Published Nov 26, 2014Icelandic pop goddess Björk has led an illustrious, diverse career. Now that her Biophilia album cycle has come to an end, she's simultaneously looking to the future and the past. While working on a new album, the artist has announced plans to celebrate her history with a new book.
According to i-D [via FACT], Björk will dig into her history as an artist with a new book called Björk: Archives. The book will trace her career from 1993 to present and will include four booklets and a pull-out poster.
In addition to Björk's heavy involvement with the book, it also includes contributions from Chris Cunningham, Spike Jonze, musicology professor Nicola Debben and Icelandic poet Sjón. There are also portraits of Björk from Nan Goldin, Juergen Teller, Inez & Vinoodh, and Arak.
Björk: Archives will coincide with a retrospective exhibit celebrating the artist at MoMA in New York. As such, the book will feature an introduction from MoMA curator Klaus Beisenbach.
Björk: Archives is due on March 30 via Thames and Hudson.
