Syd Barrett's "Fart Enjoy" book now on eBay Print E-mail

Syd Barrett - Fart Enjoy pageIn the latest fund-raising effort in aid of The Syd Barrett Trust, the book that Syd created by hand in late 1964/early 1965 went up for auction last night on eBay.

Fart Enjoy was a book he came up with for a friend of his - Andrew Rawlinson - and has only been on public display once: as part of the fascinating Interstellar exhibition held in Paris at the end of 2003 (an illustrated report of which can be read here). A scaled-down reproduction of Fart Enjoy was also included with the deluxe edition of the 40th anniversary release of Piper At The Gates Of Dawn.

The auction is set to run for 10 days, and within just a few hours of it going live, the bidding has already reached (at time of writing) £10,500. Click here to visit the auction, which includes a passage written by Rawlinson giving the story behind the book. You can buy prints (framed or unframed) of pages from the book here, and visit Syd-Barrett-Trust.org.uk to find out more about their work and aims. The very best of luck to those of you who will be bidding on the item... it's for a great cause.

UPDATE: bidding closed at a healthy £12,600 which will certainly benefit The Syd Barrett Trust nicely.
