Amy Winehouse: Beyond Black

ISBN: 9780500024287 (HB - E)

Ten years after her untimely death, this affectionate and evocative visual celebration tells the definitive story of the life and career of Amy Winehouse Amy Winehouse left an indelible mark on both the music industry and pop culture with her soulful voice and bold 60s-inspired aesthetic. Specially commissioned photography of memorabilia, styled and dressed themed sets incorporating Amy's clothing, possessions and lyrics, and previously unseen archival images presents an intimate portrait that celebrates her creative legacy. With pertinent stories and anecdotes told by a wide range of characters connected to Amy, this authorized volume also sets the record straight. Her stylist and close friend Naomi Parry interviews 40 of Amy's friends, colleagues and high-profile fans, including producer and friend Mark Ronson, fans Adele, Lady Gaga, Beyonce, Jay-Z and Stormzy, friends Kelly Osbourne, Ronnie Wood, Bryan Adams, Carl Barât and Doug, landlord of the Hawley Arms, tattooist Henri Hate, and fellow rebel Vivienne Westwood. Each one has a personal story to share and together their anecdotes and reflections build into a complex picture of a much admired but troubled star. Vice journalist Emma Garland puts these insights in context with an introduction that highlights the principal events and achievements in Amy's life and work, and the key characters that played a part in it. Organized broadly chronologically, the book features specially commissioned day and night photography of Camden streets and venues of relevance to Amy's life, together with lyric sheets, sketches, ephemera and contextual photographs and video stills, including album, single and promotional artworks and outtakes. Punctuating the story are specially commissioned 'Amy World' photographs of styled and dressed room sets each designed to evoke a period of Amy's life or to reflect a specific Amy viewpoint, incorporating Amy's clothing, possessions, lyrics and other memorabilia.
