Only 36 copies of the large-format coffee table book will be printed.
The book’s debut arrives on nearly the thirtieth anniversary of the Wu-Tang’s acclaimed 1993 album, Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers). Only 36 copies of Legacy will be published, making it one of the rarest books in hip-hop. Each book is signed, dated, and numbered and comes encased in a bronze-encrusted black steel chamber that was designed by sculptor Gethin Jones as an homage to the 36 chambers. A single copy of the book will be auctioned off at Sotheby’s.
“Items dating back hundreds, even thousands of years have graced the floors of Sotheby’s,” RZA said. “It’s great that in our own lifetime, we were able to create something that will also grace these floors and be shared with the world.”
Wu-Tang: Legacy will be available for pre-order on Friday, December 16, 2022, at 3 P.M. ET/12 P.M. PT.
