B27987 – Genesis Publications Songs By George Harrison Volumes 1 & 2 CD Editions (UK)

£3,000.00

Volume One. In 1985 artist Keith West was introduced to George Harrison and so began a close collaboration to produce a stunning set of watercolours illustrating the composer’s many memorable songs. The book is number 1060 of an edition 2500 copies, each one is signed by George Harrison and hand-bound in beautiful black three-quarter leather with gild tooling, presented in a hand-made solander box, individually numbered and personally autographed by George Harrison and Keith West. A CD housed in a sliding drawer inside the two-tray solander box, contains previously unreleased material. The method of production entailed the completion of detailed pencil studies after careful discussion on all the lyrics. Keith, one of the finest botanical watercolour artists in the world, soon found himself travelling regularly from his cottage in North Wales to Oxfordshire to discuss with George the interpretations of his song lyrics in order to prepare the illustrations for this volume. To complement these delightful images the artist has hand-lettered the words to the songs. The lyrics are embellished with additional small paintings that possess an irresistible charm.

Volume Two. The book includes fifty-nine further songs by George Harrison, beautifully illustrated in rich colours by Keith. Volume Two contains such classics as ‘I Me Mine’, ‘My Sweet Lord’, ‘Something’ and ‘All Things Must Pass’. The book is number 1060 of an edition of 2,500 copies, each one is signed by George Harrison and hand-bound in a beautiful black three-quarter leather binding, presented in a two-tray box, individually numbered and personally autographed by George Harrison and Keith West. As with Volume One, a CD recording of four more unreleased tracks accompanies the book which is housed in a sliding drawer inside the two-tray solander box.

The books comes in the original Genesis Publications mailing boxes.

Each box measures 20cm x 28.25cm x 6cm (8 inches x 11.25 inches x 2.3 inches). The condition of the collection is excellent.
