Guildford: Genesis Publications, 2006. [Rock & Roll] SIGNED LIMITED 'STARSHIP' EDITION. Folio (total dimensions 52 x 34 x 11cm), pp.416. Containing 620 images. Number 46 of 350 copies thus, from a total limitation of 2500, SIGNED by Sykes and Rudge to limitation page. Full black leather with embroidered eagle patch and silkscreened page edging. The handmade solander box features a silkscreen image of the 'Starship' and silver foil blocking. Lenticular images of the Stones appear in the aircraft's cut away windows. The tour 'Access Backstage' silk armband serves as a pull ribbon. Also including Starship booklet, keys and passes, and a signed numbered print of Mick Jagger. A fine, as-new copy, unread in the original card mailer. Mailer shows a couple of significant bumps. In his role as the tour's official diarist, no area was off-limit for Christopher Simon Sykes. The result is a massive and absorbing 27,000 word narrative to accompany his many hundreds of photographs. Running throughout the book there are also tour schedules, set lists, budgets, daily newsletters from tour manager Peter 'Commander' Rudge, personnel lists, sight-seeing tickets, night club passes, Rolling Stone magazine articles, letters home and postcards - the perfect accompaniment to the diary's words and photographs. An enormous archive of largely unseen photographs, a wonderfully descriptive diary and a collection of every piece of tour memorabilia imaginable – including backstage passes and even hotel room keys.
