Assassinated Beauty: Book (Signed By The Manic Street Preachers)
Release date: 10 February, 2023
James Dean Bradfield, Nicky Wire, Sean Moore and Richey Edwards. Formed in Blackwood, South Wales, in 1986, Manic Street Preachers have grown to become one of Britain's most respected and influential bands, known for their politicised and highly literate lyrics, and their emotively crafted songs.
Renowned photographer Kevin Cummins has been photographing the band from the early nineties, and Assassinated Beauty contains a selection of his best work - much of it previously unpublished. The book traces the arc of the Manics - through their initial success and the years leading up to the tragic disappearance of Richey in 1995, to their reinvention as a three-piece and the global recognition which continues to this day.
