Christie's Rock and Pop Memorabilia
Over the last 20 years, rock and pop memorabilia has moved out of the junk shops and into the auction houses. The most exclusive items associated with legends like the Beatles, the Rolling Stones, Elvis Presley, and Jimi Hendrix have begun to attract the same prices as the paintings of the old masters. Christie's Rock & Pop Memorabilia offers the first comprehensive survey of this worldwide market. Included is everything from autographs, letters, manuscripts, posters, artwork, and guitars to mass-produced artifacts that were aimed at teenage pop fans in the 1950s and 1960s and that today are scarce and valuable collector's items. Represented in over 120 fabulous photographs are such collectibles as Eric Clapton's prized Fender Stratocaster, Elvis Presley's love letters, Elton John's outrageous outfits, and Madonna's famous black bustier.
