The Big Book Of Who Killed Amanda Palmer is being released this July. However, this first-run only book is being printed in 10,000. Once they’re gone, they’re gone. There’s already a large amount going to Amanda Palmer fans that have pre-ordered in the past with the Who Killed Amanda Palmer album Pre-Order. But once those are gone, the rest goes up for pre-order. 

The pre-order starts on Monday, April 20th. The time looks to be around noon EST. Pricing for the book hasn’t quite been announced yet, but I can’t see it being horribly expensive. This is a rare opportunity for Neil Gaiman fans and Amanda Palmer fans alike. The book features photography by many, many brilliant artists. I’ll be sure to post a review when my copy from the Who Killed Amanda Palmer album Pre-Order along with favourite photos and credits for the brilliant photographers. 

Anywho, keep an eye on The Shadowbox and Neil Gaiman’s website for more pre-order information. This book is extremely limited so if you want a copy, be sure to pre-order.

UPDATE 04-19-09

The book has been announced for pre-order on Monday, April 20th, 2009 at THIS web address. Pre-order is estimated to start around 12PM EST.

Amanda Palmer — Who Killed Amanda Palmer Vids

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , on August 12, 2008 by Em Wyllie

 

Amanda Palmer of the The Dresden Dolls has put together a rather fantastic album to release as her first solo effort. With Ben Folds’ help, Amanda has created a solid album that’s sure to remain a classic on Dolls Fans, Indie Snobs, and general Music Lover’s shelves for a long, long time. 

As I’ve mentioned before in this blog, the title is Who Killed Amanda Palmer. A reference to Twin Peaks (Who Killed Laura Palmer) that’s since come to take on new meaning for Amanda and fans. Amanda has collaborated with several recognizable artists to complete the whole Who Killed Amanda Palmer saga. Neil Gaiman is writing short stories for a photobook shot by Kyle Cassidy. Ben Folds produced and played on a number of the album’s tracks. Amanda developed several of the songs and played and even recorded with them. 

With the help of Michael Pope, a celebrated indie director in Boston, and friend of Amanda’s, a series of videos was shot as a concept short film based around the Who Killed Amanda Palmer concept. These videos are slowly being released via YouTube and several other mediums. I’ve embedded the released videos so far after the break. 5 Out of 8 have been released so far. Expect updates when the last three are released!
