Captured on June 22 2010 in London, Tim Hailand’s upcoming One Day in the Life of Jake Shears book finds Jake in bed at St Martins Lane hotel at 8:15 am, and follows him throughout his day in black and white photos; showering, a BBC radio session, lunch with composer Nico Muhly, Akiko, and Jonathan Pierce of The Drums, off to the famous Brixton Academy.
The images then burst into gorgeous color as Jake and his Sisters take to the stage for the first concert of the “Night Work” world tour! Returning to the black and white world, Jake jumps in a car back to the hotel, dinner in bed and finally to sleep.
This book features an accompanying text contribution by Jake himself, and introduction by Sir Elton John.
The first edition of this 104 page book is limited to 3,000 copies worldwide. It is in pre-order now for the special price of $30, and will ship out in February 2011. A portion of all book sales benefit the Elton John AIDS Foundation
