Corbijn's U2

Anton Corbijn, U2 and I:
The photographs 1982 - 2004,

U2 fans will love this: 400ish pages of Corbijn photos and commentary taking in the heyday of U2's fame and popularity. It's also a quite apt thing as Corbijn's photos, particularly the b&w ones, were really central to U2's image - a sort of arty edginess that most definitely extended what they did on stage.

Corbijn's commentary, in the form of handwritten notes, is pleasantly done and U2 trainspotters get a nice fat helping of information about various doings of the band both in connection with the photos and generally.
