Touché Amoré have announced that they will be releasing a new art book, titled “The Art Of Touché Amoré,” on January 26. Pre-orders are available HERE and fans that purchase it before December 3 will receive a signed card.
A description of the book was shared in a press release:
“THE ART OF TOUCHÉ AMORÉ is a 416-page softcover behemoth that features virtually every bit of art over the band’s now 12-year career, primarily from the hands of band’s guitarist and resident art director/designer Nick Steinhardt.
The book includes artwork from their highly collectible sold-out deluxe album releases alongside the lyrics that inspired. An additional archive section features an expansive catalog of tactile seven-inch releases, tour posters, and merchandise from their beginnings in 2007 to their most recent release, Lament (2020).
Noted indie music writer and longtime Touché Amoré analyst, Ian Cohen wrote the narration for the book and interviewed creative collaborators Ryan Aylsworth (photographer), Anthony Gerace (collage artist), and George Clarke (photographer), while vocalist Jeremy Bolm penned the Introduction, and Steinhardt helmed the foreword.”
“Given the number of years we’ve been at this and the limited availability of our most expansive releases, we realized that even some of our most enthusiastic fans either weren’t aware of or haven’t had the chance to see the full vision of our album packages. There is a larger story to tell than just a singular album cover: the intertwining of our music, lyrics and art, inspiration and anecdotes on the creative process, in one thorough volume. I wanted to approach this from the perspective of a completist fan, curious nascent artist, die-hard music lover, print packaging nerd, or all of the above.”
