Jimi Hendrix – The Ultimate Lyric Book and Fashion

Lyrics are both powerful and seductive.  The lyrics of Jimi Hendrix fashion an in the music of our heart. I recently ran across a new book about Jimi Hendrix’s lyrics, Jimi Hendrix, The Ultimate Lyric Book, compiled by Janie Hendrix.  It is a loving, heartfelt tribute from a sister to a brother.

“When I was a child, I was always fascinated by my brother Jimi’s handwriting,” recalled Janie Hendrix, who compiled this collection. “It was an art form in and of itself. I remember the feeling of being captivated the first time I saw his handwritten lyrics, thinking how beautiful, how complicated both the writing and the words were on paper. Even now they offer such an insight into who my brother was and is.”

The blad (book layout and design) of the Europe and UK edition is view-able here on Issuu. Issuu is the future of mobile publishing. They offer a vivid experience for readers! I urge you to subscribe to their Web site and enhance your visual knowledge.

I discovered after the fact that Janie Hendrix was at Bloomingdale’s the other night, signing copies of Jimi Hendrix, The Ultimate Lyric Book. It was a pretty cool event. Bloomingdale’s flagship store on 59th Street in New York City held an event with Lyric Culture introducing a Jimi Hendrix clothing line together. Billy Cox (Jimi Hendrix Band of Gypsys) and Eric Gales played live as a special surprise. I met Billy Cox a couple of years back, he’s a really nice guy.

Lyric Culture has forged a great clothing concept, wearable lyric fashions. Visit their Web site and I bet you’ll find a song/artist item you’ll want to wear. I found several shirts I liked 🙂
