The Making of Pink Floyd The Wall by Gerald Scarfe

Pink Floyd's The Wall is one of the most iconic and imaginative albums in the history of rock music, endlessly discussed and dissected. It is loosely based on the life and experiences of Roger Waters and the stage performances and film were created in close collaboration with Gerald Scarfe. They are currently at work on the new version of the stage show. Gerald retains all the imagery and amongst this massive archive there are hundreds of photographs of the creation, staging and filming of The Wall as well as the live stage performances. Roger has allowed us to reproduce all the interviews and texts associated with the production of the album, the stage performances and the film. This is to be the authorised, definitive book of The Wall.
