We're delighted to announce Reinhard Kleist in conversation with David Quantick on Saturday the 14th of April, 7.30-9pm, to celebrate the launch of Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds: An Art Book!

In his graphic biography Nick Cave: Mercy on Me, Reinhard Kleist paints an expressive and enthralling portrait of the musician, novelist, poet and actor. It is, according to Nick Cave himself, "a complex, chilling and completely bizarre journey into Cave World".

Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds: An Art Book collects Kleist's moody and expressive portraits of the musician and his band, spanning thirty years of writing, recording and live performance. Kleist also returns us to Nick Cave's imaginative world with comic book reimaginings of "Deanna", "The Good Son" and "Stagger Lee".

Filled with visual delights, this record-sized art book is a kaleidoscopic portrait of Nick Cave's wide-ranging career as a storyteller, musician and cultural icon.

Reinhart Kleist's award-winning graphic novels include Johnny Cash: I See a Darkness, The Olympic Dream: The Story of Samia Yusuf Omar and, Castro: A Graphic Novel. 

David Quantick is a writer and journalist whose recent work includes work on Veep with Armando Iannucci and How to Be a Writer: Conversations With Writers About Writing
