    “The book ‘Michael Stipe’, the third published by Damiani for the artist, addresses the concepts of human resilience and vulnerability through the portrait technique and is enriched by 16 audio tracks created by Michael Stipe that can be used by scanning a QR code present at the inside the book. Born from the artist’s reflection on the facts arising from the global pandemic [sic], the book is an ode to the resilience, strength and spirit of adaptability of the human being of the 21st century. Tilda Swinton, John Giorno, Joan Jonas, Kirsten Dunst, Beth Ditto, Gus Van Sant, Sam and Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Helena Christensen, Michèle Lamy, Sophie Calle are some of the subjects photographed by Stipe for this project. The QR code in the book gives free access to audio content, developed in collaboration with GOODmood, which deepen and reinforce the concepts underlying the images. In these sound contributions Michael Stipe reveals the background and many anecdotes behind the birth of the book.” (publisher’s blurb) Michael Stipe (1960-) is an American singer and artist, best known as the lead singer of R.E.M. This copy signed by Stipe on a plate mounted to the front free endpaper.
