'Lavish... Amazing crystal-clear, the band rehearsing, performing around the globe, playing squash, and enjoying life on the road... Pink Floyd fans will enjoy this handsome collection'
Library Journal

'Combines striking layouts with rare and unseen images'
Creative Boom

'Beautifully presented … the images are deeply revealing'

'In typical Floyd style, they let the images do the talking … a stately addition to the Pink Floyd bookshelf, that allows its audience free rein to interpret its content, just like the album itself did 50 years ago'
Prog Magazine

'A beguiling glimpse of the group and supporting cast on tour'
Record Collector

'Every image has obviously been carefully selected and each one is immaculately presented on the highest quality art paper to make this coffee table book a real thing of beauty'
The Afterword

'This really is a treasure trove of Pink Floyd images, most of which won’t be found elsewhere. It proves a very diverting trip down memory lane, to simpler times, and a real insight into a world that very few people would have had access to. Couple that with the exemplary presentation, and you have a wonderful publication fitting for the occasion'
