Instant Cult Classic: STORIES FOR WAYS & MEANS


Tantalizing images from the book’s website!

Have you ever wanted to hear Danny DeVito narrate a pseudo-children’s story written by the Pixies’ Frank Black? Jeff Antebi, founder of Waxploitation Records and mastermind behind the upcoming “deluxe art book” Stories for Ways & Means, has. Ten years in the making, Stories for Ways & Means features short stories and illustrations from 29 songwriter/painter pairings (including Tom Waits, Kathleen Brennan, and Joe Coleman, Nick Cave and Anthony Lister, and Spencer Krug and Sepe, to name a few).

Scheduled to release December 12, the 350-page collaboration is available for pre-order now. All proceeds will go toward Room to Read, Pencils of Promise, 826 National, and a variety of other children’s literacy programs. At $98, these limited, hand-numbered, hardcover first editions won’t be easy to come by! So get moving and order me yourself a copy here. After all, nothing says “happy holidays!” quite like “outre art, weird images, graphic displays of nasty stuff, and cuss words.”
