Quote
**TO BE PUBLISHED WORLDWIDE IN SEPTEMBER 2014**

Fleeting moments... altered faces... unexpected spaces. By turns dreadfully funny, terribly honest, strangely melancholic.  - Robert Smith, 2014

Andy Vella has been observing Robert Smith and The Cure since 1981. He has designed the majority of the artwork for The Cure's record releases, either as one half of Parched Art or working solo, and has photographed the band in its multiple incarnations.

Obscure is a unique collection of rare and unseen photographs of The Cure in the studio and in performance. This visually stunning and beautifully designed volume has been compiled with the full cooperation and input of Robert Smith, who has also written the foreword.

Format: hardback
Page count: 160 pages
Language: English

Can't you see I try? Swimming the same deep water as you is hard...

Lets my memory be perverted to the uses    
Of lying and oppression.    
My lovers and their children must not be dispossessed of me;
I would be the untarnished possession forever
Of those for whom I lived.
(Spoon River Anthology, E.L.M.)

Well, I can't tell much about it, I haven't pre-ordered it, as I'm in no hurry to get it. (Will probably put it on my Xmas wish-list...)

Amazon (German branch) mentions it to be released on Sept 18 too, but almost no other info (yet):
http://www.amazon.de/Obscure-Observing-Cure-Andy-Vella/dp/1905792441/

According to the info given in the original article, it is not exclusive to any retailer. With the title and/or the ISBN you should be able to order it in any good book shop.
