Seattle writer Charles Cross first saw the storage facility containing the late Kurt Cobain's quirkiest possessions while researching Heavier Than Heaven, his 2001 biography of the Nirvana frontman. Cross recently sifted through those boxes of journals, recordings, artwork, and trinkets—or what the author calls "a never-before-seen dark museum of fucked-up-ness"—to produce the new photo book Cobain Unseen (Little, Brown, $35). Accompanied by a CD of spoken-word recordings of Cobain unearthed by Cross, the book's 150 still lifes offer a haunting testament to Cobain's creativity. As the musician wrote in his journal, "Look at my stuff and figure me out." Matt Hendrickson
