Unpacking the boxes from Rolling Stone Magazine

Today the gallery staff began unpacking the boxes of magazines from Rolling Stone for our next exhibition - Rolling Stone : The Covers 1972 - 2010. Here is a sneak peak as they unpack the wonderful covers and delve into popular culture of the past :

Artistic early covers featuring screen prints and hand drawn illustrations.

And that was only the start! Another peek into the room after lunch and Rolling Stone magazines are now covering every single centimetre table surface and most of the floor...

Like what you see? Want a closer look? Come along to the show! The exhibition opens here at artisan on the 2nd September 2010 from 6pm - 8pm and will be on display until 2nd October.
