After a brief period at London's Royal College of Art, Gerald Scarfe established himself as a satirical cartoonist, working for PUNCH and PRIVATE EYE during the early 1960s. He has had exhibitions worldwide, including in New York, Osaka, Montreal, Los Angeles, Sydney, Melbourne, Chicago and London, and 50 one-man shows. He has designed sets and costumes for plays, operas and musicals in the UK, US and New Zealand; written, directed and appeared in many live action and documentary films; and published numerous books of his work. Scarfe has been political cartoonist for the SUNDAY TIMES for over 40 years, has worked for THE NEW YORKER for 17 years, and his work regularly appears in periodicals. Gerald Scarfe received a CBE in the Queen's Birthday Honours 2008. He has had a long association with Pink Floyd - as the designer and director of animation for the Floyd live show WISH YOU WERE HERE in 1974, for THE WALL between 1970-73 and for Roger Waters' THE PROS AND CONS OF HITCHHIKING in 1984.

The book is full-colour and full of great pictures & illustrations.
It tells you all there's to know about the graphics behind, in front and on the Wall.
As a Pink Floyd fan the only reason not to buy this book is being broke because you bought to many tickets to the 2010/2011 the Wall tour...
A nice addition to the collection, but not a must-have.
