography of Eerie Von (1981-2009) is the Fuck You Heroes for Lodi, NJ – they're sadly mistaken. There's never been, and never will be again, a book quite like this one. Eerie was the only one to document Lodi's finest from the inside. As the unofficial photographer of The Misfits and founding member of both Samhain and Danzig, Eerie's book of photos, memorabilia and stories captures the essence of punk and hard rock like nobody else can.
I was privileged to coordinate and design the 160-page, full-color project for Eerie and Dark Horse Books. The official release date is the week of Christmas but the book should be shipping in early December. To pre-order from Amazon.com for only $19.77, go here.
