Nicky Wire to release new book Death of The Polaroid

Faber publishers have announced the acquisition of two titles by the Manic Street Preachers’ bassist and lyricist, Nicky Wire. The first of these books will be titled, ‘Death of The Polaroid: A Manics Family Album’.

For more than twenty years Nicky Wire has kept a personal visual history of the band in their various stages from ‘Generation Terrorists’ through ‘Holy Bible ‘and right up to last year’s remarkable album, ‘Postcards from a Young Man’.

Edited down from over 1,000 of Wire’s personal polaroids and with accompanying text by the man himself, ‘Death of The Polaroid’ promises to be a rich, visual biography of one of the most loved and iconoclastic British bands of the past two decades.
