KATE is a collection of beautiful images from throughout her career.

These stunning images are accompanied by two new essays by John Carder Bush: Inside the Rainbow, describing in vibrant detail their shared childhood and the early, whirlwind days of Kate’s career, and My Sister, My Sitter, which vividly evokes John’s experience of photographing his sister.

‘For me, each of these images forms part of a golden thread that shoots through the visual tapestry of Kate’s remarkable career. Storytelling has always been the heartbeat of Kate’s body of work, and it has been a privilege to capture these photographic illustrations that accompany those magical tales’ JOHN CARDER BUSH

His sister is the composer and musician Kate Bush, and John’s poetry narration and backing vocals have been used on several of her albums. He headed the Kate Bush management team for twenty years and since her early childhood, and throughout her career, John has photographed Kate both candidly and professionally. His images have appeared on iconic album, single and magazine covers worldwide.

    Does anyone have any news regarding the limited edition yet? Otherwise I shall go ahead and order from Amazon but I would prefer the LTD one if it is going to become available.

    • Hi Kelvin, I’d hold off for just a little while, I expect the publishers to give me some news on this in the very near future, in advance of the regular edition release date.
