This iBook brings together highlights from Weller’s signed limited edition book and record boxed set. Weller and Watson discuss the content and the making of INTO TOMORROW, giving additional insight behind the photographs they have hand-chosen in a new 40-minute interview.
Lawrence Watson: ‘Paul’s always very involved in choosing pictures; he’s got a great eye.’
PAUL WELLER: ‘When I look back to the early shots from 1992, I was starting to write and play (and, importantly, want to play) again. I’d been ‘away’ for a while and didn’t know what, if anything, to expect… So many memories come back. Some of the pictures make me mourn the passing of time. Some of the times I couldn’t wait to get away from. Lawrence has been there to document most of them. He is part of our crew.’
