It originally sold over a million copies and this Special Collector’s edition retains the original cover art. It is filled with rare photographs that depict a day in the life of the Beatles and charts their journey to becoming to world’s biggest band.
This Special Collector’s edition relives the days of Beatlemania and is a unique piece of memorabilia, perfect for any Beatles fan.
“This is the ideal book for an introduction to what the boys were all about just as they were breaking big…Enjoy this piece of historical Beatles literacy once again.”
‘British Beatles Fan Club Magazine’
“A uniquely first-hand introduction to the Beatles as they were in 1963…A terrific book, crammed with facts and figures and brilliant photographs – nostalgia at its very finest.”
“Ingenious… they took the magazine that you remember and they reprinted it and bound it into a hardback book… A breath of fresh air… of a time when Beatlemania was something new.”
‘Meet The Beatles for Real’
“A great book”
‘The British Beatles Fanclub’
“A faithful reissue of the original… it is very much an introduction to the band… as well as rarely seen images taken from their first London appearance.”
‘Norwegian Wood blog’
“Today, the world needs no introduction to The Beatles. But, back in 1963, it was slightly different and this Meet the Beatles book was their first official book… it is very much an introduction to the band… Masses of retro appeal.”
‘Retro to Go’
“A special collector’s edition… that includes rare, intimate photographs.”
