Genesis Publications have produced a great new and exclusive photo book, this time presenting photos by Bob Gruen. The title is: Crossfire Hurricane - 25 Years of Rolling Stones Photographs by Bob Gruen.
The book is hand crafted, autographed, and numbered in a limited series of 1750 copies. Once they are gone, they are gone. There are photos spanning 25 years of Stones history, from the American tour in 1972, all the way up to and including the press conference under the Brooklyn Bridge on Aug. 18, 1997. This is a unique collection of over 350 great photos, from Stones tours, and rare events, solo projects, and Stones with John Lennon, Bob Dylan and Chuck Berry. The book totals 128 pages. Plus late extra addition: The book just got 8 additional pages from the tour start in Chicago, and was delayed until mid-November. This seems to be the perfect Xmas gift, if you can afford it!
Genesis Publications is known from their hight quality, limited edition art books, with superior paper and printing quality. They have done some on the Beatles, and a couple related to the Stones: First the huge box called Blinds & Shutters by Michael Cooper, including sigatures and unique photos (priced about GBP 350 = USD 500). Then they produced the book From Mason's Yard To Primrose Hill, with photos by Gered Mankowitz (priced at about GBP 90 = USD 135). These days these books are hard to get, and trade at much higher prices.
