Dig, Lazarus, Dig!!! Limited Edition Book
Measuring a bit over 4” square, this bound book is a window into the creation of the stunning Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds album. Part photo album, part sketchbook and a fully fascinating compliment to the brilliant album. Features a mini-CD with the song “Dig Lazarus Dig” on it.
“This little book is about the making of the song “Dig, Lazarus, Dig” It is a curiosity that deals with the preparation and final glorious outcome of a project that began on the back of an envelope, a literal scrap of an idea and ended up evolving into a genuine cultural icon and classic rock‘n‘roll song, due to the collaborative efforts of myself and Brit artists Sue Webster and Tim Noble. The song, which is a comic re-imagining of the Lazarus myth (placing recently ‘risen’ Lazarus in 70’s New York City) is accompanied by an eifht foot square light sculpture, eploying over 750 light bulbs, build by Webster and Noble. This little book documents the journey of this mammoth collaboration. Dig it” Nick Cave (from the back of the book)
