Talk about the passion.


As a close friend of the legendary band, David Belisle roamed the world with R.E.M. for many years, resulting in a very intimate and inspiring body of work.


Headquarters spent many afternoons with David, hovering over a mountain of small prints, making various groupings and discussing the best way to pace the experience. We designed a book that created a window into REM’s world. It captured the energy of being backstage, and the intimacy of their behind-the-scenes moments.


“Headquarters showed great enthusiasm through every step of the design process. The result is that the book feels so personal, like you’re really hanging out with R.E.M.”
