LOOK: FILTER x Mission Workshop Present “Lucid,” A Tycho Travel and Tour Book

Last year, we told you about the one-of-a-kind collaboration between San Francisco–based apparel company Mission Workshop and soundscaping Bay Area electronic musician Tycho.


Now, the images that Marc Lemoine captured of the band on and off stage during the tour leading up to the release of their new album Awake have been transformed into a 36-page soft-cover book called Lucid. Lucid is a unique and dynamic documentation of the band's journey on tour and an intimate snapshot of a defining moment in their careers—illustrated in Lemoine's dynamic photography, driven by the artistic direction of band leader Scott Hansen and his work as a graphic designer and artist, and narrated by our own managing editor Breanna Murphy's interview with Tycho from issue 55.


A limited run of Lucid will be available during Tycho's current tour (see below for dates) and you can see more at MissionWorkshop.com/Tycho. Check out a digital version of Lucid below, as well as video documentary of the project after the jump!
