You Can’t Always Get What You Want

Culture Watch

The Rolling Stones are so much more than a band. Every fan worth their weight in records will tell you that. So when you imagine what a coffee table book dedicated to these rock n’ roll gods would look like, nothing short of spectacular would do.

The Limited Edition "The Rolling Stones" book from Taschen comes in a collectible clamshell box.

The Limited Collector's Edition of “Rolling Stones” is a run of 1,150 numbered copies signed by Mick, Keith, Charlie, and Ronnie. Packed with more than 500 pages of images from some of the world’s greatest photographers, including David Bailey, Peter Beard, Cecil Beaton, Bob Bonis, Anton Corbijn, Annie Leibovitz, Gered Mankowitz, Helmut Newton, Norman Parkinson, Bent Rej and Ethan Russel, the book starts off with a foreword by President Bill Clinton. And it only gets better from there!

The kind of fame and success The Rolling Stones have achieved in their 50-years and counting career is without parallel; their most famous riffs and catchiest lyrics are indelibly engraved in our collective memory. With their bluesy rock ‘n’ roll and mesmerizing off and onstage presence, the Stones redefined the music of the 1960s and 1970s and paved the way for rock as we know it today. They also set the standard for how a rock band should look and behave.

Produced in close collaboration with the band, this book charts the Stones’ remarkable history and outrageously cool lifestyle through many unseen photographs and illustrations, gathered from archives all over the world. Unprecedented access to the Rolling Stones’ own archives in New York and London adds an equally extraordinary, more private side to their story.

For Mick, Keith, Charlie and Ronnie this is their official photographic record. Additional features include three new essays from award-winning writers David Dalton, Waldemar Januszczak, and Luc Sante, as well as an appendix including Stones in the media, a Stones timeline, a discography and photographers’ biographies. The book is also available in six Art Editions, each limited to 75 copies, which are accompanied by a photographic print.
