U2 rule the world. At the recent Grammy awards, the band took four. Bono was nominated as Man of the Year by Time magazine. Their tours attract more people and generate bigger revenues than anyone. And now they've conquered the print media with this remarkable pictorial.

Anton Corbijn, the group's official photographer since 1982, has assembled a potpourri of photos capturing the band at various stages of their career. There are shots from the recording studio, in concert, on the street, posed, candid, black and white, color, backstage, no stage, and upstaged. Accompanying copy is supplied by a variety of essayists including the author himself, Bono, Wim Wenders, Salman Rushdie, Bill Clinton, and a coterie of others.

If you're a U2 fan - and apparently everyone in the world is - the $100-plus pricetag won't put you off. The group is captured in all its brooding, mournful, and dark glory, and if you haven't seen enough of Bono's deep and brooding visage staring back at you from hundreds of magazine articles, online sites, and television shows, then this will satisfy you for a hundred lifetimes.
