Sonic Youth’s Thurston Moore has already founded a record label and co-written a few books, including upcoming art photo book Grunge, so it makes sense that he’s ready to start his own book publishing company, as well. Starting next year, Moore’s new boutique publishing company, Ecstatic Peace Library, will begin releasing art books by Raymond Pettibon, Dave Markey, and, his wife/bandmate, Kim Gordon, reports LA Times. The “Ecstatic Peace” moniker marks a continuation of Moore’s record (and cassette!) label by the same name.
We know who a couple of Moore’s first couple authors are, but what will be the first releases for ‘10? If you attended the New York Art Book Fair this weekend, you may have come across their upcoming catalog, but the rest of us will find out on New Year’s Day at Ecstatic Peace Library dot com.
Oh Thurston, there you go outcooling us all again.
