Take one acclaimed singer-songwriter and pair him with one of the most talented young artists of his generation and what do you get? A stunningly original visual documentary of one of the world's best-loved and most successful musicians of his generation.

With words by Ed Sheeran and illustrations by his childhood friend, artist Phillip Butah (who produces artwork for Sheeran's albums and singles), and accompanying photos, Ed Sheeran: A Visual Journey is an exclusive, fully authorised, first-person account by Ed of how he became an internationally renowned singer-songwriter.


In the book, Ed explores his early musical experiences and influences as well as his time recording and touring, right up to the release of his second album, 'x'. The book reveals what drives and inspires Ed as he continues to evolve as an artist, while coping with stratospheric success, and is an honest account of what it takes to make it in the music business.

With Phillip Butah's distinctive portraits of Ed throughout, this is a unique book celebrating a unique musician. It includes Ed's recollections of working tirelessly on the London gig circuit and self-releasing EPs, working hard on finding his sound, signing to Asylum Records and recording his huge hit album, '+', performing at the Grammys, touring with Taylor Swift and sell-out headline gigs at Madison Square Garden. It takes us up to Ed as a musician today, including recording his new album, 'x'.

About the Author

Ed Sheeran - was raised in Framlingham, Suffolk, and moved to London in 2008 to pursue a music career. He is a double BRIT Award winner (2012), for British Breakthrough and Best British Male, an Ivor Novello winner and is twice Grammy-nominated. His album '+' debuted at number 1 in the UK, and was certified quintuple platinum, and he's now a global success - touring the US with Taylor Swift in 2013 and with number 1 hits in numerous European countries. This summer sees the release of Ed's second album 'x', and his first UK arena tour in October.

Phillip Butah - in 1998, aged just 16, Phillip was the youngest prizewinner in the competition Young Artists' Britain: The Prince of Wales's Young Artists' Award. He went on to study Fine Art at Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design in London. He lives and has his studio in the East End of London. Phillip has collaborated with Ed on artwork for his singles and albums, and says of the book: 'I love working with Ed - it's a real privilege - and I'm really excited to be collaborating with him on such an exciting project; his music, talent and achievements inspire me.'
