The Art Of Rush: Serving A Life Sentence will feature original illustrations, paintings and photos by Syme, who has designed the band’s artwork since the 1975 album Caress Of Steel.

The 272-page coffee table volume was created by music journalist Stephen Humphries and includes interviews with Geddy, Alex and Neil Peart, along with Syme himself.

Neil Peart says: “From the first time Hugh and I met, we shared a level of communication that would sustain us through all the years of discussing art by long distance.

The book will be available in three versions: a Classic Edition, a signed, individually numbered Special Edition limited to 250 copies, and a Roadcase Deluxe Limited Edition featuring custom slipcase, signed lithograph and metal-plated casing. Only 100 of these will be available and all will be autographed by Syme and band.
