The Beatles, Rolling Stones – Limited Edition “Blinds & Shutters” Signed Photography Book (Signed by Keith Richards, Eric Clapton & 9 More.)
A beautiful copy of Blinds & Shutters, the limited edition deluxe book of Michael Cooper’s photographs published by Genesis; this copy signed by Eric Clapton, Keith Richards, Bill Wyman, Sgt. Peppers cover artist Peter Blake 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. Pepper’s 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 60’s London as no other has, with many beautiful photographs of The Beatles, Stones, Bob Dylan, Andy Warhol and other leading lights of the music and arts scene (there are more photographs of the Beatles and Stones than anyone else, including many of the “Sgt. Peppers” photo session.)
This was published in a limited edition of 5000 numbered copies, each signed by 10 contributors. This copy, #1782, has the signatures of Eric Clapton, Keith Richards, Bill Wyman, Beatles publicist Derek Taylor, Beatles associate/Apple Records executive Terry Doran, legendary English Pop Artist Peter Blake (who designed the album cover for Sgt. Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band,) British Pop Artists Colin Self and Allen Jones, Rolling Stones friends/associates Christopher Gibbs and Stash Klossowski 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. This is a particularly good set of signatures, including two Rolling Stones, Eric Clapton and Peter Blake. The book is hand bound in leather, with a deluxe hardbound box. The “window” in the box opens to reveal an original photographic print. The book is in mint condition; the top of the box is in near mint condition. This extraordinary book needs to be seen to be believed.
