Signed by David Bailey to the limitation page of the book. The iconic photographic print of Mick Jagger, one of Bailey's closest friends is also signed by the photographer to the lower margin. It's no exaggeration to say that the pair were among the coolest people in 1960s London. Their personal bond helped create one of the most famous portraits of the post-war period, this image featured in and on the upper cover of Bailey's 1965 Box Of Pin-Ups. The entire printing of this monumental photobook is limited to 3300 copies comprising four Art Editions of 75 copies which include an original print, and 3000 regular copies without the print. This Mick Jagger issue of Art Edition sold out on publication. The three other Art Editions include a print of John Lennon and Paul McCartney, Jean Shrimpton or Andy Warhol.
