Promo text for that previous book:

.

Prince Treasures paints a beautiful, colourful portrait of the unique and much-missed artist Prince.

.
Azhar tells the story of the utterly unique artist through insightful text, stunning photographs and removable facsimile memorabilia, which includes posters and tickets from significant performances and recordings, sample album art and other rare items, all sourced from exclusive private collections.

.
Written by award-winning BBC journalist and Prince obsessive who has interviewed many of Prince's colleagues, friends and associates.

.

Aha: Welbeck is the owner of Carlton since April 2019: https://www.thebookseller...oks-979886

.

Publishers Mark Smith and Marcus Leaver have set up a new publishing group and acquired Carlton Books.

.

The pair’s venture, Welbeck Publishing Group, will acquire a number of established companies, starting with Carlton, and develop start-up businesses in scalable market areas. Welbeck will focus on illustrated non-fiction and children’s books for the co-edition market alongside commercial fiction and non-fiction.
