The Beatles in Posters: A Collection of Concert Artwork by Tony Booth by Tony Booth
Artist Tony Both worked in Liverpool during the early 1960s, just around the corner from The Cavern Club and close to the Beatles' manager Brian Epstein's office in Whitechapel. Tony's work caught Epstein's eye, and he would go on to produce posters, printed leaflets and a wide variety of publicity and display materials for Epstein's artists, most notably for a young four-piece beat combo called the Beatles. Alongside his work for Epstein, Tony produced hand-painted gig posters for many promoters, including Sam Leach, Allan Williams and The Cavern Club's DJ Bob Wooler, who also promoted many of the big events. Tony's original posters now fetch a considerable sum of money, and The Beatles in Posters features these as well as exact replicas of those that have been lost to time. This is the first book of its type and is a must-buy for all fans of the Fab Four and the Merseybeat scene.
