Commemorating the 50th anniversary of the release of Pink Floyd’s The Dark Side Of The Moon, this beautiful, authorized book combines rare and unseen backstage and onstage photography with the visual evolution of the iconic album artwork in one highly desirable album-sized package designed by Pentagram. March 3, 2023 marks the 50th anniversary of the release of The Dark Side Of The Moon by Pink Floyd. Designed by Pentagram to high specifications, this official book commemorates the band and the album. This luxurious book is divided into two parts. The first documents the members of the band between 1972 and 1975, during the making of the album, the album release and throughout the album tours in the UK, US, Europe and Japan through 128 black-and-white photographs. A review of the October 1972 Wembley gig by Chris Charlesworth, originally published in Melody Maker, provides insight into one of Floyd’s most celebrated performances. The second part explores in 65 color images how the original prism motif by Hipgnosis and StormStudios evolved into an array of graphics and homages to the world’s great artists, some of which went on to grace further projects of the band. Co-founder of StormStudios, Peter Curzon, recalls the details of each brief and the development of the graphics over a 50-year period. This is the only book to commemorate the 50th anniversary of one of the most enduring albums of all time. This will be a covetable package for the legions of Floyd fans out there both new and old.
