    DescriptionThrough his songs and lyrics, Kurt Cobain became one of the Twentieth century's most emblematic and resonant icons. By the time of his death in 1994, whether he wanted it or not, he had become one of the world's most famous and revered musicians. He left behind a legacy which has continued to influence musicians the world over. When his journals were published in 2002, they articulated the creativity and despair of a contemporary genius and the world in which he lived. Now for the first time, his fans will get an even more searing insight into what drove Cobain the man as well as the musician when his artworks are revealed to the world in this extraordinary and revelatory book. An art student by training, art was Cobain's primary means of unlocking the darker recesses of his mind. Here is a visceral trip through the contents of that mind - through painting, sculpture, drawing, graphics, the reader gets a very physical sense of Cobain's state of mind and an unparalleled idea of how creatively expressive he was in other media than music.
