When asked why he decided to create a revised edition, author Ramon Oscuro Martos—who writes for Metal Underground—says: "I didn't want to just re-print the same book again. I had new material available. So, I decided to introduce some changes that definitely bring something new to the table while keeping intact the essence of previous edition. There are new comments, more graphics, but it's still the same book... dramatically improved and updated."
Metal musicians that have supported the book.
The author believes that all the additions "make the book more complete. It's like what happens with an album or a movie: there's the original edition. Then you get the especial edition, the limited box set, etc... For me, this is it. This is the best version of the book I can create and it demonstrates that a creative work can evolve through time and become better, eventually... There's nothing wrong with that."
The Revised Edition of '...And Justice For Art: Stories About Heavy Metal Album Covers' is limited to 300 copies and it's exclusively available right here.
