Beatles Art: Fantastic New Artwork of the Fab Four

Edited by Linda Webb

The music of the Beatles helped define the 1960s, and inspired not only musicians, but artists of the day who captured the spirit of John, Paul, George, and Ringo in their artwork. The Beatles continue to inspire artists, and some of the best examples of these images have been compiled by Boxigami Books.

The book features new art inspired by the Beatles and their music. It showcases some of the best new artists and illustrators from different regions of the globe all demonstrating their creativity on topics such as the Beatles music and lyrics.

Beatles Art truly captures the spirit of the group from the serious to the fun, and even includes additional statements and comments from select artists on how the Beatles impacted their art, their lives, and the world.

The Foreword is by Jock Bartley from the US band Firefall, who shares his own thoughts on the Beatles in an open and honest way that genuinely sets the tone for the great art contained in the book. Jock is an artist, musician, and a Beatle fan, so he brings his own unique perspective to the topic.
