Nick Mason's Inside Out limited edition from Genesis Publications Print E-mail

As we reported back on February 9th, and April 8th, specialist book publishers Genesis Publications have collaborated with Nick Mason, producing a very special limited edition of his fantastic book, "Inside Out: A Personal History Of Pink Floyd".

Genesis have taken 500 of the First Edition of the book, re-bound them in leather, got them signed by Nick and included in a 'box of delights' designed and assembled by Storm Thorgerson, who will also sign this unique limited edition box set. Only 500 sets will be available, and will be offered initially to existing Genesis customers.

They have today announced that orders are now being taken for this very special edition, which will be available from September this year, from, now priced at £750 plus shipping. Full details of the edition, as described by Genesis themselves, are shown below.

Nick had this to say about the edition: "I bought the original Derek Taylor book (Fifty Years Adrift) from Genesis and loved it - since then I've collected a number of their books and never been disappointed... I wouldn't like Brian (Roylance) to get big-headed about this, but I was rather honoured to be asked if I'd like my book Genesised."

The Genesis website includes pictures from the photoshoot Storm did, for the new cover image. Storm directed the shoot at Syon House in London on 19th April 2005, and uses the highly polished mirrored balls as previously seen in the Interstellar exhibition poster.

Each strong presentation box is handmade in buckram to a design specification which securely holds in place all the fascinating elements of this unique collectors' edition. An image created by Storm Thorgerson is set into the front above a silver foiled logo. The spine lettering is also in silver foil.

A full leather bound numbered and signed copy of Nick Mason's highly acclaimed book "Inside Out, a personal history of Pink Floyd". Each copy is hand bound in goatskin by the craftsmen at The Abbey Bookbindery. A full colour image created especially for the limited edition is set into the front cover.

The page edges are silver foiled and there is silver tooling on the spine and front.

In his 3,500 word monograph booklet (exclusive to this boxed set), Nick describes with considerable wit his new experiences as a successful author. He writes about the rest of the band's reaction to the book but the real humour comes from his recollections of his book-promotional activities in various countries. This is printed on acid-free heavy cartridge stock.

There are two fine art prints, size 20' x 15'. They are both created and signed and numbered by Storm Thorgerson. Each one is silk-screened in 27 colours on Somerset tub sized 410gsm paper, by Coriander Studios. Each is a superb collector's item in its own right.

To demonstrate his commitment and enthusiasm for the project, Nick Mason has kindly coughed up 500 assorted Pink Floyd backstage passes from his personal collection - there are at least 7 different kinds of backstage pass. One pass to each box.

One minute a fine art print, the next a T-shirt design. Was Picasso this adventurous? Another exquisite creation from Storm. A great shirt too, one size (medium) only. Colour: mushroom.

There's also a woolly hat with 'Hi' logo. So, it's a hi hat. Storm's idea of course. Warm in winter but like the T-shirt, you probably won't want to take it out of the box.

What else in the box? A pair of American hickory drumsticks prepared for Nick Mason especially for this edition by Pro-Mark. Also a drum key with lanyard and Paiste cymbal badge/tiepin.

You may not receive the same backstage pass as another subscriber and you most definitely won't receive the same Polaroid print. That's because we've taken 500 different shots of Nick at work on the project. So the Polaroid in your box is unique to your boxed set. By now we hope that you'll agree that this is a very impressive box of delights. As usual with Genesis products, the quality is second to none.

Finally, to ensure there's no spare space, there's a set of 12 postcards in a hard cover wallet, depicting the band in various incarnations, together with more imagery including alternative versions from Storm.

An incredible collection of "antiques and curios" to use a phrase from the band's back catalogue. Nice to have the unique touches of Nick's own backstage passes and an individual polaroid of Nick hard at work.

Place your order now, before it is too late, through
