A re-release ?

Expanded version with new pictures. Could explain why a lot of old pictures have been posted on their website recently.

Literally was originally 340 pages. According to Amazon the re-release is 400 pages !

Never judge a book by it's cover and all that ... but not keen on that shot of Neil. I think from the Jealousy single era - washed out and unflattering. So many better options to have used instead.
you could say conventional ... and I could claim intentional

What is the actual point in buying these books again in hardback when you (I assume) already have them? I’d only be interested if they were released digitally on the Apple Bookstore!


Edit: Just looked on the Apple bookstore and Literally is on there to pre-order but Versus America isn’t yet!
Its taken me all of my life to find you
