A selection of more than 300 images from the photo archive of The Beatles Book Monthly, previously unpublished or unseen in their original form
With each new issue, Beatles fans worldwide would voraciously devour the contents from cover-to-cover, discovering the Fab Four’s latest news and activities and most of all, savouring the exclusive B&W photographs, captured by in-house photographer, Leslie Bryce. During the magazine’s six-year run only a small fraction of these photographs were printed – and then often altered in some way.
The Beatles Book captured the Beatles’ development from British provincial theatres – through foreign tours including their ground-breaking first American visit - and onwards to the band’s withdrawal into the recording studio. It was unique in its access – as well as concert tours and television shows, the band were photographed off duty, at their homes and in the studio – locales that were generally out-of-bounds to most Beatle observers.
This unique and original photographic record preserves many important moments within the Beatles’ career, providing a historically important glimpse into the world's greatest ever entertainment phenomenon.
