Norman Parkinson With The Beatles

09 December 2013

Our long awaited publication on the photo series Norman Parkinson shot of the Fab Four is due for release.

Entitled ‘Norman Parkinson with The Beatles’ (a play on the title of the album they are photographed recording), this monograph is a collection of rarely and never before seen images all taken on one day – the 12th September 1963. The Beatles were photographed at the President Hotel in Bloomsbury and in the studio at Abbey Road. In addition to the famous ‘kebab’ shot (as it was nicknamed by Parkinson), there are many behind the scenes shots of the band rehearsing and recording.

We will release further details about publication date shortly. Keep an eye out for sneak previews coming soon.
