“I started collecting these personal pieces because I felt they belonged back in our family. This collection represents something of great importance to me, as it is part of our history.” — Julian Lennon
Over the years, Julian Lennon — John's oldest son — has built a unique collection of Beatles memorabilia, including several gold records, cells from the film Yellow Submarine, guitars, clothing (such as John's Afghan coat from Magical Mystery Tour), jewelry, autographed books, handwritten lyrics, posters, and postcards. Now, for the first time, more than 100 of these personal treasures are displayed in print. Julian, working with well-known music author Brian Southall, provides insight into every one of these beloved pieces and explains what they mean to him — and the family memories they evoke.
