Black & White (Magazines 1 to 28)

Black & White is a German quarterly magazine dedicated to Michael Jackson, edited by Captain EO Productions. The name of the magazine is a reference to the title 'Black Or White'.

28 issues were published between January 1996 and February 2000, each magazine has nice colour glossy 36 pages in A4 format, it includes 2 big glossy colour posters.

Considered to be the largest magazine dedicated to Michael Jackson in France (by its fame, quality and availability), Black & White has also led the Captain EO Productions team to be noticed by the artist himself; Several collaborations led to the release of official objects: a collection of trading cards Panini (1996), a 'Ghosts' box set in 1997 (including the unpublished song 'On The Line'), the creation by Christophe Boulmé of the poster of 'Ghosts', the cover of the single 'Stranger In Moscow' and the poster of his concert at Madison Square Garden in 2001, and the participation in 'HIStory's booklets and the reissue of his first CD, 'Greatest Hits: HIStory, Vol. 1' (2001).

On the strength of its German and French success, the magazine team has released 4 issues of its English counterparts (HIStory Magazine).

Black & White has always had a special place for many fans. It was the only German magazine that handled the information in a correct way, without scratching the dates or facts and offering quality photos. A magazine by fans and for fans.

Not only will you learn a lot about Michael and his relationship with Sony Music, but you will also discover the extraordinary adventure of these three fans (Julien Derain, Laurent Hopman, Christophe Boulmé) who, in a few years, have become close collaborators of King Of Pop and how Black & White, a small magazine made by passionate became the official magazine of Michael Jackson. Their vision of his career since 'Thriller' is relevant and very detailed on some aspects. The anecdotes are numerous and the beautiful photos.

Here below you see the fronts of the 28 magazines.
