Florence Welch announces book 'Useless Magic'


Florence Welch, of Florence and The Machine, has announced that she is to be releasing her first book via Fig Tree Imprint, a derivative of Penguin Books. Titled Useless Magic, the book is a collection of her lyrics, poems and art from her sketchbooks.

Fig Tree’s publishing director, Juliet Annan, said in a press release, “I have long wanted to persuade Florence to write a book, and this will be a beautiful record of her songs, a glimpse of the ideas that have inspired them, and a first look at her poetry.”

Florence added “I am so thrilled to be collaborating with Penguin on my first ever book release,” Florence added. “It is such an honour.”

Useless Magic will be out on July 5, 2018 and you can see the cover art below.
