Wax Poetics leads the field in musical journalism, covering some of the most famous and fabled figures in the history of hip-hop, jazz, funk, and soul. This special edition features content from some of the magazine's rarest, most-coveted issues, many of which fetch top-dollar at auction. This compilation, featuring in-depth articles and a bold, graphic, textured facade, maintains the same collectible traits that make the original issues so highly sought-after. Presented in an attractive hardbound format, featuring hundreds of full-color, full-page images, including photos and illustrations new to this edition. Wax Poetics magazine, published bimonthly, has garnered some of the industry's highest accolades and continues to boast some of music's most talented writers, photographers, and illustrators. The Wax Poetics Anthology, Volume 2 is an important supplement for existing Wax Poetics readers, and an infectious introduction for newcomers to the magazine's approachable yet insightful style. Makes a great companion to the similarly-designed and critically-acclaimed Wax Poetics Anthology, Volume 1, which featured select articles from the magazine's first five issues. First published in December 2001, Brooklyn-born Wax Poetics hit newsstands with a new vision for music journalism. Many magazines at the time were covering the artists of today, but coverage on classic material was noticeably lacking. Wax Poetics created a bridge between old and new, revealing the numerous connections between our musical forefathers and our music's future. From jazz pioneers like Eugene McDaniels, Sun Ra, and Joe Zawinul to influential hip-hop artists like DJ Premier and the Beastie Boys, Wax Poetics Anthology, Volume 2 presents music's numerous puzzle pieces and gives the reader the opportunity to make the connections themselves. In addition to shedding light into the dark corners of our sonic past, Wax Poetics ensures that new and innovative artists also get the credit they deserve."
