On this day in 2005, Duran Duran Unseen was published. (it was also re-edited for a later edition in 2008) This is a book by Kaspar de Graaf and Malcolm Garrett and features a very rare and extensive set of photographs by Paul Edmond. The photos were taken during the period of 1979 to 1982, at the very beginning of the band’s career. The photos really show the transformation of the band as they went from being the resident band of the Rum Runner through to just before Rio took the rest of the world by storm. The book features a period in time when the band was learning their own identity and what they wished to project, which makes it an incredible piece of history for fans to have and hold.
