The Festive Fifty Number Ones - an illustrated memoir b/w The All Time Festive Fifty 2000 - an illustrated appreciation
Black & white, 170 pages, 7.5" x 7.5"
David Gedge (The Wedding... More > Present) has written the introduction for Side A and The Cuban Boys have written the introduction for Side B.
The book has two sides (like a record!) - side A is all about the Festive 50 Number Ones (from 1978-2004) drawing on my own personal recollections of the songs and how they've affected my life. The B side focuses on the all time Festive 50 from 2000, again including my personal memories of the songs and some analysis and information on each song. I'm keeping a blog http://festivefiftyillustrated.blogspot.com/ all about the making of the book.
Each entry includes a text page and an illustration.
This is the regular version.
