Limited edition Syd Barrett bookAnnounced this evening is "Barrett", a new book which the publishers describe as "the definite visual companion to the creative work of Roger 'Syd' Barrett". A limited edition, high quality, large-format book, it focuses on the creative life of Syd. It's been authorised by the Syd Barrett Estate and a percentage of the sales from it will go to the Estate.

We've had a special preview of a number of the images to be included, and we are certain that this will be an absolutely essential book for all fans of Syd Barrett and the early Pink Floyd. It's a mesmerizing selection of pictures, not just Syd's artwork and letters (incredible in themselves), but rare photos including live, backstage, and portrait images, and endearing family snapshots – a collection the like of which has not been seen before.

With the Syd Barrett estate benefiting from sales of the book, Floyd fans have every reason to snap this book up!

It will only be available online and through specialist outlets, and is expected to be published in Autumn/Fall 2010, at a projected price of £60. Find out more, and register your interest, at now.
