Prince Pre Fame“ is a book featuring a collection of photos by Robert Whitman highlighting one of the most important music artists of the 20th century. The pictures were taken in 1977 at the request of Prince’s music manager, Owen Husney who had just signed the young pop star. The images were used as press kit materials sent to record companies.

The “Purple Rain” singer would eventually rise to stardom and this book is an important reminder of the icon’s persona and style in his earlier years. Additionally, in celebration of the release, an exhibition will be held to showcase these never-before-seen images of the Purple One. The event will also include a book signing.

You can now RSVP at prefame.info for the special event happening at the One Art Space Gallery in New York which runs from December 15 to 17. The book can also be purchased on December 14 at Vero. In related news, the Prince Estate just dropped special Prince-themed apparel.
