The Art of Classic RockPublished at the end of September, The Art of Classic Rock: Memorabilia, Tour Posters and Merchandise from the 70s and 80s is the wordily-titled new book from Goodman Books. The 256-page, large hardback book takes a look at the collection of Rob Roth, who has obtained rare examples of these items for forty years.

His spectacular collection is so vast that it has never all been put on public display but now many of the pieces have been lovingly catalogued. With over 750 colour photographs, it promises a "lavishly produced presentation of some of the most vivid and exciting artwork from the rock world featuring bands such as The Rolling Stones, Queen, Pink Floyd, The Who, Led Zeppelin and every other major rock act of the era". Each section of the book features a particular band covering different tours and different albums to show how design and graphic styles changed and to provide an overview of rock history from the period.

We're hoping to bring you more information on the exact Floyd content shortly; in the meantime, it can be ordered at a discount of up to 45% off the normal price (at time of writing) from Amazon UK, Amazon US/International, Amazon Canada, Amazon Germany, or Amazon France.
