The book of the exhibition, Philip Lynott: Still In Love With You, has been launched as PledgeMusic project.
Following the 28th anniversary of Philip Lynott's death in January 1986, a major publication – drawing from one of the world's most comprehensive collections of personal rock archive material – will be produced this year... and fans can get involved!
Two lavish limited edition books on the life and career of the legendary Philip Lynott are set to be published, and fans in Ireland and worldwide will get the opportunity to have their name and photo published in the books themselves!
Still In Love With You: The Philip Lynott Exhibition opened in Dublin in 2011 to rave reviews and ran for an incredible eight months. It subsequently moved to London for a successful run at The O2, before returning to Dublin for another three months. The exhibition was widely acclaimed by musicians, fans and the media. Since then, Hot Press has been inundated with requests from those who want to experience the exhibition again – or who missed it and want to see it for the first time.
In response to these calls, we're set to publish Philip Lynott: Still In Love With You – The Book of The Philip Lynott Exhibition.
Fans of Philip Lynott and Thin Lizzy, all over the world will be able to make pledges exclusively through PledgeMusic. These pledges will not only make the ambitious project possible; they will also allow fans to become a real and interactive part of the creative journey of these new music projects...
– Luxury A4 Hardback Book: 260 lovingly-designed pages telling the story of Philip Lynott and Thin Lizzy, and highlighting the exhibition's most popular showpieces. The book will feature a veritable treasure trove of Philo memorabilia, and will offer a powerful insight into the life and work of an extraordinary artist. From lyric books and guitars to stage clothes and Philip’s personal diary, it brings together an extraordinary collection of personal material, to create a fascinating picture the legendary rock star.
In addition, any fans who took a photograph of themselves at the Philip Lynott Exhibition in Dublin or London can feature in the book. Simply make a pledge and you'll have the opportunity to submit a photo. It's a remarkable opportunity to be an even greater part of this historic project.

Each copy will be personally signed by Philip's mother, Philomena Lynott, whose My Boy book (published by Hot Press) was a No.1 bestseller in Ireland.
