Syd Barrett – Mick Rock Signed “Psychedelic Renegades” Limited Edition Genesis Book (Pink Floyd)
A beautiful signed, limited-edition example of photographer Mick Rock’s tribute to Syd Barrett, Psychedelic Renegades, published by Genesis Publications. This highly sought after book is an extraordinary celebration of the late Pink Floyd founder.
From the Genesis website:
Psychedelic Renegades covers the period 1969-71 and features the photo session with Mick Rock in and around Syd Barrett’s London flat which culminated in the cover for his first solo album The Madcap Laughs, and a further session at Syd’s family home in Cambridge. Not only does this exquisite book reproduce in the highest quality, for which Genesis is renowned, some of the most famous images of Syd Barrett, there is also a wealth of images which have never before been published. Many have not even been previously printed up from the original historic negatives.
Mick shared a personal friendship with Syd which began in the mid-Sixties when they met in Cambridge and flourished when they both lived in London, where at one point they shared a flat. One of Syd’s closest friends, the artist Duggie Fields, writes frankly and with humour about his friendship with Syd. In his perceptive text he describes life in the Earl’s Court apartment which he shared with Syd and where the Madcap shots were taken in Syd’s famous bedroom with the striped floorboards.’We were psychedelic renegades exploring an inner landscape where everything was turned upside down. We had penetrated the looking glass and were living in a parallel dimension where everyone was beautiful and spiritually free.’ Mick Rock
