With the publication this month of the new, limited edition book from Wymer Publishing in the UK, called "Pink Floyd - Captured Through Time", we have a special competition for you to win one of two copies of this book, which is an edition of just 500.

Captured Through Time is a photographic celebration of the band that takes you on a journey from the psychedelic, avant-garde sixties to the present day including off stage shots of all band members.

The publishers note that many of the photos have never been published in print before, including a sequence of shots from the Animals tour in 1977 that have only just been developed from the original negatives and digitally restored for this publication.

In total, over 100 glorious images of Floyd both on and off stage through the decades are included in this large format hardback book. Housed in a bespoke, custom-made, buckram presentation box with holographic block foil, it also includes 3 prints, ideal for framing and is strictly limited to 500 worldwide.

You can order the book directly from the publishers at The book will not be available to purchase elsewhere, so this will be the only place you'll be able to get a copy - unless you are a winner in our latest competition.

With thanks to the publishers, two lucky BD visitors will each get a free copy of the book, in our latest competition. To enter, all you need to do is answer this question correctly:

  • Pink Floyd's 1977 tour went under which name, later to be found on the album of The Wall?

Well done you two; your books will be on their way to you directly from the publishers shortly. Commiserations to everyone else who entered and better luck in our next competition!
