Barrett

By
Russell Beecher and William Shutes

Barrett is the only official Syd Barrett book. Produced using the finest materials, this large format book is the definitive visual companion to Syd’s life. Full of unseen and rare images of Syd and Pink Floyd, the book also collects and catalogues for the first time artworks and photographs by Syd himself.

The book has been made in conjunction with the Barrett family. Their recollections together with access to their family art and photograph archive have combined to show reveal Syd the creative, a man who was a dedicated, practising artist throughout his life.

The book splits into three sections:

  1. Syd’s life in photographs – from growing up through to working and performing with Pink Floyd and his life as a solo artist.
  2. Unseen and unpublished illustrated letters sent to Libby Gausden-Chisman and Jenny Spires between 1962-1965, as Syd was finding himself as a painter and a musician.
  3. All of Syd’s existing work as a visual artist from 1962 until his death.

The book contains over 250 images. These include:
