"The Stranger," Billy Joel's fifth studio album and first to hit the top 10, catapulted the artist into the upper ranks of pop music superstardom. "The Stranger" won two Grammys, Record of the Year and Song of the Year for "Just the Way You Are."
Photographer Jim Haughton's iconic cover portrait of Billy Joel is both complex and rich with symbolism. "We all have a face that we hide away forever and we take them out and show ourselves when everyone is gone," sings Billy Joel on the album's title track. Here, like frames from a film, is a 20"x24" contact sheet of 12 images from the cover shoot. You will notice the marking on frame 156 that was Billy Joel's choice for the cover itself.
Our hand-signed Billy Joel series of limited-edition prints just got more limited!
There are only 25 platinum prints made with Billy's original hand-signature. The initial price was $5,000.00, framing is additional and optional.
