Assassinated Beauty: Photographs of the Manic Street Preachers – Hardcover

Kevin Cummins' Assassinated Beauty is a unique record of the Manic Street Preachers on their mission to reclaim rock and roll through literature, image, and thrilling guitar pop.  The book documents the period just before the release of the band's 1992 album Generation Terrorists up to their 1995 record Holy Bible and the subsequent disappearance of guitarist and lyricist, Richey Edwards.  Cummins captures James, Sean, Richey, and Nicky in their most uncompromising, glam-fixated early years through a revealing mix of studio shots and never-seen-before behind-the-scenes photographs that make this the ultimate portrait of one of the last great British rock and roll bands.
