"Jeanette is one of the few people who really understands how pop & creativity work,” Jarvis Cocker writes in the foreword of the book. "That its about a certain combination of certain people in a particular place & time. That it can’t be recreated or rehashed or trotted out on the Heritage Circuit. You can’t learn it from a book. But you can be inspired by a book. You can look at these pictures & see people living together, working together, exploring together, experimenting together. Where does the play end & the work star? Can anyone tell? Is there a difference?”
Private Image shows an unpublished compilation of Polaroids photographs taken by Lee, former Public Image Limited (PIL) band member and co-owner of Rough Trade. A magical period!
With introduction by Jarvis Cocker and a conversation between Jarvis Cocker and Jeannette Lee. This book sheds candid light on this formative period of the band's history!
