UK, Genesis Publications Limited. 2001. [Rock Photography] SIGNED LIMITED DELUXE EDITION. Folio (31 x 26cm), pp.160 with approximately 120 monochrome and colour images, some folding plates. Number 84 of 320 copies SIGNED by both Mick Rock and Syd Barrett, the former in black marker to limitation page, the latter to special plate tipped onto verso. Finely bound in full orange and turquoise morocco, with gilt titles to spine and vertical gilt ruling to boards. All edges gilt; photographic endpapers. Housed in a sumptuous Italian orange pictorial cloth slipcase. A fine, as-new copy in the original card mailer. Comprising the entire Syd Barrett archive of legendary music photographer Mick Rock; this finely produced volume covers the period 1969-71 and features the photo session in and around Syd's London flat which culminated in the cover for Syd's first solo album The Madcap Laughs, and a further session at Syd's family home in Cambridge. Includes some of the most famous images of Syd Barrett, plus a wealth of previously unpublished images. Accompanying these extraordinary pictures is a fascinating text providing insights into one of the world's truly cult figures, a 'mad bohemian poet' in the words of Mick Rock. For Pink Floyd founder Barrett continues to intrigue past and present generations alike and has been the subject of a tremendous rock mythology ever since his withdrawal from the music world in the early Seventies. It was Mick Rock who undertook the last ever interview with Syd for Rolling Stone magazine in 1971, and his original version of this memorable article is reproduced here, in full, for the first time.
