Description

This special edition of the book is accompanied by an exclusive original artwork print, personally signed by the artist, available with the 100 copy limited edition of The Art of Pink Floyd's The Wall. The print shows Gerald Scarfe's interpretation of the horrors that lurk behind the character Pink's personal defences: the smothering Mother, the cruel, sarcastic Teacher and the cold, poisonous Wife. These were all inspired by Roger Waters lyrics for the legendary 'Wall'.



The Art of Pink Floyd The Wall is a sumptuously illustrated book, collecting Gerald Scarfe's iconic work for Pink Floyd. First The Wall was an album, then it was a stage show, a film - now there will be the definitive book, which will be a work of art in its own right.



This large, landscape-format book, presented in a stunning slipcase designed by Scarfe, is packed with photos, drawings and designs which will incorporate the iconic imagery of The Wall alongside new and previously unseen material.



Forty years on, The Wall has lost none of its impact, and its themes are more relevant than ever. Presenting the phenomenal artwork as it has never been seen before, The Art of Pink Floyd The Wall is a must-have for any Pink Floyd fan.
