A.V. Club Announce Robert Pollard's ‘100' Album Art Book

 A.V. CLUB ANNOUNCE ROBERT POLLARD'S ‘100'
ALBUM ART BOOK


GUIDED BY VOICES ANNOUNCE SUMMER TOUR DATES
 
'AUGUST BY CAKE' OUT NOW IS ROBERT POLLARD’S 100TH ALBUM!
 
The A.V. Club announced the release of Robert Pollard's album artwork book, '100'.

On April 7th, Guided by Voices released August By Cake. Not only was it GBV's first double album, it was also the one hundredth album that Robert Pollard has released since 1986's Forever Since Breakfast. To put that in perspective, Bob Dylan has released roughly 39 studio albums since 1959. And that includes the Traveling Wilburys.

To commemorate this historic achievement, Rockathon Records is releasing 100, a beautifully bound coffee-table book reproducing the front and back covers for all 100 albums.  Less a testament to Pollard's extensive career and more a study in album art, the book is a large format (12x12) hard cover document containing over 200 pages printed to the edge.   Available at www.RockathonRecords.com 

Says Pollard:  "The book is more about the art than the achievement itself.  It's an art book.”

Guided By Voices also has added new summer tour dates:
