Ryan Adams Photo Book Trailer: Slideshow Simplicity

Sometimes the best book trailers have the simplest production values.

Abrams Image created a the book trailer embedded above to promote Ryan Adams & the Cardinals: A View of Other Windows–a book of photographs by a band-mate of musician Ryan Adams. Instead of special effects and actors, the trailer used a simple slideshow mixed with a quiet acoustic song by Adams.

Here’s more about the book: “Ryan Adams and the Cardinals: A View of Other Windows reveals an unprecedented, intimate look at Ryan Adams and his band the Cardinals through the evocative photography of lead guitarist, Neal Casal. An intensely personal collection of 200 photographs, Casal has captured the exhilaration of the stage and studio while sometimes exposing the solitary aspects of the creative process and life on the road. With an introduction by Ryan Adams and an afterword by legendary musician Phil Lesh, this collection will be revered by fans and is the official documentation of the beloved band.” (Via IAFYAF)
