Hi There Fellow Beatles Fans – been checking out this forum and this thread for a while now but just finally registered today.

 

Although I'm 100% sure this counts as "Memorabilia", I thought I'd show off a few pieces of original artwork from Tom Wilkes the album cover artist that I just picked up.  Tom was responsible for a number of Beatles album covers including the two Beatles compilation albums released in 1973, "The Beatles 1962-1966", "The Beatles 1967-1970" and a number of George Harrison's albums (he designed a number of other album-covers as well for Rollings Stones, Janis Joplin, etc.) and perhaps is most known for being the art director for the great Monterey Pop Festival.

 

The 3 pieces of Tom's that I have are all pretty different and in my opinion pretty cool….the one that's most closely linked to The Beatles is the original artwork that Tom submitted to George Harrison for the cover of 'All Things Must Pass', but was ultimately rejected as 'too controversial' at the time.  I don't know the entire story behind this, but I recently reached out to the awesome author Bruce Spizer who wrote the book “The Beatles Solo on Apple Records”, and it appears to be Tom’s art work for his “All Things Must Pass” poster before the photos were inserted.  More info about this piece can been found by reading Tom's letter to George here (http://www.allthingsmustpass.c…..index.html click on 'A' for 'Album Art'' to read the letter).

 

I'm going to try and link/embed some photos below from photobucket, I'd love to hear everyone's thoughts whether you think it's pretty cool, horribly ugly, or just want to let me know that my first post on this awesome board is totally in the wrong place!

 

Thanks!

 

The first pic below I found online, the rest of the pics I took in my living room.

Some of my favorite things to collect is the Beatles Green Duck buttons, the Vari-Vue Flashers and of course their albums!

I've got a list started of some of my Beatles memorabilia collection with pictures.

Grandparents are visiting and they have brought with them a couple of goodies for me a-hard-days-night-george-9.

The John Lennon Letters, I didn´t realise it was going to be such a pretty book to look at, just plain white, of course, but somehow really pretty. And heavy. Can´t wait to begin reading it.

A cool bowl made out of a Yellow Submarine LP. Very funky, me likey lots.

I began reading the first chapter last night and so far – very good. I like it how there is plenty of info about each letter because otherwise I wouldn't know anything about them and it would be a bit boring.
