The Rolling Stones have announced a new photo book, The Rolling Stones: 50, that will hit stores on July 12th, the 50th anniversary of the band's first gig. The book, which will be published by Thames & Hudson in the United Kingdom, includes 700 photos and illustrations, many of which were taken from the Daily Mirror's archive, which contains the largest newspaper collection of Rolling Stones images.
"This is our story of 50 fantastic years," the band said in a statement. "Curated by us, [the book] features the very best photographs and ephemera from and beyond our archives." The book will also feature comments and writing from members of the band.
