‘We must do this,’ was Michael Jackson’s comment when he learned about the plans for a revolutionary new book about his life. The name of this book? The Michael Jackson Opus!
It will contain new and handwritten lyrics, drawings and pictures from the King of Pop’s personal archives. There are photo’s from rehearsals for some of his pop videos that have not been made public before. The Opus will also include one of his favourite performance photographs, taken during his Bad tour in Minneapolis in 1988.
What makes the book even more special is a special feature called “augmented reality”, with which a computer and webcam can be used to show 3D images emerging from the pages. The King of Pop was really excited about it and thought it was grand on a scale he had never seen before.
The Opus books are usually limited editions, but this one will have an unlimited run until a certain date. The Michael Jackson Opus will be handbound in leather in a silk clamshell case.
