An unparalleled look inside the brilliant mind of one of America's most revered rock legends, Cobain collects unseen artifacts and photographs from the estates archives to form a fascinating portrait of the creativity, madness, and genius of Kurt Cobain. Never-before-seen personal items and photographs take readers deeper inside Cobain's life than theyve ever been, and interactive features, such as Kurt's handwritten sticker-sheet of Nirvana name tags, facsimiles of unseen journal pages, and gatefolds of his graffiti-embellished guitars make this an essential keepsake. An audio CD possibly containing unreleased spoken-word material by Cobain, will be included. Accompanying the previously unpublished images and memorabilia is a compelling biographical narrative by Sunday Times bestselling author Charles R. Cross.
