Beatle Books: From Genesis to Revolution

by W. Fraser Sandercombe

This is a book about Beatles books. There are thousands of listings inside. What was written about them during the 1960s was nothing compared to what came next. People had finally realised how absolutely unique The Beatles truly were. And they were beginning to realise that nothing quite like The Beatles would ever exist again. By 1983, there had been two hundred books about them; and by 2008, about twelve hundred more. And every year brings another mountain of writing about them, enough to keep a collector hunting forever. The titles are listed alphabetically, with publisher and author information included. Books by the band, about the band and featuring the band, as well as the better reproductions of their music in print are included.
