Pearl Jam's groundbreaking 1998 video the song "Do The Evolution" is the subject of a new book called Pearl Jam: Art Of Do The Evolution. The 200-page, full-color hardcover reveals the full story behind the creation of the clip, which was all animated and Pearl Jam's first music video in six years.

Directed by comics legend and Spawn creator Todd McFarlane, along with Batman: The Animated Series animator Kevin Altieri, the Grammy Award-nominated video told a graphic and dark history of the world in four gripping minutes and is widely considered one of the best music videos of all time.

The new book will include animation cells from the video, never-before-seen storyboards and designs, and a step-by-step guide through the process of bringing the band's vision to life.

Pearl Jam: Art Of Do The Evolution is due out October 6th from IDW Publishing and is currently available for pre-order via online booksellers and comic book specialty retailers. A press release described it as "essential reading" for Pearl Jam devotees, animation fans and anyone with an acute interest in music video history.
