Most widely held works by Bob Geldof
Pink Floyd the wall by Alan Parker( Visual )

63 editions published between 1979 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 956 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The story of the wall" is told simply with the music of Pink Floyd, images and natural effects. There is no conventional dialogue to progress the narrative. The story is about Pink, a rock and roll performer, who sits locked in a hotel room, somewhere in Los Angeles. Too many shows, too much dope, too much applause, a burned out case. On the TV, an all too familiar war film flickers on the screen. We shuffle time and place, reality and nightmare as we venture into Pink's painful memories, each one a "brick" in the wall he has gradually built around his feelings
The Georgia straight : a 50th anniversary celebration by Doug Sarti( )

2 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 361 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This highly illustrated and beautifully produced coffee-table book brings together over 100 of the Georgia Straight's iconic covers, along with short essays, insider details and contributor reflections, putting each of these issues of the publication into its historical context. For 50 years the Georgia Straight has served as the voice of reason during a number of turbulent times. With fearless tenacity, the Straight has always taken the good fight to the powers that be, whether they come in the form of big business, city hall, the provincial legislature, parliament or just plain human folly. While known for hard-hitting journalism and pointed prose, the Straight has also always been a purposely visual publication. With eye-catching design strongly reflecting the times - from '60s psychedelia to new-millennium computer graphics - the newspaper has charted a course through both artistic trends and meaningful writing. Together in one place for the first time, this collection of Straight covers spans five decades of newsworthy figures, events, issues and pop culture. A visual time capsule of sorts, it's a significant graphic chronicle of both the counterculture and recent Vancouver history - after all, if it was important, entertaining or inspiring, the Straight covered it. With work from a multitude of artists using various media and contrasting styles, this collection illustrates - literally - how the Straight was able to seize the moral high ground in the culture wars and turn civil disobedience into an art form. Along with a sense of history, there's a strongly ingrained emotional component to these old Straight covers: they've lost none of their power to evoke an impassioned response. Some are beautiful, some are funny, some will shock and some will enrage. But they'll all make you feel something."--

Oh my God by Peter Rodger( Visual )

5 editions published between 2008 and 2010 in English and held by 52 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"What is God? In every corner of the world, there's one question that can never be definitively answered, yet stirs up equal parts passion, curiosity, self-reflection, and often wild imagination: "What is God?" Filmmaker Peter Rodger explores this profound, age-old query in the provocative nonfiction film Oh my God. Frustrated with religious turmoil, fanaticism, and fundamentalism, he set out on a global quest to understand what God really means to people from many walks of life. The result is a stunningly beautiful film featuring inviting faces and personalities who are a touching reminder of the melting pot that we call humanity-- and the mystery that we have given many names"--Container
