Music History

Gift Idea: A New Rolling Stones Picture Book. The Bad News? It Costs $10,000.

The Stones are one of the most-photographed bands of all time, attracting some of the best photographers in the world. Ethan Russell. Jim Marshall. Anton Corbijn. Annie Leibovitz

There’s now a 518-page collection of the best of those shots taken from about 1965 to 1992. And as with all things Stones, it ain’t cheap.


The “basic” version of the book runs $150 USD while limited editions go for $5,000 (“sumo-sized” with foldouts and silk-screened printed chapter folder) and $10,000 (six “Art Editions,”limited to just 75 copies) The publisher is Taschen, no strangers to high-end photo books.
