Syd Barrett

Catalogue No: PF009MR Artist(s): Syd Barrett, Pink Floyd Location: London Date: 1969 Era: The 1960's Edition: Mick Rock Limited Edition Print type: Giclée Print Paper type: Archival 260gsm Semi-Matt paper

Mick recalled, in an interview for The Guardian "I was meant to go and shoot Syd Barrett upstairs in his flat, but when I saw this car outside I thought: 'F**k it – I need to take pictures of that, too.' It was an incredible prop to have plonked there. If I recall correctly, it was a Pontiac Parisienne, a push-button convertible, and it was pink. Mickey Finn, who became the bongo-player for T-Rex, had picked it up at an auction, and Syd had swopped his Mini for it. But he didn’t have a clue how to drive this massive American car, and it basically didn’t work anyway. You can see the back wheel is a bit wonky. Eventually, it got towed."

  • Print type

    At Rockarchive we carefully select the best print-type to optimise each individual photograph. We have chosen to print this image as a giclée fine art print produced in our London studio.

    A giclée print is the most popular way of producing great quality collectable prints in the digital age. It is produced is by scanning an original negative. The image is then outputed onto the chosen paper using specialist inks to make a beautiful archival print. 

    Paper type

    Archival 260gsm Semi-Matt paper offers professional photographers and graphic artists an additional option in resin coated photographic paper. Highly saturated, high resolution images can now be displayed on an elegant, understated semimatte finish that minimizes glare, while maximizing presentation quality.

    Its 10 mil thickness and extremely wide color gamut will make this paper a favorite among discerning professionals, while its instant drying and non-cockling characteristics make use, handling, and display of finished output trouble-free. It creates highly saturated prints by offering maximum ink coverage and a high D-Max for true photographic reproductions.

  • Delivery

    Delivery charges are added during the checkout process and calculated on a 'by country' basis.

    We aim to dispatch all our prints as soon as possible. If we have the requested print in stock we will arrange to post within a few days. However, in some cases we may require a photographer to sign or send us a print, it will take a little longer to be delivered. In these instances we will notify the customer of when they are likely to receive a print.

    It you have any queries regarding delivery charges or need a print delivered by a specific date, please let us know and we will do our best to sort this out.

  • VAT

    VAT (Value Added Tax) is a tax added to prints and other goods that are delivered to the UK & the rest of the European Union (EU). On our website prices that include the cost of VAT read 'Price inc VAT'

    Prints delivered to countries outside of the EU eg USA, Canada, Japan, Austrailia etc do not have VAT charged to them. So in these cases the price charged will be the one that reads 'Price ex VAT'.

    The current UK rate of VAT is 20%. Import charges may apply to orders delivered outside of the EU. Books are exempt from being charged VAT.

    If you have any queries regading VAT please email info@rockarchive.com

  • Framing

    A great print deserves a great frame. At Rockarchive we would be delighted to advise you on how best to select the right frame for your print. Please just let us know when you place your order or contact us once you have received your print and we will discuss the various options with you.

    If you live in London we can arrange to get your print framed for you. Once the print is framed you can either collect it from our London Rockarchive Studio, in Kentish Town or we can arrange for it to be delivered to your London address (at an extra charge).

    If you live elsewhere in the UK, we can arrange to get smaller sized prints framed and shipped to you. However due to postage regulations acrylic (eg perspex) rather than glass needs to be used in the frame.

    If you live outside of the UK, we are sorry we are unable to ship framed prints to you.

    For all framing enquiries please contact us at info@rockarchive.com or call us on +44 (0) 20 7267 4716
