The Hollywood Reporter revealed on Monday that Norman Reedus, better known as Daryl Dixon to fans of AMC’s “The Walking Dead,” will publish a photographic book containing pictures he’s taken from around the world over the past 15 years.
“The Sun’s Coming Up … Like a Big Bald Head” will publish on Oct. 31 – get it? Halloween? Zombies? – and will contain 132 pages of pictures the actor has collected during his career.
“It’s a really nice hardcover book and it’s very personal,” Reedus told THR.
While the book has no specific theme, Reedus says his intent is to make “disturbing images beautiful.”
Since he can’t take pictures on the set of “The Walking Dead,” Reedus set out to capture the horrific images of the dead (undead?) by snapping shots of various road kill, some of which are in the upcoming book.
“The Sun’s Coming Up … Like a Big Bald Head” is available for pre-order for $60 and will retail for $75 once it hits the market in October.
Really? Are we that desperate for anything from the world of “The Walking Dead”?
This viewer/reader isn’t and neither should you be.
Maybe Reedus does take good pictures, but the subject matter doesn’t particularly scream of the type of art for which the book-buying fan base yearns.
Be patient, everyone, we’re down to less than eight weeks until “The Walking Dead” returns on Oct. 13 – which, ironically, is the inverted number of the Reedus book’s release date.
