Marillion guitarist Steve Rothery has opened pre-orders for his career-spanning book entitled Postcards From The Road.

It’ll be shipped in July and is the first of three planned volumes showcasing Rothery’s photographic diaries.

The project has been 15 years in the making and is said to detail what life is like on the road for a touring musician.

It begins with “Steve’s early life in Whitby, North Yorkshire,” and gives “insights into the early days of Marillion through to Fish’s departure in 1988 and the subsequent rebirth of the band with Steve Hogarth.”

Postcards From The Road is limited to just 3000 copies, spans 180 pages and is presented as a hardback coffee table book. It contains more than 400 photographs from Rothery’s career throughout the 80s and early 90s.

The publication is available directly through Marillion’s online store.

The band are currently working on their 18th album FEAR, which is set for a September 23 release. Rothery, Hogarth, Pete Trewavas, Mark Kelly and Ian Mosley head out on the road next month.
