Beatles – Stones – Warhol, Clapton Signed Blinds & Shutters
A beautiful copy of "Blinds & Shutters," the limited edition deluxe book of photographs published by Genesis; this copy signed by Andy Warhol, Eric Clapton, Bill Wyman, and 7 others. This 1990 book chronicles the work of the late Michael Cooper, the legendary photographer who so well documented the 60's British rock scene. Best known for shooting the Beatles "Sgt. Peppers" and Stones "Satanic Majesties" album covers, Cooper was very close to both bands. This large (10.5" x 15.5" x 2.25") book chronicles the 60's London as no other has, with many beautiful photographs of The Beatles, Stones, Bob Dylan, Andy Warhol, and many other leading lights of the music and arts scene (there are more photos of the Beatles and Stones than anyone else, including many of the "Sgt. Peppers" photo session.) This was published in an edition of 5000 numbered copies, each signed by 10 of the contributors. This copy, #599, has the signatures of Andy Warhol, Eric Clapton, Bill Wyman, Sgt. Peppers' artist Peter Blake, John Dunbar of International Times and the Indica bookstore, famous artists Allen Jones, Billy Al Bengston, Craig Kauffman, and Ann Marshall, and Michael Cooper's son Adam Cooper. Overall, 93 of the books subjects or essayists signed various copies of the book's signature page, in combinations of 10. Andy Warhol signed very few (he died 3 years before the book was published,) and those bearing his signature are extremely desirable. This copy has not only Warhol, but Eric Clapton (another infrequent signer), Peter Blake, and a great complement of well known visual artists. The book is hand bound in leather, with a deluxe clamshell box. The "window" in the box opens to reveal an original photographic print of Michael Cooper's son Adam. In Near Mint condition. This extraordinary book needs to be seen to be believed. The only other copy we've seen with Warhol's signature was offered for $2500. Email us for other photos from this beauty.
