Klaus Voormann on the Revolver Album Cover Artwork

"Well, it came out of the blue. I wasn't doing any art in those days. I was playing music in bands, and suddenly John called me and said, 'Look, Klaus, if you have any idea for our next album cover, scribble it down and let us see it. And if it's something we like, you might get the gig.' So I did sketches and I had ten or fifteen suggestions, ideas, but I already liked this one with the hair. I went to the studio, which was always a good idea while they were recording the work, because you needed time to do the cover as much as they needed time to finish the LP. I showed it to them and they all jumped on this idea of the four heads and those little figures."
