For musicians and entertainers, there is no more desirable showcase than the Rolling Stone cover, where every other week for the past thirty years a talented photographer, illustrator or designer has been given the opportunity to create a new legend or give a fresh spin to a familiar face. Taken together, that is more than seven hundred covers chronicling rock and roll, the cutting edge in pop culture and the hipper reaches of film and television. With an introduction by Rolling Stone founding editor and publisher Jann S. Wenner and the work of such renowned photographers as Annie Leibovitz, Richard Avedon, Herb Ritts, Matthew Rolston, Albert Watson, Mark Seliger and Anton Corbijn, as well as cover story excerpts and tantalizing behind-the-scenes anecdotes, readers of the magazine both past and present will find Rolling Stone: The Complete Covers 1967-1997 to be an intriguing and evocative journey.
