Jarvis Cocker is widely regarded as one of the most original and memorable lyricists and performers of the last three decades. Mother, Brother, Lover - his first book - is a collection of seventy lyrics, selected and annotated by the author. Opening with an essay on the art of lyric-writing, the selection features Pulp classics such as 'Common People', 'Babies' and 'This is Hardcore', as well as less familiar and unreleased songs. Spanning thirty years of songwriting, the collection reveals a unique sensibility: a sometimes visceral, sometimes everyday take on love, relationships and the things we do to each other when the lights get low. Mother, Brother, Lover takes the reader on a tour into the life, art and preoccupations of one of the great British artists of the late twentieth century. Shocking, sharp, clever and funny, it is a beautiful, enduring collection. Limited Edition: 100 copies, signed, numbered and slipcased. Each copy will contain a unique bookmark made from a strip of 4 individual black and white passport photographs of Jarvis. Each bookmark will be signed, numbered and dated, and will have a hand-written message from Jarvis which reads 'mark my words'. The cover will be blocked in gold foil, with the title hand-written by Jarvis on the front panel. Printed on Munken premium cream 80gsm, sewn with mandarin end papers and cased in Nutmeg brown cloth over 2.5k micron boards. Gold and black head and tail bands and Ivory ribbon marker. Slipcase lined in mandarin paper and covered in Nutmeg brown cloth.
