Graham Nash, a founding member of CSN (Crosby, Stills, Nash – and sometimes Young), is an accomplished photographer as well as a widely acclaimed musician. This book captures the music and personal moments of a monumental time in American cultural history through the mind of an artist who helped shape our era.
Graham Nash's original lyrics for 17 of his internationally acclaimed songs are included here, beautifully reproduced as facsimiles of their original state: scribbled on hotel letterhead, written on pages torn from notebooks, jotted down on flea market stationery. The songs that emerged from these notes and musings ("Our House," "Teach Your Children," "Chicago" ) shaped a generation, and have become an integral part of the American musical lexicon.
The elegantly reproduced lyrics in Love, Graham Nash are accompanied by 21 photographs (printed by world renowned Nash Editions) of friends, family and fellow musicians, each of which is imbued with a striking and unique sense of presence. Part poetic documentary, part cultural artifact, this perfectly crafted fine press book is truly a work of art in its own right. It serves as a visual diary that reveals the inner workings of this internationally acclaimed artist's mind, allowing us unprecedented access into the creative process at work.
