The Band Photographs, 1968-1969 features more than 200 photographs documenting the Band during the time they made their first two albums, Music from Big Pink and The Band. More than half of the photos, drawn from Elliott’s archive of more than 12,000 images, have never been published before. This book is a pictorial history of The Band few have ever seen. Elliott’s Kickstarter campaign to fund the creation of the book was the highest funded for a photography book in Kickstarter’s history.
This Signature Edition is signed by Elliott in gold toned pigmented ink on the front sheet of the book. We printed only a few hundred extra copies and it will not be generally available again until a second edition is printed.
