Blinds & Shutters by Michael Cooper. Compiled by Brian Roylance. Numerous contributors. Genesis/Hedley, Surrey, UK, 1990. 368 pp. Thick folio. 2900 in an edition of 5000. SIGNED on a tipped in sheet by ten contributors: Pop artist Peter Blake, Terry Doran, Gerard Malanga, Allen Ginsberg, Al Cooper, Taj Mahal, Nicholas Monro, Larry Rivers, Colin Self and Bill Wyman (each copy was signed by the Rolling Stones' Bill Wyman--who was the originator of the project--and at least nine other contributors). Housed in matching hand-made silk screened Solander box, with a small inset photograph behind a sliding panel on the front of the lid. Decorative boards with debossed design. Numerous black-and-white and color photographs.
A sprawling illustrated oral history of rock-and-roll and its context in the sixties centering mostly on the Beatles and Rolling Stones, but also casting a much wider net.
Bit of scuffing to case and boards; otherwise Fine.
