PLEDGEMUSIC and HOT PRESS team up for tribute to Thin Lizzy frontman – “Still In Love With You: The Book of the Philip Lynott Exhibition”
PLEDGEMUSIC and Ireland’s leading music magazine Hot Press have teamed up for the publication of Philip Lynott: Still In Love With You – a tribute to Ireland’s foremost rock legend.
Inspired by the exhibition Still In Love With You – The Philip Lynott Exhibition which drew both huge attendances and rave reviews during runs in Dublin and London’s O2, the two limited edition books feature personal archive material focusing on the Thin Lizzy frontman’s life and career. From lyrics books and guitars to stage clothes and Philip’s personal diary, it brings together an extraordinary collection of personal material, to create a fascinating picture of Ireland’s first bona fide rock star.
Via PledgeMusic campaign Pledgers not only have the opportunity to make this ambitious project possible but can play an interactive part in the process, submitting their own personal photos for inclusion in the book and a credit as one of the Executive Producer team along with some unique one-off exclusives. Two deluxe versions of the book are available, each telling the story of Phil Lynott and Thin Lizzy and highlighting many of the exhibition’s most popular showpieces. Copies of the Deluxe Large-Format Super Book edition will be personally signed by Philip’s mother Philomena Lynott, whose book My Boy (published by Hot Press) was a No.1 bestseller in Ireland.
‘Philip Lynott: Still In Love With You – The Book of The Philip Lynott Exhibition’ can be preordered from http://www.pledgemusic.com/philiplynott now in advance of their release later this year.
