Brian posted 27th November 2010 04:32:16 PM. Report You can order the book directly from Ewen Spencer's website: http://www.ewenspencer.com. Once there, just click on the "Shop" link. Not sure what stores has the book in the UK. But I would imagine it would be easy to find. If you are in the US, you are out of luck, the book is not sold here. I would suggest his website. Take care.
"Third Man Records is proud to announce the long-overdue reissues of the first three LP’s by The White Stripes.
Out-of-print in North America since 2005, the utmost care was taken in presenting these records in the best way possible.
We started by mastering each LP from the original analog master tapes, the first time this process had been used for any of these titles. While extremely labor-intensive, this method ensured that the material was never converted into a digital signal. The result is an audio quality that stiffens the hairs on the back of your neck.
We pressed each record on 180-gram vinyl, again, the first time any of these three albums have been afforded this superior vinyl weight.
For artwork, we started from scratch and went back and tracked down all the source material, working from the original photographic prints to provide the crispest versions possible of these album covers.
From there, we printed the artwork on the deluxe old-style, tip-on sleeves from the wonderful folks at Stoughton Printing in California. This process involves printing the artwork on on sheet of paper (a slick) which is then folded over and hand-glued to a heavy board blank jacket. The difference in the final product of a tip-on sleeve as opposed to a regular, direct-to-board sleeve is akin to the difference between hardcover and paperback books.
Also, for the first time ever, each record comes with a coupon for MP3 downloads of the entire album.
All these factors together makes these versions of The White Stripes, De Stijl and White Blood Cells the DEFINITIVE editions of these albums. These are the versions The White Stripes want people to have for posterity.
And to tickle the collectors, we pressed limited numbers of each title on split-color red and white vinyl. All three albums will be available on black vinyl for purchase from our online store starting on November 30th. The split-color and black vinyl of The White Stripes will be available for purchase on November 30th in our Third Man Records store front, with the split-color and black vinyl of De Stijl and White Blood Cells to follow on December 7th and December 14th, respectively."

Jack White has dropped a few hints regarding a regrouping of the White Stripes in the December issue of Vanity Fair:
"In an interview in the December issue of Vanity Fair , Jack White hints that a White Stripes reunion might be just around the corner.
In the interview (not online), White is asked why he's releasing the group's first three albums on vinyl, along with The White Stripes Merchandise Collection, an elaborate $499 boxed set that includes a record player, headphones and more.
"We thought we'd do a lot of things that we'd never done: a full tour of Canada, a documentary, coffee-table book, live album, a boxed set," White says. "It was one long project that took almost three years. Now that we've gotten a lot of that out of our system, Meg and I can get back in the studio and start fresh."
DANGER MOUSE TO TEAM WITH JACK WHITE ON HIS LATEST PROJECT
Danger Mouse enlisting Jack White for his latest project. It's an interesting combination to say the least:
"Explained Danger Mouse: “For the lead vocalists, I definitely wanted a man and a woman. The female vocal needed to be soft, not polarizing. But the male needed to have a bit more angst to it. I played some of the music for Jack White when I was on tour shortly after doing the first session, just to show him what I was doing, because at the time everyone thought I was just a hip-hop guy, or whatever. He liked it, but at the time I wasn’t even thinking of using him – you know, it’s Jack White. But in the end, I thought, he’s really into it – why not? We all understood that if it didn’t work, it didn’t work. But he tried it in different voices – a high voice, a low voice, and I thought, why don’t we leave them all in? And it sounded great. There’s a bunch of his vocals on “Rose With the Broken Neck”, and it doesn’t always sound like him – sometimes you’re like, is that Jack or not?” The Guardian reports that Norah Jones will also be featured."
