Michael Jackson American Master.
Self-published in 1996 by the book's author C.Mecca but fully endorsed by Jackson's MJJ Productions Inc. It probably the most bizarre music book ever published. Actually scrub the probably and look again at the cover - this is
the most bizarre music book ever published!
With the personal endorsement of Jackson and his manager Bob Jones came the right to use thirty-seven unpublished images. This one is enjoyably
with the super wide could be eighties Yohji shirt.
See it all here! And if that slideshow is not enough, check out the thirty-three minute
YouTube review. That's some half hour!
Who shot the serif? No-one shot the serif in this book. It's alive and well and superimposed on a Michaelangelo relief. The book traces 'Masters' of the human race from Michaelangelo to Michael Jackson. There are twelve qualifications of a master, all of which Jackson meets.
Develops his talent to the best of his ability
Enhances the world by his very presence
The Statue of Liberty is such an iconic and singular image, it is quite a surprise to see it twice on one page! In truth, it is hard to find the words to describe this book. It looks like it was art directed by whoever owns Ranoush Juice on the Edgware Road. The typeface is one part middle eastern and two parts masonic. It's wild on the eye!
We don't need to underline the humour in One Hundred Two
Guidelines from the Master's Handbook. Not only is the absence of the word 'and' amusing but so is the author's overwhelming compulsion to break the golden rule of the round number: "I know it should be 100 but I just can't see where to cut! I've got more in me!"
The cover image is repeated in the book and it is repeated in this email because it is soooo good! His face maybe airbrushed on but that heavyweight champion of the world belt and multiple finger bandage is real enough. If you need a vaguely scientology/masonic self help book then help yourself to this masterpiece. Price on application and we won't tell anyone you bought it!
