Beatle fans should check out the new limited edition version of Klaus Voormann’s classic Revolver 50 from Genesis Publications which chronicles the creation of Voormann’s cover for The Beatles’ epic 1966 album, Revolver. The book is organized like a graphic novel and covers meeting The Beatles in Hamburg prior to Ringo joining the group, the early days of Beatlemania, and traveling to Abbey Road Studios in London to present the album artwork to John, Paul, George, and Ringo.
“In the end, the Revolver cover was a classic and this book is another," said Paul McCartney in his new introduction. Voormann, who went on to become one of the era's premier studio bassists, won a GRAMMY in 1967 for the cover. The new edition is limited to 500 copies and each are hand-signed by Voormann. Revolver 50 includes introductions by McCartney as well as Ringo Starr plus a signed original pencil drawing and a special GRAMMY Anniversary 12-page commemorative booklet.
