The Beatles Posters - 1960s Concert Artwork

Post by alisondt » Thu Apr 05, 2018 10:46 am

Hey everyone,

Just joined the forum and thought I would contribute by passing on some interesting news for everyone interested in The Beatles stuff. I got an email about the relaunch of http://thebeatlesposters.com which is the website of Tony Booth. Tony was the original poster & graphic artist for The Beatles in the early 1960s. He was known around Liverpool as Brian Epstein's "right-hand man".

As a previous customer of Tony when I bought some fantastic poster prints off his website last year, I can vouch for his unique style that really defines The Beatles era. The man is an icon in many ways and I was deeply saddened by his passing last year, its very nice of the family to carry on his legacy by keeping his website going.

You can see the full poster collection of 1960s Beatles concert posters at http://thebeatlesposters.com/collection ... 0s-artwork

If you are as fanatic about The Beatles as me, you may lose an hour of your life so be wary haha.

  • Firstly Welcome to the 'Guild', it's a delight to see a new member posting! To be honest, I am not one of the "Beatles" fanatics, though I grew up with their music and I do own quite a good bunch of their releases. I haven't spent serious thoughts about the poster artwork ever, but nevertheless it was interesting to get some info about this topic. Thank you for sharing your thoughts and the links.
