rolling_stones_sumo-book-taschen

To call the Rolling Stones a band who made an impact on global pop culture would be an understatement if there if ever there were one. With their own personal history spanning literally more than half a century, these key figures in the history of rock ‘n roll specifically played a huge part in the crucial music period of the ’60’s and ’70’s, and went on to withstand the years in a way that only few bands ever have. It is thus no wonder that Taschen is set to release The Rolling Stones, a book that is not only dedicated to the band but was created collaboratively with its members, with many of the images coming from the private, otherwise completely inaccessible archives of the Stones themselves. The Rolling Stones, compiled by frequent Tashcen-editor Reuel Golden, contains such impressive contributions as photography from some of the world’s greats like David Bailey, Peter Beard and Annie Liebovitz, and also a forward by former President Bill Clinton and essay contributions from award-winning writers such as David Dalton, Waldemar Januszczak and Luc Sante. A true collector’s piece, this 518-page edition with photo-foldouts, silkscreen chapter headers and a clamhsell case, is limited to only 1,600 copies, each signed by Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Charlie Watt and Ronnie Wood. Order your copy now for $5,000 (or one of only 450 art copies at $10,000) and receive in time for Christmas.

john-baldessari-celebrity-selfies-visionaire-art-book

Visionaire magazine, always on the cutting edge of creative collaborations, has commissioned artist John Baldessari to lay his handiwork on their latest issue, Visionaire 64 ART. The idea is to take celebrity’s “selfies” and transform them from simple works of self absorption into concept art. Baldessari has taken high quality archival printed black and white photos of said celebs and laid his conceptual, color-blocking artwork on them, transforming them into something utterly new. The celebrities who submitted images run the gamut across the artistic and non-artistic world, including Kate Upton, Miley Cyrus, Drake, James Franco, Kirsten Dunst and many more. Each issue of Visionaire 64 ART will have 10 different pieces of art divided into colored sections (Red, Green and Blue), and will be limited to only 500 copies. If you want in, get a copy for $325.

adidas-originals-by-jeremy-scott-js-wings-3-0-1

To celebrate 10 years of healthy and spirited collaboration, Jeremy Scott has lifted the veil off his latest sneaker for the adidas Originals line. Logical he’d select the iconic and polarizing JS Wings silhouette to mark their decade anniversary. The high-tops get updated with angular molded 3D leather wings jutting from the upper like a Batman cape, and are also outfitted with a removable inner sock made of neoprene and patent leather on the toe. Dubbed the JS Wings 3.0, as this is the third iteration of the sneaker, for now the shoe only comes in black and will be made available on Halloween with the rest of the apparel line.

A documentary about the birth of punk in the nation's capitol

salad-days

Having already shown segments at the CBGB Festival in New York this month, Salad Days documents an era and location that was pivotal to not only punk rock, but to the indie movement of do-it-yourself record labels itself. Washington DC-raised director Scott Crawford and DC DP Jim Saah deliver the story of the capitol’s pivotal and hugely seminal punk bands such as Bad Brains, Minor Threat and Fugazi, in a project so readily received that it hit its Kickstarter goal in six days. Other perks include interviews with Henry Rollins and Thurston Moore. While much fuss has been made of the pre-Nirvana age of music, The Salad Days: Decade of Punk In Washington, DC  (1980-90) documentary sets it self apart being the first to really focus on the importance of Washington D.C. to punk-rock history.
