Samadhisound announces Hypergraphia: The Writings of David Sylvian 1980–2014
Samadhisound is pleased to announce Hypergraphia: The Writings of David Sylvian 1980–2014, a comprehensive collection of his lyrics and poetry (many published for the first time), covering the thirty-five years of his career to date, framed by three interviews and accompanied by an exquisite collection of artwork curated or made by Sylvian. Art directed by Sylvian and designed by Chris Bigg. An immaculate and thorough retrospective, Hypergraphia’s organic structure and its juxtapositions of past and present, formal and personal, save the book from treating Sylvian’s career as a bust on a pedestal: instead, we see it as what it is – an extraordinary work in progress.
638 pages, hard back, full colour. Page size – 150mm x 225mm portrait.
Regular edition: £65.00.
Signed edition: £85.00 (the signed edition has sold out).
Hypergraphia is published in a limited edition of 3,000 copies. An edition of 500 signed and individually numbered copies, by Sylvian and designer Chris Bigg, has already sold out.
