THE BEATLES ILLUSTRATED LYRICS were first published in two separate volumes in 1969 and 1971. Artist Alan Aldridge's aim was to capture the essence of the Beatles' appeal and to present a book which was as entertaining to the eye and the imagination as their music is to the ear. He succeeded and the result was a stunning collection of colour illustrations by some of the most famous artists of the time. Surreal and psychedelic, the lyrics and illustrations reflect the mood of the 60s, and show what an immense influence the greatest band of all time had on the style of their generation and those that followed. This new collector's hardback edition retains all the style of the original and is a must for any Beatles' fan or anyone interested in design or the social history of the 60s. Contributors include Clive Arrowsmith, David Bailey, Mel Calman, David Hockney, Ronald Searle, Peter Max, Ralph Steadman and many more...

Example of Boundless Imagination
Every die hard Beatles fan needs to have this book in their collection. It is a brilliant collaboration of art and music. Both professional artists and amatuers unite to illustrate the songs of a band that was a cultural phenomenon. Yes, there is nudity in this book, but looking past that you will see the beauty of boundless creativity. Psychadelic is the appropriate word for this book. It is amazing and you will have an enjoyable time screaming your favorite lyrics throughout your home or on a street corner. A MUST HAVE!
