For the arena tour hardbound photo book and the exquisite, suitable-for-framing 12" X 12" prints, Ryan Chang photographed GHOST on tour over the course of a year, documenting the band's live performances throughout Europe, Canada and the United States, including the special guest spots on METALLICA European "WorldWired" stadium tour this summer. The 12-page booklet of new prints was created by GHOST's longtime visual collaborator Zbigniew M. Bielak, offering 10 stunning illustrations, each one a visual representation of the 10 songs on "Prequelle".
"Prequelle" was produced by Tom Dalgety and originally released in on June 1, 2018. The album was nominated for a Grammy Award as "Best Rock Album", and for Sweden's Grammis award as "Best Rock/Metal Record Of The Year", and Dalgety received a Grammy nomination as "Producer Of The Year." Both Revolver and Kerrang! magazines named "Prequelle" the best album of 2018, and the album produced three Top 10 singles — "Rats", "Dance Macabre" (both of which went to No. 1 at Rock Radio) and "Faith".
