New book: Leonard Cohen Everybody Knows

Post by Andrew (Darby) »

https://www.leonardcohenforum.com/viewtopic.php?t=39574

With reference to the above thread about the Everybody Knows exhibition curated by the Art Gallery of Ontario, I’ve been made aware by a close friend in the book industry that a new book covering material in this exhibition is about to be published, entitled Leonard Cohen Everybody Knows: Inside His Archive 8)

It will be available in March, with the following link providing more information.

Cheers,

Hi,

In the UK I got my copy in Waterstones, in their Brighton store.

It’s a lovely book.

Maarten, thanks for that info and those two additional links.

John, I’m pleased, but a little surprised, that you already have sourced a copy in England. 8)

I’m getting a copy of this book from the said friend and her partner (my son, Tim) as a birthday present next month. :D

Cheers,
Andrew :)

Had a look on Waterstones online and they also have it in stock as well, in case anyone in the UK is trying to get hold of it.

I ordered the book here in the Netherlands (Bol.com) early February and received a track and trace code today. It seems that it will be delivered tomorrow. :D

Got it in the mail today, it’s a hardcover book and I spend the last hour or so just flipping through the pages.
Most of us know the biography of LC (albeit in various levels of detail). In that sense the book brings no new information. But the exciting and beautiful part of the book are the drawing and hand written notes.
Here are a few examples of the book so you can judge by yourself if it's worth your money.
