Full Description


This book is the ultimate and exclusive resource for anybody interested in the clash between the gentle citizens of "Pepperland" and the hated "Blue Meanies" who threatened to rob the world of its color and music. Until now, very little true research has ever been done about this memorable achievement in The Beatles' career. This book reveals countless facts about the movie from the man who has met with nearly everyone associated with the film. It includes photos depicting scenes and characters from the movie, as well as candid shots of many behind-the-scenes people. Features original art from the movie, an introduction by Sir George Martin (The Beatles' producer) and a foreword by Erich Segal (scriptwriter of the movie). This amazing book is for any fan of The Beatles' music, movies or animation.
