Pink Floyd: The Dark Side Of The Moon - Official 50th Anniversary BookBack in October, we told you about the official hardback book being published in March 2023 as part of the 50th anniversary of the release of The Dark Side Of The Moon by Pink Floyd.

We now have a few more details of the book, which is being sold separately as well as being included in the 50th anniversary The Dark Side Of The Moon Deluxe Box Set. It is published on the same day as the box set is released - March 24th.

Curated by Jill Furmanovsky, with art direction by Aubrey 'Po' Powell, this LP-sized book - with 143 illustrations - showcases rare and previously unseen photographs, and was created with the involvement of the band members.

The book includes:

  • Rare and previously unseen backstage and onstage photography of the band during The Dark Side Of The Moon tours of 1972–1975 in the UK, Japan, North America and Europe
  • 129 candid photographs by Jill Furmanovsky, Storm Thorgerson, Aubrey Powell and Peter Christopherson document the soundchecks, the shows and the after shows
  • A review of the October 1972 Wembley gig, originally published in Melody Maker, provides insight into one of the Floyd's celebrated performances
  • A complete listing of the tour dates
  • A special section that reveals the visual conception of the iconic album artwork, with photos of the original album roughs and final artwork by Hipgnosis

Sounds like an essential book - and orders are now possible through a number of retailers.
