The Pink Floyd Exhibition: Their Mortal Remains - Official companion book (German language edition)

Another bit of news for our German friends - the German edition of Pink Floyd: Their Mortal Remains, the official companion book to accompany the exhibition of the same name is scheduled for publication on July 6th 2017.

It's the first book ever produced with full access to the Pink Floyd archive. Published to accompany the V&A's major summer exhibition, Pink Floyd: Their Mortal Remains celebrates 50 years of one of the greatest bands of all time. Five essays tackle different aspects of their far-reaching legacy in music and the visual arts.

Authors including Jon Savage, Howard Goodall and Rob Young examine what makes the band truly special, from the mythology underpinning their output, through to their experimentation with technology to create new sounds. Their epic staging and performance impact is also explored, along with the anti-authoritarianism that infuses their lyrics.

The book is heavily illustrated throughout, emphasizing the essential role that visual material played in supporting the music and creating the lasting Pink Floyd phenomenon. Obviously, we really recommend it to those who are going to see the exhibition, AND to those who won't be. It doesn't really spoil things for those who are, as it more complements the exhibition rather than repeats what you'll see there. Details of the English version of Pink Floyd: Their Mortal Remains can be seen here. We suspect the German edition - like the English language hardback - will also feature a spectacular lenticular cover which has to be seen in the flesh.

You can place your order now for this German edition of the book directly from Amazon Germany. Our thanks to Michael Nickel for info about another German publication.
