Hot Press

The Hot Press Covers book

- The Script’s Danny O’Donoghue described appearing on the cover of Hot Press as the fulfilling of a life-long ambition. Imelda May said the same thing. As did Ireland’s latest superstar Hozier, who confessed that it was something he had always dreamed about.

To mark 40 years in the music business – and to celebrate the success of the

Hot Press Covers Exhibition – we’ve put together Covered In Glory: The Hot Press Covers Book, which will contain beautifull­y hand-restored prints of our finest covers over the last four decades.

The book, which comes in two attractive formats, tells the stories behind the covers and provides a remarkable look at the inner workings of the magazine, as well as offering superb insights into the artists, stars and celebritie­s that adorned the covers over the years. Among the artists featured are Madonna, Nick Cave, Van Morrison, Tom Waits, Enya, Snow Patrol, Noel Gallagher, Grace Jones, Sting, Blur, All Saints, Bjork, Paul Simon, Radiohead, PJ Harvey, REM, Patti Smith, U2 – and dozens more of the leading lights of modern music.
