A new book featuring the artwork of grunge legend Kurt Cobain and others associated with him. The description from the book’s website follows:
‘Kurt and the Gang’ is a sticker collection chronicling the life, influence and friends of Kurt Cobain. The book is packed with 72 stickers and printed illustrations designed by 13 artists from around the world. Together, in some way, we hope to have captured a very unique and awesome generation of which Kurt was a giant part.
Kurt Donald Cobain was born on February 20, 1967, in Aberdeen, Washington State. He was tragically found dead, in his Washington home with a shotgun to his head, in April of 1994.
Kurt Cobain has been remembered as one of the most iconic figures of the Twentieth Century, within music and beyond. Eric Olsen wrote, ‘Viewed by many as the ‘last real rock star’, a messiah and martyr whose every utterance has been plundered and parsed”. He is the figurehead of Generation X, a poster boy for the MTV era.
‘Kurt and the Gang’ features illustrations of Kurt Cobain, Courtney Love, Dylan Carlson, El Duce, The Pixies, Lead Belly, Daniel Johnston, Dave Grohl and many others based around the Cobain scene.
and Illustrations from Patrick Schmidt, Murray Somerville, Chris Golden, Sean Morris, Brooke Olsen, Christoper Worker, Rob Goodall, Chaos vs Cosmos, Michael Hsiung, Paul Windle, Laura Handyside and Sophy Hollington
