Hey! Don't think you can hang on to that book forever! You have to sleep sometime... :smth036

Anyhow, I found some more places where you are supposed to be able to buy a copy. Perhaps they could be worth a try:

thanks for links Poe. yet i think these book sellers offer some rather rip-off prices(!). anyone looking for this should try ebay instead and they'd probably only have to spend £5 or something:

(anyway i think Hero already got a copy(?), like she said.)

Ay, in the very temple of Delight
Veil'd Melancholy has her sovran shrine

Yes I know, those links were for other people visiting the thread.

Ebay again huh? Could give it a try. I'll be looking for the book when I'm in the US, maybe I'll even have time to order it and get it there...Thanks for the link.  :D

Anyone else wanting it, try www.abebooks.co.uk. It's a database of secondhand bookshops. Ok some are expensive, but one for £11.99.

Also Amazon marketplace £10.99 upwards!

It is the best book available, best designed & written. An update one day would be priceless!

Just found this thread.  I actually have 2 copies....one I originally bought around the time it first came out, and the other my wife got me a few years back, signed by Robert, Simon, Porl, and Lol!

Oh my. I can imagine the price tag on that. IF you'd sell it, of course, which I highly doubt...

Next time I'm home, I'll try to remember to get a picture of it to post here. :smth023

Well....I got my copy.  :rocker Decided to order one through amazon (second hand) and was pleasantly surprised when it turned out to be in much better shape than I had expected. Not a single page read yet, but I'll be back with a comment once I've found a nice, quiet glade to settle down in for a couple of hours...see you later.  :smth039

Hey, Poe, how can you headbang to a book?   ;) :-D


What better way to mark the über coolness of the occasion than with a headbang, ey?  ;)  Felt good. 8)

I'm gonna go show the book to a fellow Cure fan soon. Here she goes: :rocker

This is a great piece of collection for any fan of The Cure!!!. I´ve got this great book and I can tell you that the amount of stuff between every page is amazing.

But I really wonder why doesn´t continue with the others years of the band?, why only since the year 1987?, it would be better continue the history of the imaginary years since today, don´t you?.

Cheers!!! :D

Hi Friend, what´s new?.

Wow!!!, I never had seen this book before I think that is a great jewel as was Ten Imaginary Boys.

I wish get this book the more soon possible inasmuch as I love read and learn more about The Cure.

Other book very interesting is A Visual Documentary (there´s only 2 editions: 1987 and 1992) where date for date the author tell us how The Cure have changed and growed across of the years.

It is possible to get this book(never enough) in some web page as ebay or mercadolibre for mexico?.

Thanks so much for the information, I´ll try to get this book, I hope very soon.

Greetings!!!
:D :D :D

I have this book sitting somewhere w/ all my Cure stuff & yes, it's a good book.  Never got to see 20 Imaginary Years (wasn't sure if that ever came out... I only heard there was going to be one.)  I do have the Documentary book that was revised after Teddy joined the band.  I also have "Faith" by Dave Bowler & Bryan Dray that I got @ Tower Records.  This book was published in 1995 & it features interviews w/ Tim Pope & others who have worked w/ the group over the years.  "It analyses the Cure's contribution to popular music & shows how their extraordinary success has been gained on their own terms - a triumph of single-mindedness over fashion" which is what it says on the back of the book.
