Beatles Books – Hardcover….and Electronic
May 13, 2013
The general consensus from Beatle fans so far is unanimous: the cover art for Mark Lewisohn's first volume in his series of three books is really quite amateur-looking, and I agree:
This is a very disappointing cover, one that doesn't do justice to the high expectations surrounding the release of this long-awaited Beatles book. Someone of Lewisohn's standing should get better than this. It comes out later this year.
Meanwhile, the Linda McCartney book Linda McCartney: Life in Photographs has been released in electronic/digital form on iTunes.
Linda McCartney – Life in Photographs features:
- over 170 photographs selected from Linda's archive of over 200,000 images—most of which users can pinch to zoom
- forewords by Paul, Stella, and Mary McCartney, texts by Annie Leibovitz and Martin Harrison, and excerpts from interviews with Linda from BBC’s highly acclaimed 1994 “Behind the Lens” profile
- a bonus video interview with Paul McCartney and his daughters, Stella and Mary
The collection was produced in close collaboration with Paul McCartney and his children. When it first came out in hard copy the McCartney family released a YouTube video talking about the book.
