Sharon's photo book "On Tour with Leonard Cohen"

On December 9 PowerHouse Books will release the new photo book, On Tour with Leonard Cohen,
a series of behind the scenes shots by Leonard's long time collaborator Sharon Robinson.
221 pages with introduction by Sharon, and foreword by Larry "Ratso" Sloman.

All photos shot by Sharon herself, except the one from Ramat Gan, Israel.
"Embedded with Field Commander Cohen, I kept my iPhone in my pocket so I could capture a moment in a second"
On Tour with Leonard Cohen is an impressionistic view of what it was like to be on tour with the legendary singer-songwriter poet. Robinson reveals the nitty-gritty of day-to-day life of the road, onstage and behind the scenes, and the chemistry of Cohen and his supporting artists, together on an incredible journey across the globe, their hearts and minds focused on the next show.
Book concept by Greg Gold, and the art direction by Gustaf Törling

Thanks for that info Jarkko,
Personally, I think this book promises in its presentation to be 'far from the madding crowd' as far as LC books go and in actual physical terms somewhat in the middle of it :)
I know I will not hesitate to buy it. Just in time to give myself a great Christmas present 8)

btw - I've always loved the front cover photo and that one with Leonard looking out the plane window.

looked this up= information is it will be out on Dec 4th in the uk
Seems a 'must have' and combining with live in Dublin will certainly brighten up the short December northern hemisphere days.
Hard to believe the picture of Leonard doing his own laundry. Clearly not out of necessity - perhaps some kind of ritual or meditation !?

I'm looking forward to having this book! Whether singing, writing, speaking, or taking photographs, I've loved everything I've experienced that was generated by Sharon 8)

I agree, B4real. It is the only one of the current crop of LC books I really want and have long since ordered.
So many others have jumped on the bandwagon once they smelled success, but Sharon Robinson has earned her stripes over many years.

Delivery date has changed several times, according to Amazon, but as long as it makes it before Christmas I'll be happy! :D

Yes, I got the same message. It's the 4th or 5th time they have changed the delivery date since I first ordered last February.

Yes, so annoying!
A bad marketing move for whoever is responsible - in my case I will now buy just one copy for myself, instead of several as Christmas gifts for others.
Not to worry, I am so ecstatic about "Live in Dublin" I will put several copies of that on my gift list instead! :D

From Sharon:

We noticed that some forum members received a notice from Amazon that the publication date of my book had been postponed until the end of the month in the UK, so we looked into it with my publisher, and this was their response:

"The customer should have already received an update. Stock is on hand and en route to Amazon UK. Anyone who preordered the book on Amazon UK will get it sometime this week."

Just wanted to let everyone know and wish you and all the forum members a peaceful and happy holiday season.

Warm regards
Sharon

I got an e-mail from Amazon today to say that my book has been dispatched which was quite a surprise - but a pleasant one of course. Estimated delivery day is Dec 9 so clearly the pigeon has to carry the book on its back all the way from Amazon's warehouse, through wind and rain, over hill and dale .....

Sharon's book will be delivered here in the USA on the 9th Dec. also. Why the delay? Wonder where these books are being published?
