This is a crowdfunding campaign to help to print the new book, “And Justice For Art... LIVE! - Stories About Hard Rock & Heavy Metal Live Album Covers.” This will be the first book in the history of heavy music completely dedicated to revealing the stories behind the artworks adorning the sleeves of hundreds of Hard Rock and Heavy Metal live albums.
We’re accepting donations of just $21.00. Those contributing to this crowdfunding campaign will receive 5 benefits. These are:
1- Your name will be included in the book's THANK YOU credits.
2- You will be able to order the signed book 3 weeks before the general public, so you can secure your copy.
3- You will get a 12% discount when you purchase the book (this discount doesn't expire, so you can use it multiple times, any time you want).
4- A free bookmark featuring the book's artwork.
5- You will receive with your purchase either a free NEW CD, a LIMITED SIGNED MINI POSTER or a SET OF CARDS featuring exclusive artworks (gifts will be chosen randomly), PLUS a signed Thank You note from the author or musicians/artists involved in the book (also chosen randomly).
“…And Justice For Art... LIVE!” features 240 glossy color pages, more than 500 images, and more than 100 exclusive comments from bands and artists. The book reveals the secrets behind the cover artworks for legendary live recordings like Iron Maiden's "Live After Death," Judas Priest's "Unleashed In The East," Metallica's "Through The Never," Death's "Vivus," Pantera's "Official Live," Helloween's "Live In The U.K." Opeth's "Garden Of The Titans," Meshuggah's "Alive," AC/DC's "If You Want Blood," Dream Theater's "Once In A Livetime," Moonspell's "Lisboa Under The Spell," Emperor's "Live At Wacken," Voivod's "Lost Machine," Rush's "Exit... Stage Left," Slayer's "The Repentless Killogy," Triptykon's "Requiem," Amorphis' "Live In Helsinki Ice Hall," and many, many more.
The book's foreword was written by Voivod's drummer and visual artist, Michel 'Away' Langevin. The cover artwork was designed by talented Romanian artist, Costin Chioreanu (Emperor, At The Gates, Enslaved, etc.).
"And Justice For Art...LIVE!" is ready to go to the printer. Author, Ramon Oscuro Martos, spent more than $3,000 doing research, securing some images’ rights, and designing the book’s layout. He is currently trying to raise $10,558 to print 500 copies of the book. Printing a volume like this (with 240 glossy color pages) is extremely expensive. Ramon needs your support to bring the book to life. Every contribution helps. Your $21.00 donation is a unique opportunity to contribute to Metal history. You will be helping to save the stories/images featured in the book for future generations of Metal/Rock fans.
After your donation is made, make sure to write your name clearly to include it in the book's THANK YOU credits. Your name and email will be added to our mailing list and you will receive constant updates about printing and eventual pre-order. Please, keep your BigCartel receipt in your records and make sure to write your name clearly so we can include it in the book's credits.
