To coincide with their 50th anniversary, The Rolling Stones will release a book of photographs chronicling their rise to fame, according to CBS News. Aptly titled The Rolling Stones: 50, the 352-page hardback edition will feature 700 pictures taken mostly from The Daily Mirror’s archive, which holds the largest newspaper collection of The Rolling Stones photography.

In a joint statement, the band said, “This is our story of 50 fantastic years. Curated by us, it features the very best photographs and ephemera from and beyond our archives.”

The Rolling Stones: 50 will be released in the UK on July 12th, 50 years to the day of the band’s on-stage debut at the Marquee Club in London. It will then be released in North America in the fall.
