Hervé Bourhis, creator of The Little Book of Rock, turns his unique graphic talents to the legend of The Beatles, told from the very beginning.
Bourhis' visual imagination illuminates the individual lives of each band member from their pre-Beatles youth to what would become a rock band of phenomenal worldwide fame.
All of the epic details of their story are vivdly evoked: the triumphs, the quarrels, the supreme musical creativity and of course the inevitable break-up.
The story then goes on to follow the personal destinies of John, Paul, George and Ringo, four Liverpool lads who were by turns ambitious, clever, facetious, arrogant, down-to-earth and supremely talented. Their's was the ultimate rock band story and Hervé Bourhis has done it - and them - full justice in this superb and exuberant graphic biography
