Love Songs is the book which compiles all of the words to all of the songs by Crass. Originally published by Pomona in 2004 as a paperback, and out of print for a couple of years and so we felt it was time for a resurrection. Love Songs seems a fitting endpoint to the Crassical Collection - the remastered and expanded CDs of Crass' studio albums.
And so... what have we done here? Well, we've taken the songs and put them in chronological order (something that was intentionally not done for the Pomona edition). Penny has added a new preface and Pomona publisher Mark Hodkinson has added an addendum to his. We've litho printed it on heavy paper, added colour endpapers, fashioned a hardback cover from grey card which is blind embossed with the Crass logo and bound with litho printed spine tape. We've made just 500 copies. We apologise (a bit) for the price but we wanted to do something truly special, hand-made, beautiful. If you already have the paperback there's really no need to buy this again - but if you don't own it, we hope that it's something that you will be able to treasure both for its contents and for the way it was lovingly crafted.
