BRIAN ENO IS REISSUING HIS DIARY AND ESSAY COLLECTION, 'A YEAR WITH SWOLLEN APPENDICES'
The collection was first published in 1996
First published in 1996, Eno first began writing the essays for the collection in 1994. Now, for the twenty-fifth anniversary of the project, the collection is getting a hardcover and e-book re-issue via Faber and Faber.
The re-issue, which will be available in the UK on November 19, will contain a new introduction by Eno alongside essays he penned on working with David Bowie, U2 and more. The new design of the book pays homage to his original diary and the first published edition of the collection.
Faber and Faber's Editorial Director Alexa von Hirschberg said: "We are thrilled to be bringing Brian Eno's 1995 diary and 'appendices' back into print.
"A Year With Swollen Appendices is an intimate time capsule of the mind and working practices of a formidable thinker and creator at a pivotal point in history. It is an indispensable read."
Released on July 17, the Eno brothers released Mixing Colours Expanded, which contained seven new tracks including Moss, Violet, Vermilion, Marble and Malachite. A cut titled Pewter also appeared, having previously only been available as a bonus track in Japan.
