Fantastic book, a must purchase for album art lovers and audiophiles. Quite a large book and heavy. I have never seen anything like it and love the story behind this great artist. He inspired Pink Floyd's Dark Side of the Moon cover. A must read, totally engaging. Great gift.

a beautiful book and very interesting about aspects of the recording industry
