Autumn de Wilde turns her lens on Elliott Smith (new contest)

Insound is teaming up again with Fuel/Friends to give away another music prize -- the book Elliott Smith by Autumn de Wilde. This is "a portrait of the beloved and troubled singer/songwriter by those who knew him well. Complementing de Wilde's riveting, personal images are ephemera, handwritten lyrics, and revealing talks with Smith's inner circle, many speaking here for the first time. Also included are a foreword by Beck Hansen and Chris Walla, and a live CD of unreleased solo acoustic performances."

Autumn de Wilde also did the video for Elliott's "Son of Sam": [thx]

Enter to win the book here through December 10th (and even though there is no confirmation page after you submit your name, I am assured it is working). Looks pretty sweet; I've been listening to a lot of mopey Elliott Smith lately. The book is part of Insound's Holiday Gift Guide.

This is a beautiful book - lots of cool interviews and amazing pictures. I had the chance to interview Autumn over the phone this past spring and she was so nice and fascinating - I had to end the interview after 50 minutes because I felt guilty that I was taking too much of her time!

Enter the contest, people!
