Description of this Book

2014 is the 40th anniversary of Nick Drake's death, at the age of 26. Since his death, he has become increasingly well-known, and is discovered anew by each generation. You may not have heard of him, but once you have you wonder how you could ever not have known who he was. This book will be a celebration of his life and his music; a beautiful, full-colour hardback with lyrics and letters, interviews and essays, and other miscellanea. There will also be a boxed, special edition, with a 10 record of an unreleased BBC recording session. His estate have never produced a book before, and won't produce one again.
