Rumors are still flying about how the Rolling Stones will celebrate their 50th anniversary. Fans had hoped that Mick Jagger would tell the world when he hosted 'Saturday Night Live' last month, yet no announcement came. Still, Ronnie Wood insists a tour is coming this fall, but he's been wrong before.

However, we can guarantee that a book, 'The Rolling Stones: 50' will be released. This is definite because we have proof in the form of a video, which shows the books being produced in Shenzhen, China and arriving at their publisher's office in London. The video features tantalizing images of what would promises to be something that any Stones fan would cherish.

The 352-page hardcover book features more than 700 images of the history of the  Stones, and will be available on July 12, 50 years to the day of the band's first gig at the Marquee Club in London. The band released the following statement about the book.

This is our story of fifty 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. Curated by us, it features the very best photographs and ephemera from and beyond our archives.
