Syd Barrett Book of Rare Images by Russell Beecher

Essential Works are currently assembling Barrett – a large-format illustrated book centred on the creative life of Roger ‘Syd’ Barrett. Superbly produced, it will be the definitive visual companion to Syd’s work.

The book has been authorized by the Syd Barrett Estate and a percentage of the sales from it will go to the Estate.

This will be a real collectors’ item, featuring:
* High quality heavyweight art paper
* A slipcase in which it is presented
* Cloth cover featuring one of Syd’s artworks
* Full colour throughout

There will be over 100 images covering Syd’s life, out of which more than 60 are unseen and unpublished, including:
* Images from the Barrett family archive
* Images from Nick Mason’s personal archive
* Images from the London Free School Benefit gigs at All Saints Church, the Architects Association gig, the launch of International Times at The Roundhouse, and UFO
* Syd playing with Pink Floyd in Aarhus, Denmark
* Images from the Madcap Laughs session, previously believed to have been lost
Syd’s artwork including paintings, sculptures, and collages, from different points in his life. Many unseen and few, if any, published in book form
* Complete reproduction of the legendary Fart Enjoy
* Illustrated letters from Syd published in print for the first time

It will only be available online and through specialist outlets and with an estimated price of £60. It is likely to be released in the autumn of 2010.
