Signed, in deluxe full leather

Signed limited edition, number 29 of 2,500 copies signed by the photographer Christopher Simon Sykes and the Rolling Stones tour manager Peter Rudge; this is one of 350 deluxe copies bound in full leather (the rest of the edition bound in quarter leather), with an additional photographic print of Mick Jagger signed by Sykes and a facsimile of the "Starship" 12-page promotional booklet describing the features of the Boeing 707-22 aircraft commissioned for the tour. In 1975, the Rolling Stones brought in their trusted friend and confidante Christopher Sykes to document in its entirety their mammoth 40-show Tour Of The Americas. The vast archive of photographs Sykes took on the tour - most of which were before seen - are here reproduced in this lavish edition.
