- The ground-breaking art and packaging created by design firm Hipgnosis and its founder Storm Thorgerson
- The continent-hopping tours that supported the album and also introduced the songs before its release
- The rock group’s trajectory post-Dark Side, including notable albums, tours, and the departure of WatersPopoff also takes you on side journeys examining each band member, session players, prog rock, the Live at Pompeii concert and film, Waters’ singular writing technique, Dark Side collectibles, awards, and more. There’s even a brief discography and complete LP tour dates.

Presented in a 26.7 × 26.7 cm slipcased book, Pink Floyd and The Dark Side of the Moon is illustrated with stunning performance and candid off-stage photography as well as rare memorabilia.
