The Rolling Stones are an outsized band in rock history. From hits like “Paint It Black” to astronomical ticket prices for their seemingly never-ending tours, everything that the Stones does is larger than life. So it only makes sense that their achievements are memorialized in an equally large (and expensive) book.
Taschen just released The Rolling Stones, a 518-page “Sumo” sized book that chronicles the history of Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Charlie Watts, Ronnie Wood, et al. The tome features photographs, many previously unpublished, from Peter Beard, Annie Leibovitz, Helmut Newton, and Anton Corbijn among others and a forward written by former president Bill Clinton.
The book costs $5,000 and is available in a limited edition of 1,150 copies that are individually numbered and signed by the members of the Stones. The Rolling Stones is available here.
