A complete illustrated history of one of the most popular, influential, and philanthropically-invested rock bands today, the coffee-table book U2 Revolution is combined photographic and written history of U2, from its origins in Dublin through a series of acclaimed and popular albums and international tours.
"...an honest, impressive look back at the band's role in music history." - Neufutur Magazine
"Gorgeously appointed, Mat Snow's U2: Revolution takes you right into the action. "The complete photographic history" along with history, anecdotes and timelines make this book perfect for any lover of the band." - Campus Circle
"Each page is smartly designed to make learning the band's history a pleasure. While there are plenty of professional photographs throughout the book, a unique feature of U2: Revolution is that many images were provided in response to a call for fans to submit pictures of memorabilia, tickets, tour posters and unusual artifacts." - atU2.com

MZS.Press is the online arts bookstore founded by author, critic, and filmmaker Matt Zoller Seitz and directed by Judith Carter. It offers new, used, signed, collectible, and rare books on film, TV, music, photography, and the visual arts. The store was launched in 2019 on a different platform and has expanded to incorporate arts books published by MZSPress's private imprint: titles currently include Seitz's The Deadwood Bible: A Lie Agreed Upon and Dreams of Deadwood, about the HBO Western, and Walter Chaw's A Walter Hill Film.
Our deepest wish is to promote, encourage, and distribute work by small presses, academic presses, and individuals. Extraordinary work tends to get swallowed up on giant platforms like Amazon and Barnes & Noble. The store's inventory of nearly 1000 volumes is currently in the process of being reconstructed after its relocation from Cincinnati, Ohio, to Dallas, Texas. The titles featured here are personally selected by a group of curators and advisors, including Seitz, Carter, and an array of critics, artists, journalists, educators, publishers, and arts mavens who are known for their ability to suss out what Seitz's jazz musician dad liked to call "the good sh*t."
"That's why her hair is so big. It's full of secrets."
