Mick Jagger recently said that the Rolling Stones have “lots of special things planned” to celebrate the band’s 50th anniversary.

One of them will be a 352-page hardcover photo book, scheduled for a British release on July 12 — 50 years to the day after the Stones played their first-ever gig.

Curated by the band, ‘The Rolling Stones: 50′ will be published by Thames & Hudson. It features more than 700 images of the Stones throughout their history, including very early black-and-white shots taken by famed photographer Philip Townsend long before the Stones earned the tag of “the greatest rock ‘n’ roll band in the world.”

In a joint statement, Jagger, Keith Richards, Charlie Watts and Ron Wood said:

“This is our story of 50 fantastic years. We started out as a blues band playing the clubs, and more recently we’ve filled the largest stadiums in the world with the kind of show that none of us could have imagined all those years ago.”

The retail price for the book is $48; an American release date has yet to be announced.
