The Book of Love

Spanish publisher Contra has recently released the book The Book of Love: 100 Canciones, a compendium to Mr. Merritt's songs.  The book features lyrics of several of Mr. Merritt's songs, in the original English and Spanish translations.  It also features both English and Spanish versions of Stephin Merritt's "The Formulist Manifesto," the tyrannical essay mentioned at length in Strange Powers: Stephin Merritt and The Magnetic Fields.  The book seems to be a perfect companion to Mr. Merritt's Spanish-speaking fanbase, which I understand to be quite sizable.  Find more information at Contra's website and Facebook.

The Line of Best Fit has posted a(nother) video of Mr. Merritt in his hotel room, playing "Andrew in Drag" in similarly-hued but slightly different clothing.  Watch below:
