9780810959118: The Beatles: 365 Days

Photographs from the archives of Getty Images, London, by a wide variety of photographers, including Robert Whitaker

The Beatles: 365 Days is a dazzling photographic survey-in 425 black-and-white and color images, most of which are rarely or never before seen-that follows the Beatles through the arc of their spectacular career from 1963 to 1970. Arranged chronologically, the photos trace the story of the band, from their emergence on the scene in England, through their rise to international superstardom, to their very public breakup in 1970. Every aspect of their evolution from mop-tops to legends is depicted, including their personal lives, performances, press conferences, recording sessions, public appearances, photo sessions, filmmaking, and more. The captions by Simon Wells are rich in detail and provide both band history and cultural context for the photographs, as well as quotes from members of the band and those associated with them that have never been published.

The insatiable hunger for new books about the Beatles has never waned, and this arresting volume-with its wealth of never- and seldom-seen pictures that have long been embargoed at the Getty Images archive-will have a special appeal for all Beatles fans.

About the Author:

Simon Wells, a longtime devoted Beatles fan, has contributed numerous articles on film and music to a variety of newspapers and magazines, including The Guardian, The Times, and The Beatles' Book, the group's official journal. His first book, Your Face Here: British Cult Movies Since the 1960s, was a critical success and made the BBC's Top Ten Books of the Year for 2001. He lives in Sussex, England.

From Publishers Weekly:

Culling from a previously embargoed archive of Getty images held in London, pop culture writer Wells has gathered and presented a hefty 430 shots of the Beatles, taken on 365 different days from 1963 to 1987—including shots never seen before. Well produced and accompanied by insightful interview clips or other short descriptive texts, also gathered by Wells, the book spans the life and times of the Beatles, personally and professionally, both individually and as a group, offering fans an entertaining, graphic history.
