Taken between 1967 and the present, these 150 pictures by 35 photographers are reprinted from Rolling Stone . Encompassing a variety of styles (from the dark and murky likeness of a contemplative Tom Waits photographed in black-and-white by Matt Mahurin, to a luridly high-colored portrait of jewel-bedecked, ermine-coated Liberace and his baby-blue clad chauffeur by Annie Leibovitz) the photos are mainly of rock and film celebrities. The first-class design and production of this lavish volume enhance already high-quality pictures, and help make the many familiar shots seen here look fresh and vital. In a short preface Wolfe recalls a 1966 Janis Joplin concert and describes how the masques of celebrity changed--in the late '60s--from poses of wealth and elegance to snarls of raw, energetic youth. Rolling Stone publisher Wenner in his introduction writes of the stylistic evolution of the magazine and reminisces about prominent photographers he has worked with. Kratochvil is Rolling Stone 's photo editor. $250,000 ad/promo; first serial to Rolling Stone and US magazines; Literary Guild a lternate.
