Blinds & Shutters: Special Anniversary Release

30 Apr 2019

30 years since the first copies were published, and to celebrate 45 years of publishing, we're releasing the final copies of our most famous book, Blinds & Shutters.

Offering a unique view into the Sixties, this edition is comprised of over 600 photographs captured by photographer Michael Cooper. His era-defining photos are complemented with a 30,000-word manuscript from 93 legendary contributors - from musicians such as Eric Clapton and George Harrison, to artists Andy Warhol and David Hockney, to writers William Burroughs and Allen Ginsberg and with forewords by Mick Jagger and Keith Richards.

"The most stupendous rock and roll picture book ever assembled" - USA Today​

Presented in a special anniversary binding, the final 600 books are offered in a choice of six different signature copies, with each signed by at least nine of the contributors.

"A Fifties hipster who slipped through the Sixties. I miss Michael and his particular charm. Enjoy his work" - Keith Richards
