This sumptuous and luxuriously produced volume gathers portraits, album covers, photographs of performances and rehearsals, rarely seen private moments, and candid snapshots of Prince, one of the greatest singer-songwriters of his generation.
This collection from ACC Art Books & Iconic Images – publishers of the bestselling book Bowie: Icon – was curated in consultation with Steven Parke, and its impact is both powerful, and inspiring.
