It's Only Rock'n Roll
Genesis Publications are famous for producing limited edition high quality books with rare and unique paintings, photos related to rock artists, including The Rolling Stones. One of their recent releases is the now sold out book Crossfire Hurricane - Photos by Bob Gruen. This time they have in production a new and even more limited book - I-CONTACT - The Complete Black-and-white Rolling Stones Archives of Gered Mankowitz.
It is not every day that a celebrated photographer lets you reproduce his complete archive in one volume. But that is exactly what Gered Mankowitz has allowed, with the promise that the publisher Genesis restrict the edition to only 950 copies worldwide.
There are 3,000 Rolling Stones images reproduced as enlarged 35mm contact sheets or same-size 2 1/4 inch square frames in this massive A3 torne. Eighteen full-page images also accompany Gered's text.
The final copies of Gered's last book Mason's Yard to Primrose Hill, now completely sold out, were sold at five times regular price, and are now hard to get at a reasonable cost. On this basis, demand for I-Contact is going to be very high indeed. Make sure you order this book now in order to secure your copy.
The total of 950 copies of this book are spiral bound in heavy printed boards, with specially-produced linen tester magnifying glass, housed in a solander box. Autographed by Gered Mankowitz. Size 297 mm x 420 mm. Price GB pounds 165 plus GB pounds 10 shipping, or US $280 plus US $17 shipping. ISBN 0 904351 61 0.
Copies numbered 1 to 100 from the edition are Deluxe copies special bound with full leather boards, with a signed print direct from the negative. The Deluxe edition is priced at GB pounds 295 or US $495, including postage.
