Last year, celebrated rock photographer Kevin Cummins published Assassinated Beauty, his book of photographs of the Manic Street Preachers, chiming with the 20th anniversary of their seminal album, The Holy Bible. At the time of publication, we interviewed Cummins, who kindly put together a taster gallery of his work, including the above shot of Richey Edwards and Nicky Wire from their first NME cover – have a look/read here.

Cummins is also exhibiting the photos at London’s Proud Camden gallery and the exhibition’s just had its run extended to the end of January. To celebrate this, courtesy of Proud Galleries, Faber & Faber and Jack Daniel’s, who are partnering with the gallery for the launch, we’ve got a copy of the book, signed by both the band and Cummins, to give away, along with a bottle of JD whiskey. To be in with a chance of winning, just send an e-mail to, with CUMMINS in the subject line, by midday Monday 26 January, after which we’ll pick the winner at random.
