The Wu Tang Clan is one of the biggest hip hop ensembles in history. Now, the legendary Staten Island group is proving their weight with a limited-edition large format coffee table photo book titled Wu Tang Clan: Legacy, which will wrap more than 300 pages of pictures inside a 400-pound steel and bronze sculpture. There will be only 36 editions of the weighty chamber created by sculptor Gethin Jones, which has been described as the biggest and rarest book in hip hop history. The bronze-encrusted black steel chamber sculpture, which looks like the FIFA World Cup trophy emblazoned with the Wu Tang logo, opens up to reveal the 21″ x 21″ book, which will be signed, dated and numbered and feature a certificate of authenticity alongside rare and unseen photos from famed photographers Danny Hastings, ProTim Photo, Kyle Christie and Andy Cantillon as well as friends and family of the clan. The book will be printed and bound in leather in Italy, with Jones’ sculpture inspired by the ancient past and the bronze ritual bowls of the Zhou Dynasty whose first ruler was King Wu-Tang, with the chambers consisting of Spun Mild Steel bowls while the raised ridges, base and logo are furnished in solid brushed brass.
