According to a recent article in The New Yorker magazine, Jack White talks about the vision he has for Thirdman Records. “He wants the company to produce objects and projects he cares about, in the belief that if they appeal to him and his staff, they will appeal to others, even if they appear pointless,” the article states.
Apparently, White’s latest vision includes joining the ranks of the likes of David Bowie, Sir Paul McCartney, Keith Richards, Bob Dylan and Sting, all musicians who have written a book for children.
