I don’t expect to ever collect the vinyl of the Beatles albums, but I’d love to have all the art in full size. Does a book exist that collects all the covers and sleeve material?

My hot take is that after the Beatles split they went down the paths of spiritualism, solipsism, alcoholism, and Paul McCartney

You could  buy the albums second hand, I love album cover art. I buy from places such as  as ebay or charity shops. I have a few very specially framed covers such as Abbey Road and Revolver , the rest just go in regular frames. It’s not the condition of the vinyl I am  interested in,  but the album cover – but I am picky about getting original pressings or as near as, not new releases of album editions. Books can’t really give you the full impact of the art, I don’t think.

I slowly bought all the UK LPs EPs & Singles until I had them all.  You’ve got all your life to collect them!

Then you got all the album art you need.mccartney-shrug_01_gif

@meaigs The Beatles: An Illustrated Record by Roy Carr and Tony Tyler is an LP sized book and features some (not all) of the album artwork in that scale. 

There are also prints you can buy of the album covers. They are available in different sizes including 12 x 12.
