16" x 20" print (the image size is 12" x 18" plus a white border) in a hand-numbered edition of only 75 prints. ONCE AN EDITION SELLS OUT IT WILL NEVER BE REPRINTED!

In a wonderfully meta moment, Keith Richards relaxes at a luncheon that was thrown by West German newspaper Bild Zeitung to make up for a mistake in an article that caused the Stones to threaten to cancel the rest of the tour. The caption on a photo had misidentified Bill Wyman's girlfriend as Chrissie Shrimpton (the younger sister of model Jean Shrimpton), who was Mick Jagger's girlfriend which caused manager Andrew Loog Oldham to force the paper to print a retraction. Bob Bonis accompanied the Stones on their brief, five-city tour of West Germany - and the tour was a riot-filled affair. Former Stones bassist Bill Wyman recalls "police dogs everywhere" and crowds "estimated at between 21,000 and 23,000." In this photo, behind Keith is a wall plastered with German Rolling Stones posters, sponsored by Bild Zeitung's publication BRAVO. After rioting broke out at the West Berlin show on September 15, the East and West German press reprinted descriptions from Bild Zeitung of girls throwing off their underwear in ecstasy - in an effort to censor American and British influences, just as they had done with Elvis Presley in 1956.

This photograph was taken by Bob Bonis, who was the U.S. Tour Manager for both The Beatles and the Rolling Stones from 1964 through 1966. This is a Limited Edition fine art photograph, derived from the original negative or slide, and is printed on professional grade Fujicolor Crystal Archive paper by the master printers at Duggal Visual Solutions in New York. Thanks to his unequaled access and gifted eye for composition, Bob Bonis captured thousands of unguarded, candid and iconic photographs of the two most important groups in the history of popular music. The majority of these images have never been seen or published and most are available here as Limited Edition fine art prints for the FIRST TIME!

These fine art photographs are custom printed to order and require a high level of expertise and intense attention to detail, all delivered by Duggal Visual Solutions in New York City. As these are not "off-the-shelf" items an order may take up to 10 business days to print and ship. Once printed each photograph is inspected to ensure a perfect print it is then hand-numbered and is embossed with the official Bob Bonis signature seal, as authorized by The Bob Bonis Estate. It is then placed in a rigid acid-free acrylic sleeve to protect it from fingerprints and other damage

Each photograph is accompanied by a package that contains the following documents:

  • A hand-numbered and signed Certificate of Authenticity from The GRAMMY Museum attesting to the fact that each print is derived from the original negative or slide, and stating the size and print number you have purchased
  • A Congratulations letter from The Bob Bonis Archive
  • The story of The Bob Bonis Archive
  • The backstory of your specific photograph or event information
  • Suggestions on framing your Bob Bonis Photograph

Watermarks: The Bob Bonis Archive logo that appears on the lower right corner of the photos pictured above is only a watermark and WILL NOT APPEAR on the actual print you receive.

What Your Actual Prints Will Look Like: Your actual prints are custom printed on either 11" x 14", 16" x 20" or 20" x 24" professional grade Fujicolor Crystal Archive Paper, depending on which size photograph you purchase. Each print has the image centered on the paper, with a white border, and is hand-numbered with your specific print number and the edition size directly below the image on the left bottom side as shown in the examples below. The official Bob Bonis Signature Seal is embossed in the lower right-hand corner of the paper.
