For over five decades, the Rolling Stones have continually reinvented themselves as musicians, performers and cultural icons, transforming music, art, fashion and popular culture in the process. This incredible legacy is explored in Exhibitionism – The Rolling Stones, the major exhibition that recently opened at London’s Saatchi Gallery. Pentagram’s Abbott Miller and William Russell have collaborated on the design of the exhibition, which is produced, originated and conceptualised by Tony Cochrane and Thea Jeanes-Cochrane of IEC Exhibitions and curated by Ileen Gallagher. As part of the project, Miller and his team have also designed Exhibitionism – The Rolling Stones, the book that accompanies the show.
The book’s primary typography is in Berton Hasebe’s Druk “which is [also] used in the exhibition graphics and helps create a context for the band’s late 1960s origins.” The body copy appears to be set in Henrik Kubel’s A2 Typewriter.
