Coming in September 2023 is a new book (an A-Z of The Cure):

QuoteThe book is an encyclopaedic A-Z of The Cure examining and riffing on miscellaneous trivia, biographies of the band members past and present, summaries of each album and selected songs, details of the band's various tours and films, and essays on broader topics such as their image, their politics and their influences.

QuoteVella has since gone on to design for other acts including Primal Scream, St. Vincent, and Mogwai. But it's his work with the Cure that remains most deeply entwined with the group (and collected by the MoMA)—so much so that Vella was most recently tapped to design the deluxe edition of Simon Price's upcoming book, Curepedia: An A-Z of The Cure, due out in November.

A German review:

https://www.rollingstone.de/reviews/kritik-curepedia-immersive-beautifully-designed-z-biography-cure/

QuoteSein Lexikon ist so opulent (nahezu DIN A4, dazu vierspaltig pro Doppelseite) und dennoch so gut, dass die wenigen inhaltlichen (die Greatest-Hits-Sammlung von 1998 scheint bei ihm ohne ,,Wish"-Singles auszukommen) oder typografischen (,,The Twilight Garden") Fehler umso bedauerlicher sind.

Robert Smith liebt ,,Star Wars" und hat noch nie eine Armbanduhr getragen, das ist vielleicht Trivia. Etwas mehr als nur Trivia bietet das Kapitel ,,Shoes": Smith liebt, untypisch für Goth-Rocker, Turnschuhe. Aber er lässt sich nicht kaufen – von allen seinen Turnschuhen, das hat Price beobachtet, hat der Cure-Sänger die Markenlogos entfernt. Gut beobachtete Details – und nur vermeintlich eine Kleinigkeit.
