Alan Aldridge, The Beatles Illustrated Lyrics (London: Macdonald Unit 75, 1969)

SIGNED BY YOKO ONO




This is a first edition (softcover) of The Beatles Illustrated Lyrics featuring the psychedelic graphics of Alan Aldridge and others. Aldridge writes in the preface, ‘I should like to believe that this book is more than merely a selection of drawings of Beatles’ songs. I see it as an illustration of the sixties.’ Also containing work by David Bailey, John Deakin, David Hockney and Ronald Searle, the book’s look epitomises the period’s particular kind of surrealism.

This book was presented to a fan by Yoko One, widow of John Lennon. On the title page she has written: ‘To Victor, love, Yoko NYC Nov ‘86’ (title page). Yoko is a significant presence within the book, featuring in both the illustrations and as muse to such lyrics as ‘Don’t let me down’ and ‘Happiness is a warm gun’. Victor = Victor Ross, noted autograph hunter and sometime CEO of Reader's Digest (Europe).
The book (56pp. 11 x 8.5 inches) was intended to be quite handsome (original price 25 shillings – about $30 in today’s money) and has suffered no more than light wear to the covers over the years. Apart from Yoko Ono’s inscription there are no other markings within the book.
