We reported on 3rd September of the publication on November 3rd of "Drawing Blood: Forty Five Years of Scarfe Uncensored", an eager-awaited book that sees highlights of Gerald Scarfe's career compiled into a lavish hardback book.

Gerald Scarfe: Drawing Blood
Gerald Scarfe: Drawing Blood
The book is a real feast for all Floyd fans, due to his extensive work with the band, over the years, featuring a few illustrations from The Wall which haven't been seen before - alongside the five decades of incredibly varied work he has done for all sorts of people and publications.

We recently interviewed him, and should be bringing you the transcript shortly, along with a review of his new book. In the meantime, a number of new events have been lined up:

  • Wednesday 23rd November: book signing and illustrated talk at Warwick Books. 7pm
  • Thursday 24th November: book signing and illustrated talk at Borders, Oxford Street, London. 6.30pm
  • Thursday 24th November: special screening at the National Portrait Gallery, London. 7pm. A chance to see SCARFE ON SCARFE - THE SELF PORTRAIT (BBC, Arena, 1986). A unique opportunity to see Gerald Scarfe and filmmaker Anthony Wall introduce their BAFTA award-winning film. This documentary has been buried in the BBC archives for years so catch this rare outing. Anthony Wall will introduce the film and will answer questions with Gerald Scarfe afterwards. For more details visit: www.artistsonfilm.co.uk and www.npg.org.uk

We had the pleasure of attending one of Gerald's illustrated talks in London, last year, and another this month in Brighton, and both were fascinating and amusing looks at his career, including his work with Pink Floyd. Definitely worth going to one of these, if you can.

Orders for this essential title, at time of writing at a good discount, can be placed through the following special links: Amazon.com (US/International), Amazon UK/Elsewhere, Canada, France, or Germany.
