FAT POSSUM RECORDS AND TYRANT BOOKS PRESENT:
IGGY POP: BARE & REAL
Photographs by Paul McAlpine
First Edition: Limited to 1,000 Copies Worldwide
Available exclusively through Tyrant Books
Against our better judgement, and blinded by our admiration of Scott McClanahan, we went into business with Gian and Tyrant Books. The relationship hasn't been as disastrous as you'd think - Atticus Lish's award-winning Preparation for the Next Life and more recently the New York Times' bestselling Cherry by Nico Walker.
Now, for limited time (seriously), we are proud to offer Bare & Real - Iggy Pop; an exclusive first edition 12" x 12" collection of 200+ never-before-seen Iggy Pop photos by Paul McAlpine, documenting the iconic 1977 The Idiot tour and onward. Blondie opened, Bowie played piano... all this for a measly $120.00, plus some shipping. For those with a taste for the finer things, and for those a little better off than yer neighbors, we have a handful of numbered editions, signed by Iggy, for an extra hundred.
