A photographic document of the band backstage, in performance and at the studio, during the classic period 1965-1968, with a fully participant Brian Jones, taken by Mankowitz, successor to David Bailey (who shot the covers of the Stones first two LPs). This unique edition forms the cornerstone of any serious Rolling Stones library. In allowing publication of his complete archive, Mankowitz requested that the number of copies in the edition be kept to an absolute minimum in order to preserve the exclusivity of his historic images. Therefore, the edition is strictly limited to only 950 numbered copies worldwide, of which the first 100 were deluxe issues (as the present copy). Fully subscribed, this is a Genesis 'Hall of Fame' title. Item #46602
