The Pink Floyd Exhibition: Their Mortal Remains official companion book

Published on May 13th, 2017, is Pink Floyd: Their Mortal Remains, the official book (planned to be 304 fully illustrated pages) to accompany the exhibition of the same name, which opens at London's Victoria & Albert museum on the same day.

It's the first book ever produced with full access to the Pink Floyd archive. Published to accompany the V&A's major summer exhibition, Pink Floyd: Their Mortal Remains celebrates 50 years of one of the greatest bands of all time. Five essays tackle different aspects of their far-reaching legacy in music and the visual arts.

Authors including Jon Savage, Howard Goodall and Rob Young examine what makes the band truly special, from the mythology underpinning their output, through to their experimentation with technology to create new sounds. Their epic staging and performance impact will also be explored, along with the anti-authoritarianism that infuses their lyrics.

The book is heavily illustrated throughout, emphasizing the essential role that visual material played in supporting the music and creating the lasting Pink Floyd phenomenon.

The book has been put together by Victoria Broackes and Anna Landreth Strong. Broackes is Senior Curator and Head of Exhibitions for the Department of Theatre and Performance at the V&A. She has produced a number of successful touring exhibitions, including You Say You Want a Revolution? and David Bowie Is. Landreth Strong is Curator of Modern and Contemporary Performance at the V&A.

UPDATE: the hardback features a wonderful, lenticular cover - featuring a very dynamic, moving picture of the Dark Side prism. It needs to be seen in the flesh!

Orders placed before publication will benefit from Amazon's pre-order price guarantee - if the price drops at any point between your order, and the publication date, they automatically will charge you the lowest price.
