Classic edition of the Dinosaur Jr. book

Signature edition

Limited to 500 signed, numbered box sets

Each set contains two volumes and is signed by J, Lou and Murph. It also includes a limited run of new fine art prints unique to the set.

Each set is presented in a clamshell box.

The volumes

Volume 1 is a special, limited edition of the Classic edition book, each signed by J, Lou and Murph.

Volume 2 is a facsimile edition of tour diaries written in 1987 and 1988 by close friend and ‘worst roadie in the world’, Jon Fetler. He not only kept a brilliant, revealing and hugely entertaining diary while on tour with Dinosaur, but also took a lot of candid and unposed, behind the scenes photographs.

The diaries capture a crucial period in the band’s development, and had not been seen or read–even by the band–until the creation of this book.

The prints

The set contains fine art prints of original Dino artwork: one by Maura Jasper and one by J Mascis.

The prints are unique to the set, and printed on fine art paper using archival ink to guard against fading.

They are ready for mounting and display straight out of the box.

Devin Townsend: “I thought writing a book was going to be easy. It wasn’t. Writing about growing up, music, the creative process and connection between personal development and ‘career’ made me think about a lot of other stuff, too. Like the positive and negative experiences of making different albums, and how each one affected me mentally, physically and emotionally. It’s all here, though, from my childhood to working with Steve Vai, forming Strapping Young Lad and the Devin Townsend Project, to Casualties of Cool and finding myself only half there.” Pre-order the Signature or the Classic Edition of “Only Half There”now. http://devintownsendbook.com/
