About the image
This set of photographs comprise the front and back covers of the Rolling Stones Let It Bleed album cover from 1969.

The album cover design was based on the working title of the album at the time, “Automatic Changer” which was a new feature on some record players.  Brownjohn built the sculpture seen on the front cover photograph which was comprised of: an old gramophone stylus/arm, a record, a dinner plate, a film reel canister, a clock face, a pizza, a bicycle tire and a specialty cake with miniature figurines of the band as toppers.  All these items were mounted on an extra long spindle as though they were the records on the changer.  The back cover was this same sculpture photographed in disarray, as though it were showing the aftermath of a great party.

These one-of-a-kind photographs are available as part of a set that includes Brownjohn's initial sketches for the design, along with the original transparencies.  Each photograph measures 20" x 20" .
