In 1995 I wrote about this book by Håvard Rem:
This beautiful book was published simultaneously with the Norwegian tribute album. Contents: a short history of Cohen, all lyrics of the tribute CD (translated by Håvard Rem), interview with Cohen made by Håkon Harket and Håvard Rem at Grand Hotel in Oslo in 1992, discography, bibliography and a listing of Norwegian, Danish and Swedish Cohen translations. The book ends with some information about Tyrili Foundation. And there is more: a special edition of the tribute CD is inserted in a black pocket. The book is in a cardboard box, decorated with the girl and the moon (see below).
The book has been almost impossible to find. I don't know if this is also a new edition (and if the special CD is inserted into the book). Anyway, if you follow the link in the first post to Platekompaniet, you will find a special offer of the CD and the book!
