A second edition of Mouth Full of Golds, originally self-published to an immediate sellout back in 2021, is arriving soon from IDEA.
The coffee table book is billed as the “illustrated history” of the inimitable “Famous” Eddie Plein, widely cited as the founding father of gold fronts. Alongside contributing elements from a roster of leading creative voices including ASAP Ferg, ASAP Rocky, Goldie, Janette Beckman, and more (all of whom were also featured in the book’s original edition) is a newly included discussion with designer Marc Jacobs.
While Ferg handled the introduction, the book itself was co-penned by Plein with director Lyle Lindgren. Notably, Lindgren is also working on a documentary.
“When COVID happened I was worried that Eddie’s legacy would be reduced to a pitch document and a 3 minute teaser trailer; so I took all of the work that we’d done and decided to make this book,” Lindgren said in a recently shared press release.
This run of the book from IDEA is limited to 2,000 copies. A launch is set for Feb. 9 at Dover Street Market New York. Below, get a closer look at the full cover for this new edition.
