“Black Celebration: Depeche Mode 1986", features rare and previously unseen photographs of the band taken by Andre Csillag during the band’s UK tour of the same name.

As Andre says:

"In early 1986, I was approached by a publisher to take pictures of Depeche Mode with a view to doing a book on the band. In April that year, I joined  their "Black Celebration” tour; meeting up with the band at the Oxford New Theatre and then Brighton Centre. I later rejoined them on their tour bus for the Birmingham NEC and London Wembley Empire Pool shows where I found out that the publisher had gone bankrupt and, as a result, the book project was cancelled." 

"Considering how private Depeche Mode are, during the short period of time I spent with them they were extremely accommodating and friendly and I thank them for allowing me access. As such, it’s a shame and a regret that this project never came to fruition. These pictures have sat unseen in my archives for over 30 years as there was no reason to use them. I’m delighted to now be able to publicly share them thanks to - and in association with - Hanging Around Books.”
