Some of the most important and memorable magazine covers from the last 50 years have graced Rolling Stone magazine. Music stars are the most frequent, but the magazine has uh, covered many other public personalities as well, including everyone “from John Lennon, Bob Dylan, the Rolling Stones, Madonna, and Steve Martin to Rihanna, Louis C.K., Adele, Radiohead, and Barack Obama.” And now they’re all in one book coming in April, entitled Rolling Stone 50 Years of Covers: A History of the Most Influential Magazine in Pop Culture.
The odd choice of including Louis CK in your promotional copy aside, Rolling Stone 50 Years of Covers is a freshly updated collection of the magazine’s often classic covers:
“This fantastic collection is newly revised and updated to include the covers from all 50 years of Rolling Stone history. With an updated introduction by Jann S. Wenner as well as new excerpts from the magazine and quotes from photographers and their celebrity subjects, this nostalgic journey down the memory lane of music, entertainment, and politics is irresistible.”
Rolling Stone 50 Years of Covers: A History of the Most Influential Magazine in Pop Culture comes out on April 24th, but you can pre-order a copy for a little over 25 bucks right here.
