For their 9th studio album, Sticky Fingers, The Rolling Stones asked Andy Warhol to design what would become one of the most popular album covers of all time. The sleeve featured a shot of Joe Dallesandro’s crotch, with workable zip, and for the first time showcased the band’s tongue and lips logo, as designed by John Pasche. Below is a letter from Jagger to Warhol, in which he politely warns the artist of production difficulties associated with complex sleeve designs. Warhol of cause did not care and produced a cover which caused all manner of problems.
