    Description

    Rolling Stones "Some Girls" Album Cover Production Art and Related Material (Rolling Stones Records/Atlantic, 1978). The Stones' biggest album to date featured a most unusual, die-cut cover. As designed by artist Peter Corriston (who also designed the cover for Led Zeppelin's Physical Graffiti), the cover was conceived as a take-off on trashy 1950s "specialty" ads for women's wigs and bras. The die-cut holes originally opened to reveal faces of the Stones in the wigs, alongside some very well-known personalities, several who responded with threats of legal action. This incredible group lot consists of several early pencil sketches, position stats of the faces for both sides of the inner sleeve, revised production art, color keys, negatives and mock-ups of the Shattered 45 single sleeve, a glossy black and white publicity photo of the band, three color prints of Mick Jagger in concert; and a number of letters, memos, telegrams, and promo items relating to the album and photos. This is a real treasure-trove of rare memorabilia for any Rolling Stones fan!
