JOSEPH ARTHUR TO RELEASE 
FIRST EVER BOOK OF ORIGINAL ART 

We Almost Made It - Limited Edition Run Of 5000 Copies 
Includes New Instrumental Album The Invisible Parade 


May 8, 2006 Critically acclaimed musician Joseph Arthur will release his first ever hardcover book of original art titled We Almost Made It on May 18th, 2006 through 14th Floor Publishing. 

Arthur's book will be a limited edition run with only 5000 copies being made available to the public. Fans can log onto beginning today for pre-sale information. A brand new 21-track mostly-instrumental album called The Invisible Parade will accompany every copy of the book. 

"This project started as a zine, with drawings and poems and turned into an art book with a soundtrack, Joseph commented. "Typically a package is built to support and protect the music; this was the other way around. The music was built to support and protect the package. In a digital age this could be considered a throwback to a time when the artwork was important. 

Arthurs original paintings have become a hot collectable for his fans. During each of his live performances he constructs a new piece of art live on stage. Arthur recently held his first ever major art show at the Vertigo Galleries in London this past February. We Almost Made It is the first time a collection of his artwork has been made available for publication. 

Joseph Arthur will be returning to London to perform two shows at Queen Elizabeth Hall on June 1st & 2nd. His latest studio album Our Shadows Will Remain is currently drawing rave reviews from the UK media. 

Arthur recently produced Greg Connors new album, Here, There And Anymore and lent his vocals to several tracks of the forthcoming Twilight Singers album Powder Burns. Currently, Arthur is putting the finishing touches on a brand new studio album expected to be released in the U.S. this fall.
