Peter Blake - Sgt Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band album cover design from Turnbull Studio on Vimeo.
if that don't work don't see the point of vimeo -Always remember seeing the cover art for Sarge for the first time in 1980 guess I was seven , my next door neighbours folks had a copy I went over their so he could help me build a Stuka lol (modelling kits were the thing back then) Not sure I could name anyone on cover I know most of the cover stars now of course but used to think Alister Crowley was Yul Brenner lol -I've done a few Pepper Collages myself I may do a third if I find a good reason to. the era between Revolver & Pepper fascinates me it reminds me of how I used to think as a kid that everything before colour television came out was in black and white and when the first colour tv came out that made reality technicolor -I think Tomorow Never Knows captures the monochrome world on its deathbed whilst Pepper signalled colours birth -which is kinda true in a way ..John and Richard Lester OST provided by Paul -funny seeing this through a proper shaped tv rather than those glorified monoliths that switch themselves off (meaning flatscreen tv) More Austin Powers than Austin Powers .. It seemed a confusing time for the Fab 4 what with Brian dying and that swami con man waiting in the wings ...may as well as get onto the main course guess it was time Beatles stopped been "Mockers" I still sneer at hippies to this day thanks lol..I was doing my work experience so I was 14 in a Box Factory first couple of days I'd be sweeping the floor as the week progressed I was on production line and finally design at least the box design -the artwork would be elsewhere in the country (if only the real work life progressed in such a way and as fast ) but back in 87 I got to see a holographic CD Boxset of Pepper before it came out I guess their was very ltd run of these but nice see artwork again.. looks like they've moved Beatles around not sure if Peter Blake was involved
