Publishers Taschen have announced the new deluxe, coffee table book ‘The Rolling Stones,’ which charts the band’s remarkable history in over 500 pages of photographs and illustrations. Created with unprecedented access to the band’s own archives in New York and London, a limited, numbered edition of 1,150 copies will be available signed by Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Charlie Watts and Ronnie Wood.

The book includes images by such world-famous photographers as David Bailey, Cecil Beaton, Annie Leibovitz, Gered Mankovitz, Helmut Newton, Norman Parkinson and many more, and has a foreword written by President Bill Clinton. There are also three new essays written by David Dalton, Waldemar Januszczak, and Luc Sante. An appendix includes sections on the Stones in the media, a band timeline, a discography, and photographers’ biographies.

“This volume brings together some incredible pictures spanning the last 50 years,” says Mick Jagger, while Keith Richards adds: “This book isn’t just rock ‘n’ roll, it’s a roller coaster through 50 years of memory lane!”

The ‘SUMO’ size hardcover edition signed by each of the band will retail for $5000 and comes in a clamshell box with fold-outs and silkscreen printed chapter openers. Unsigned copies, smaller in dimension, are priced at $150.

There will be six art editions available, each limited to 75 copies and each with a photographic print. The book is edited by Reuel Golden, who has edited many previous volumes for Taschen including one on the Beatles and is the former editor of the British Journal of Photography.
