This month’s Celebrity pop books features TASCHEN’s book illustrating the band that lit up the 1980s.
Since the 1980s, Dutch master Anton Corbijn’s timeless and brooding aesthetic has cemented Depeche Mode’s reputation as effortlessly cool. With over 500 images from Corbijn’s personal archives, some never seen before, as well as Corbijn’s handwritten captions, and an in-depth interview with the artist, this is the eagerly anticipated, wallet friendly successor to our 2020 limited edition. Created with the full collaboration of the band, DM by AC visually amplifies Anton Corbijn’s stunning impact on the world’s biggest cult band and celebrates one of the most creative and enduring collaborations in rock history.
“He thought they were pop lightweights – then turned them into moody megastars. [Corbijn] recalls his adventures with the band, from desert trips to drug-induced near-death experiences.” The Guardian
“Anton was able to give the DM sound, that we were beginning to create, a visual identity.” Dave Gahan
“We were big fans of Anton’s art before we worked with him and after the amazing results we saw from the first photo sessions and videos, we had no reason to doubt his ideas.” Martin Gore
“We finally nabbed him in ’86 and that led to the video for ‘A Question of Time’ in LA. The rest is history.” Andrew Fletcher
Hardcover, 512 pages: €100
Multilingual Edition: English, French, German
