Not Fade Away Gallery announced the release, for the first time ever, of previously-unpublished, gallery-quality limited editions of 100 rare, vintage, unguarded, intimate, and iconic images of The Beatles and The Rolling Stones from the Bob Bonis Photographic Archive, 1964-1966, which are now available in limited quantity only on Amazon at http://www.amazon.com/notfadeawaygallery.
This release, by NFA Gallery, breaks the mold of the traditional fine-art collector market by offering investment-quality prints at introductory prices making them more affordable to a wider spectrum of collectors and fan. Due to the small edition sizes, prints are expected to sell briskly and will increase in price and value as the editions sell down.
The Bob Bonis Archive is considered one of the most important photographic collections to have ever been discovered. Bonis had the incredible good fortune to serve as US Tour Manager for both The Beatles and The Rolling Stones from 1964 through 1966, beginning with both bands’ first tours of America. The images are unguarded, personal, powerful and often iconic, showing The Beatles and The Rolling Stones not only on stage, but also behind the scenes, backstage, in the recording studio, at TV and film appearances, rehearsing, at play and on the road. They document the two most important bands in rock history at the most important period in their careers – coming to and conquering America, heralding the ‘British Invasion’.
Each archival 16” x 20” print is hand-numbered, bears the embossed official Bob Bonis Archive / Not Fade Away Gallery seal, and comes with a matching numbered Certificate of Authenticity. Each photo, derived from the original negative or slide, is produced by the master printers at Duggal Visual Solutions in NYC, one of the world’s leading printers of fine art photographs for museums, galleries and photographers.
