ahdn_paul_06 I own 10 of these books as well @WeepingAtlasCedars. Sometimes it's nice to be able to hold a book in your hand, as opposed to the computer on your lap. Where's Ringo doesn't ring a bell. Is it similar to Where's Waldo?

Yep! It's sort of a cross between Where's Waldo? and those I Spy books: Your main objective is to find Ringo, but there are other additional people/things to find, too.

Yep, though I should have specified that it's the 2017 hardcover edition (I'll edit my original post and put that in, whoops paul-mccartney-facepalm_gif). Not only was it on sale, but I had a Chapters gift card, so instead of having to fork over $80 or whatever they wanted for it I only had to pay somewhere around $20.a-hard-days-night-john-1

My copy is from the original 1980 printing. Got it for my birthday that year. It's in deep offsite storage or I'd take a picture (it's been well read). The cover looks like this:

Looks like Where's Ringo is available on Amazon. I checked out some of the artwork and it's in a style I like, so just might add it to the collection. Something to play with while I'm enjoying the new Let It Be music.

Is it the original original Genesis Publications printing, or the subsequent mass-market printing?

I wonder? I remember receiving it right after it came out, but my birthday gift might have arrived later than I thunk. I'll have to run over to storage and take a look. ahdn_george_01

Got this lot of Beatle Books from Facebook Marketplace yesterday. It turned out the guy lives a mile and a half from me. We worked out the social distancing aspect and things went smoothly. These are more picture oriented books with either limited text or with information that can be found elsewhere. Most date from the late 80's and early 90's. They are all near mint and in a lot better shape then some of the books I had already (let's just say I read my books). The one that really interested me was the book on the bottom. I borrowed it from the library a long time ago. It has pictures from the Larry Parnes audition, not just of the Beatles but others as well. I'm glad to finally have it.
This purchase also point's out why I prefer to buy kindle now. Most of these are hardcover coffee table books and are quite heavy. The others are trade paperbacks and are still unwieldy.

It's pretty heavy for a paperback; trade sizing, nice grade of paper, and over 300 pages.

One of the first books of Beatle scholarship; very influential.

By no means a classic, but I really rate this book. Surprisingly accessible for such a large volume, beautiful colour photographs and typography, while also having some great facts and Easter eggs for die hard fans. Like many of the Beatles books I own, I got this one as a gift, but it's one of the few I genuinely revert back to regularly.

These are 2 Beatles must haves.  (Just the facts)

Great way to cross reference every little detail you wanted to know about The Beatles......

 

1) Every recording session of every song, album & movie.

2) Every instrument used, on every song, album & movie.
