Book arrived very quickly from the US. Love it. Thank you. Great photos of a great band.
Grew up w/ The Bunnymen. So grateful for this book OMG.
I love the book, thanks so much!
My Echo and the Bunnymen library was incomplete until I picked up Steve Rapport's book Under Blue Moon! With so many lush photos to gaze upon my standouts are probably Les Pattinson at McGonagles Dublin, Will Sergeant at Royal Shakespeare, Pete de Freitas at Royal Albert Hall, and Ian McCulloch at Howth Harbor (pg 34.) Steve's photography of The Bunnymen is shows their youth, their eyes searching but knowing, light and shadow play, in action playing their instruments, and so much vulnerability. You can sense it in the group photo on pg 53 - standing together on Ha'penny Bridge, Dublin Ireland. There will never be another band as grandiose as Echo, as mystical, questioning, tortured, or intense. I'm forever thankful for Steve having been there and memorialized their essence.
Beautiful art...the photos, the book, the clear communication about the book/ordering, and fast delivery!!! Amazing!!!
The book is wonderful
The bunnymen looks great
Stumbled upon this hidden gem of a gallery of British pop and rock and roll photos. Stephen was extremely helpful and super nice in helping me choose this Echo and the Bunnymen photo book as a gift. Definitely check out this gallery.
Phenomenal pictures! I saw the band at least 100 times between 1981-1985. This book captures the energy and beauty of this band. Great job! Thanks!!
A beautiful book. Love Steve Rapport’s evocative style, moody, expressive & intimate, & capturing the essence of the young Bunnymen. Thanks also for the signed print & the care you took with postage, Steve! Sending my best from AU.
I was bought this for my 60th birthday.
What a treat!
Great book about a great band from a great period in music history.
Signed and numbered copy by Steve. Plus a lovely message. What a great fella!

I absolutely love this book! Very high quality product . The photos really give me that nostalgic feeling I had when I first got into The Bunnymen back in the day! It's like having every tour book in one volume! Except the photos are even better. There are some photos of Pete that are worth the price of admission alone. Also, Steve is an awesome guy that takes excellent care of every transaction. The book was a birthday gift to myself (Lol) and Steve even took the time to included an Ian McCullouch card with personalised birthday wishes! Thanks again Steve for making this special glimpse into my favorite bands past possible! Cheers!

Wonderful shots of the Bunnymen. I can't say the Bunnymen are my most favorite band of all time but I anytime I get a chance to see them play live, I do. And that has been a lot. It's nice to have a photo compendium of what feels like, at this point, old friends that have been a constant throughout life.
Excellent picture book, well curated by the author.
A lovely lovely book . Some great photos , overcoats a plenty ! A wonderful reminder of a misspent youth!
Great book and photographs of a band just on the cusp of their own legend. Steve’s images of the Bunnymen live are amongst the best I’ve ever seen and really convey the mood. Excellent essay thanks Steve. Fast delivery to the UK too.
Great quality book, from the front cover to the photos inside. it is a collectors item and one to treasure..love it.
Love this, a total must for Bunnymen fans.
This is a beautiful book with a capital b.
If you were mesmerized by the Bunnymen in the early eighties, especially when you have seen them live, you will love the pictures by Steve Rapport. It captured my memories when I saw them for the first time in 1980 in Amsterdam. They blew me away then when I was 20. The music still does in 2021.
My book arrived the day before I left for a one week vacation, and I just opened it for the first time this morning. I am thrilled with the photographs within it, and pleasantly surprised that it is one of only a limited collection. It is a great book that will go well with other music coffee table books I own.
Whether it will skyrocket in value is not of concern to me. I am just very pleased to have this book as part of my collection.
Impressive service, fabulous, glossy photographs. from a very happy customer. Thank you.
As a collector of Bunnymen material this book, and it collection of rare and unique photos from the golden age of the Bunnymen is a delight. Capturing the band both in concert and at leisure it evokes a magical time and wonderful memories of a great band.
A fantastic book for Bunnymen fans. Some excellent pics which I'd never seen before. Also the book is excellent quality, really well put together

Really nice photos up close and personnel
“Under Blue Moon” is a generous and magical treasure, a must for Bunnymen fans. These early 80’s glimpses of the group capture both innocence and destiny. These photos have a rare and elevated intimacy, a stark and naked beauty. You can hear the sound the Bunnymen coming from these pages.
It’s a book, a very classy book showcasing the Bunnymen during the period when they were at their most powerful. If you followed the band at that time the you will recognise most of them from the NME etc. Steve captured the essence of the band and kudos to him.
Fantastic images as ever Steve!
A beautiful book ... a much treasured gift to a special fan ... surely a must for dedicated Bunnies
I was impressed by the prompt delivery too.
This will be cherished, for sure.
Thank you so much.
A great collection of photos beautifully presented. Plus, being an international customer I scored the bonus print! Yay!
Takes me back to those turquoise days!
Excellent photos , most I’ve never seen.
A must purchase for you Bunny fans!
Fabulous- The Bunnymen’s Ogden era captured perfectly!
“Under Blue Moon” is truly a gorgeous book & a must-have for any Bunnymen fan! The photos are stunning & Steve’s stories introducing them add to the band’s mythology. Finally, everything about this physical product is first.-rate, from the glossy photos to the thick paper to the solid feel of the binding. An awesome book - thanks, Steve!
Súper fast shipping. Great quality and of course the photographs are absolutely phenomenal. Couldn’t be more pleased!
