Woodkid’s “The Golden Age”

Mar 21st, 2013

Last year I was approached to illustrate the special edition of Woodkid’s debut album, “The Golden Age”. Woodkid, aka Yoann Lemoine, is an illustrator and is a well-known video director and had big plans for the limited edition packaging. Very big plans. A BIBLE. An illustrated bible with an original story, cloth-bound embossed cover, etc. The songs form a continuous narrative, as do the videos.

It’s all very baroque and audacious, especially in this age. But people have responded: this special edition was sold out in pre-orders. I’m really sorry to report that, but I hear there may be more books produced (?). I’ll let you know. Of course, the regular album is on iTunes, etc.

I was very flattered to be a part of the project, because Yoann poured his heart and soul into this project and it’s always a great thing to work with someone that has such an exquisite and singular artistic vision. Below are a few select images (there are 14 total in the book).
