About A Year with Swollen Appendices: Brian Eno's Diary (25th Anniversary Edition)
So, at the end of 1994, musician, producer and artist Brian Eno resolved to keep a diary. But, his plans to go to the cinema, theatre and galleries fell through quickly. What he did do – and write – however, was astonishing. For instance, about ruminations on his collaborative work with artists including David Bowie, U2, James and Jah Wobble. And interspersed with essays on topics from the generative and ambient music. Also, he pioneered to what he believed the role of an artist and their art to truly be, alongside razor-sharp commentary on his day-to-day tribulations and happenings around the world.
This beautiful 25th-anniversary hardcover edition has been redesigned in the same size as the diary that eventually became this book. It also features two ribbons, pink paper delineating the appendices (matching the original edition) and a two-tone paper-over-board cover, which pays homage to the original design.
A fascinating, candid and intimate insight into one of the most influential creative artists of our time, A Year with Swollen Appendices is an essential classic, reissued for a new generation of readers.
