The Half-Life
of Syd Barrett,
Pink Floyd’s Lost Genius

by Tim Willis

Field-Tested by Brian Taylor

in Orlando, Florida

I read Madcap while visiting Florida for the first time last November. Some might say an appropriate setting for the bizarre story of the founding member of Pink Floyd, whose short career ended with a collapse into madness.

This book attempts to debunk many of the myths surrounding the recluse, and brings his extraordinary story up to the present day. Hardcover, but a slim 174 pages.

Brian Taylor is an artist, designer, and animator. He can be found at XL5 Design, or at his on-going film project, Rustboy.
