The next Rolling Stones project will cost you a lot more than the average concert ticket.
A boxed, collector's edition of "The Rolling Stones," a coffee table book featuring hundreds of famous and little-known photographs, will be released in December.
The publisher Taschen announced Monday that band members Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Ron Wood and Charlie Watts signed each of the available 1,150 copies. The asking price: $5,000. The regular edition, unsigned and slightly smaller in dimension, has a list price of $150.
In a statement issued through Taschen, Jagger said the book captures "many magical moments," while Richards called it a "roller coaster" through the band's 50 year history. The publisher says its 500-page plus book offers "unprecedented access to the Rolling Stones’ own archives in New York and London adds an equally extraordinary, more private side to their story."
The Stones are currently on tour Down Under, playing dates that were initially rescheduled when Jagger’s partner L'Wren Scott died earlier this year.
