Tom Waits Photo Book Due This Spring
Dutch photographer and video director Anton Corbijn is teaming up with Tom Waits on a collaborative coffee table photo book that will feature more 30 years of Corbijn’s portraits of Waits, plus an additional selection of original musings and pictures produced by Waits himself. Appropriately titled ‘Waits/Corbijn – Photographs 1977-2010,’ the tome arrives on May 8 and is available for pre-order here.
“Tom Waits and Anton Corbijn are a perfect artist-artist match,” reads a post on the singer’s official website. “Their 30-year collaboration now yields this book of portraits by Corbijn plus more than 50 pages filled up with images/writing by Waits himself.” ‘Waits/Corbijn’ will be issued in hardcover format with a slipcase in a limited edition of 6,600 copies and feature text from cult director Jim Jarmusch and rock scribe Robert Christgau.
