Bossa Nova book by Gilles Peterson

Possibly of interest to both music and art/design fans is Bossa Nova: Bossa Nova and the Rise of Brazilian Music in the 1960s by Gilles Peterson and Stuart Baker. It's out via Soul Jazz later this month.

So what's it about? Well, Gilles Peterson and Stuart Baker have produced a deluxe hardback 12 x 12-inch book with 200 pages, 100s of ultra-cool Bossa Nova sleeves from Brazil plus lots of historical, cultural and social text as well as biographies on loads of the artists. A starting point, you could say, with an accompanying album to follow in a couple of months.

There's a free book launch even in London a few days after the book hits the shelves, where you can get signed copies, hear some tunes and have some free drinks. See the Soul Jazz site for details. Amazon is doing discounted pre-orders of the book ahead of the official November 29th launch, copies currently available for £17.50.
