The Syd Barrett colouring book

Readers of our Retro To Go site might recall the Joy Division colouring book. Well, the people behind that, Piper Gates Design, have produced a second instalment of what's being called the 'doomed poet' series with the introduction of the Syd Barrett colouring book.

Yes, that's right, you can spend the cold winter evenings adding some colour to images of the Madcap Syd and the 60s-era Pink Floyd line-up. There's a four-page cover and eight pages of colouring fun, as well as a free Arnold Layne 7-inch sleeve, which can also be coloured in if Boxing Day turns a bit flat.

Each copy is signed by the artist and the run is limited to just 45 copies. Grab one via eBay while you can (as the Joy Division design sold out very quickly), with each one is available on a 'Buy It Now' for £15.99. Perfect Christmas gift fodder for your average psych head I'm sure.
