Art book publisher TASCHEN have launched highly-anticipated Rolling Stones SUMO-Size Collectors’ Edition Hardcover Book. Produced in collaboration with the band, this SUMO sized monograph is the “definitive, authorized, illustrated history of the world’s greatest rock ‘n’ roll band. Issued in limited run of 1,150 copies, the book is signed by all band members: Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Ronnie Wood and Charlie Watts.
Worth it for the pure wow-factor, 518 page edition includes a foreword penned by former US President Bill Clinton as well as a seam-busting appendix documenting the Stones in the media, an in-depth time-line and full discography.
Mick Jagger notes, “We were lucky enough to work with some of the greatest photographers in the world who captured many magical moments of our career. This volume brings together some incredible pictures spanning the past fifty years.”
While Keith Richards adds, “This book isn’t just rock ‘n’ roll, it’s a roller coaster through fifty years of memory lane!”
Priced at £3,500 ($5,300), SUMO size hardcover comes in clamshell box, 50 x 50 cm (20 x 20 in.), with 3 fold-outs and silkscreen printed chapter openers.
