Book of Jam - Now available!
 
Log in to underworldlive.com to download the first issue of Book of Jam.

Let me reiterate again, though, Underworld. I will pay money for a print version. Maybe you guys can release a "Best of" next year or something?

Edit: Having had a few minutes to look over it, I love it! It really is a synthesis of a lot of the things we've seen on underworldlive.com 3.0 over the past few months. It gives context and explanation to all those things.

For example, we see some of Rick's high-rez nature photography that has appeared on the site and that Karl talked about briefly. Definitely looking forward to the Book of Nature.

We also see some more of the Abbey Road photos that have been popping up here and there. Including the mic picture on the second to last page that we first saw with the release of Phonestrap.

There's a continuation of Wayposts that Karl started on underworldlive.com. We've also certainly seen previews of the Book of Qi and the Book of Words on underworldlive.com.

More please! Looking forward to next month's Book of Tokyo.

yeah i look forward to seeing more..

a print version would be nice, but how many do you think
they could print, and how long would it take before it
comes out? oh well , i guess we're a patient bunch...

Just a silly dream for the future, but I'd love to have the first ten (or whatever) issues in a big coffee table book proudly displayed. Beautiful!

it pretty much lost me on the super bad letter spacing of the all caps... all JW knows is 'stunt typography'

I understand your sentiment, though in fairness, JW does a lot more than that and has the design credentials to prove it. Agreed, with the RiverRun series and on, tomato has been in a phase with their typo, but i think one could point to other periods of the band where the logo or text had a familiar or oft-used style.

Take another look...there's sooo much good stuff in the writings and the photos/art of this first installment.
i need to print this out on glossy paper! Kudos to the band for their multimedia prowess!

Lots of love and thanks so much guys! Spoiled fans as per usual...

Love the linkage to Black Mountain & Brian Eno's generative music... two things that have defiantly been on the go alongside Oblivion With Bells for the past few months...

Late night, brain-blurring/brightening/bubbling web-browsing is what got me the guts to, at 3 in the morning, just order the tickets to NY and tell the girlfriend, 'September 14th. Central Park.' Trip of a lifetime.

I really envy and admire Underworld's devotion to the arts, and in today's world it's stuff like this that keeps me goin...

Keep up ta good work.

if i could kiss a PDF i would.

i pulled an image for my desktop at work (the one of karl lying on his back with a camera, oriented 90 degrees counter-clockwise) and one of my coworkers asked, "is that your husband?"

it was all i could do not to shout, "I WISH!" instead i said, "no that's a 50-year-old musical british dude that i worship." :D
