Yesterday evening, fans whose pictures have been selected to feature in the Hot Press “Why Can’t We?” book that documents the history of The Cranberries have been informed in an email of the good news:
Greetings from Dublin!I’m delighted to let you know that your photo will feature in thehardback deluxe copy of the Cranberries book!
Hot Press emphasizes that those fan pics will only feature on the Deluxe Platinum Edition of the book, not on the Special Gold Edition.
They also remind fans that the deadline to get the name of the people who preorder the Deluxe Platinum Edition listed as Executive Producers in the book, initially set on Sept 30th, has been pushed back so as to allow more fans to get this chance.
If you haven’t pre ordered that edition yet and want to feature on the list of Executive Producers, do it fast as they’re about to close this opportunity!
UPDATE – OCTOBER 30

Was supposed to be released early october and wasn’t executive producers deadline supposed to be late august. Liars!!
Oh! Oh!! Someone there realising cranberries and Ireland, it makes 2. Desperately seeking for fans abroad to pay for the book. I’ll pass
Are they going to publish the pictures online? Or just sit on them so no one can see them in decent quality?
Why so negativ? We should be thankfull that somebody is putting a high quality book together! Limited edition books from other artists like Depeche Mode, KISS or Elvis are much much more expensive although we printed more books.
On the other hand I was scaptical from the beginn on that even 1000 Fans are where that are willng to pay that amont. No idea how many “real” fans and collectors are still outhere.
