After Lou Reed's death on Sunday, Da Capo Press is hoping fans may want to turn to books to remember the iconic rocker. The press has two titles about Reed on its backlist--a collection of his lyrics called Pass Thru Fire (2008), and Clinton Heylin's visual history of Reed's band, The Velvet Underground, called All Yesterday's Parties: The Velvet Underground in Print, 1966-1971 (2005). Now, Da Capo is going back to press on both titles.
A spokeserperson for the press said that it has ordered another 2,000 copies of Pass Thru Fire, but has not yet decided on the reprint number for All Yesterday's Parties. Additionally, both books will be featured on the iBooks store's "Hot This Week" list, next week, at a price point of $3.99.
