syd by mick rockMany of you will be aware of photographer Mick Rock's stunning "Psychedelic Renegades" book, published as a signed, limited edition by the specialist company Genesis Publications (reviewed in full here). The book reveals Rock's archives of Syd Barrett shots, and indeed his old friend even signed a frontispiece on the first 320, deluxed editions - these are hugely sought after these days as they are one of the few authentic items signed by Barrett himself.

The good news is that a new, non-deluxe version will be published worldwide soon, and we have more details of this for you...

mick rock book 2007 "Syd Barrett: Pink Floyd's Crazy Diamond" will feature a few less pictures, and a little less text, but will include a new introduction from Mick.

 With around 150 colour and black & white pictures across its 144 pages, it is a large format, hard-backed book, printed on good paper stock, as befitting the subject matter.

As our review of the Genesis edition stated, this is an enthralling, and beautiful, look at Syd - said to be Mick's entire archive - and this 'trade' edition should be an essential purchase for all those who couldn't get hold of the former.

The book will be published first in Germany, and can be ordered through this special link to Amazon Germany. They will ship the book, well packaged, worldwide.

There will also be US and UK editions following this coming autumn/fall, but Mick Rock's studios weren't able to confirm exact dates for these. Our thanks to Pati there, and to Hans Gerlitz, for the info.
