Hey ya Greenlight, yeah, it's a paperback, I can't recall quite how many pictures but it's 25-30 I think was the final roundup. For the pictures, I asked participants if they had pictures they knew of or could volunteer - I only wanted photos of Thurston with them. So much of the focus of the book is on community, on these circles of friends and fellow travellers that I wanted the photos to reflect that vibe. Plus I thought Thurston might chuckle seeing this 'family album' of acquaintances. They're printed onto pages not as a standalone photo section.

The front and back photos are by Stefano Giovannini - the cover photo was taken at Williamsburg Music Hall a few years ago, the back cover photo of Thurston on stage is (I think) from Battery Park. I spoke to a number of people about submitting photographs...Those two were my preferences too. Not sure if there's any deep story - there's a requirement at the publisher that a book of this nature, as the cover image, should feature the artist in question looking toward the camera. I kinda liked the extreme close up and the lighting and so forth.
