Well I stumbled on this book whilst looking at how the new Pink Floyd Immersion box sets where doing. I was dissapointed with how much was missing from the The Wall Immersion sets so I put my hard earned MONEY on this book instead and was not disapointed.
When it first arrived I must say the size of the book, an inch wider than A4 and with approx 250 pages put a smile on my face! Its got a great beginning with Mr Scarfe reminiscing with the remaining members of Pink Floyd and Alan Parker and nice to see pictures of them all getting along now after all the trouble they had making the concept album.
Its contents are an excellent read I must say, the stuff I learned from this book is not in any of the other Pink Floyd books, you learn about how Gerald first worked for the Pink Floyd and how he came up with back drops for the live shows before The Wall. The drawings are amazing, Gerald goes into how he and the rest of the team came up with the designs even explains how some designs were dropped and shows us all these great colourful images.

I say its a mighty fine book and now lives next to all my Storm Thorgerson books on Pink Floyd album art.

Format: Hardcover
A lavish presentation on a turbulent period in the Pink Floyd story, while Gerald Scarfe has a long history with Pink Floyd it's 'The Wall' that he is most associated with.

Gerald Scarfe through anecdotes and the insight of being present sheds interesting light on the difficult times Pink Floyd (Roger Waters in particular) had making The Wall album and film, artistic endeavour and egos of three very strong personalities (Roger Waters, Gerald Scarfe and Alan Parker).
Packed full of high quality images from the film and art work associated with the Wall and some prior projects.

A must for Pink Floyd fans and makes a brilliant accompaniment to Nick Mason's book `Inside Out' on Pink Floyd also available on Amazon.

I watched the film back in 1982 in a cinema in Worcester. The soundtrack was LOUD. I left the cinema awestruck. I was 14 and at the time had never seen a movie that dealt with such a strong alienation. I "loved" the film, with the music/images/hatred/animation. It shocked me. I had never seen scenes of war showing Brits suffer. Indeed, The Wall movie contains the cheery boys of the Dambusters. The film has remained my all time favourite ever since.

Now for this book. If like me you find the film a classic then you may wish to know some of the stories behind the album, concerts,film, Berlin 90 and the Tour 2010/11, but mostly the film.

Gerald Scarfe chats with Nick Mason, David Gilmour, Alan Parker and of course Roger Waters in turn. Jane Scarfe (Jane Asher) was involved with the writing and editing of this 258 page (slightly larger than A4) book. The book is lavish, with many rare pictures and drawings included.

If you are of a certain age then you may have seen "Arena - Scarfe on Scarfe" that only touched the surface of where this book goes.

Thanks, Gerald for such a wonderful book on one of the most brilliantly depressing albums / film / concert (I was front row for Berlin'90).

And well done on getting the others to add their comments to.

Thanx for reading.

A very good, interesting, and complete book about The Wall era (1978-1982)...
The book is filled with Scarfe's works for the Floyd and everything is explained or commented not only by Scarfe himself but also by R. Waters, D. Gilmour, N. Mason and A. Parker (the director of the film version). For every Floyd-fan - it's a "must have"! And furthermore, it's a great companion piece to "Mind Over Matter" by Storm Thorgerson.

The most in depth book about The Wall i have ever read and probably ever will.With input from Roger Nick David nothing is left out,the sheer weight and feel of the book is pleasing giving you a sense your in for some learning and that is just what this book offers.The stunning Scarfe animation from birth to actual images used in the film are beautifully drawn and presented and if you needed explained.This without doubt is the go too book on all things The Wall and more besides i recommend this to your hardened Floyd head or the casual reader of rock history.Well done all concerned with the book and great to have input from all parties still with us.

The main reason I ordered this book was because I'm going to write my BA thesis about "The Wall" and it's social criticism but getting to know this book has already given so much more than just very good material about the topic; quietly but steadily it intensifies your enthusiasm with "The Wall", until you feel a little Pink growing inside you too. Very vivid and thorough and every music fan's must-have book.
