About this item
Strictly limited to 1967 hand-numbered copies, each hardcover book is individually hand-signed by Henry Grossman and housed in a deluxe clamshell case. The book's 240 silver-edged pages are printed on heavyweight art paper with image varnishing. Also included is a portfolio containing four limited edition black and white museum-quality prints and a reproduction of one of Henry's original contact sheets – all suitable for framing. During 1967, the group were hard at work on Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band, writing, recording, and experimenting behind closed doors at EMI's famed Abbey Road studios. Though the album took five months to record, few of these ground-breaking sessions were photographed. However, Henry Grossman spent an evening in the studio with the band as they began work on a new song: “Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds”. Henry documented the entire session with his camera, taking more than 250 black and white photographs over the course of the evening. Only a small handful of these amazing pictures has ever been seen by the public. For the first time ever the entire collection of black and white photos, including more than 220 never-published pictures, are presented in chronological order, allowing the evening to unfold for the reader just as it did for Henry. ‘Kaleidoscope Eyes’ reveals The Beatles at the height of their creative powers, recording the body of work many would hail as the greatest album of all time. Don't miss the opportunity to own this historic collection of photos in its entirety. This is No. 1237 in the limited edition. This edition sold out very shortly after publication and is now highly sought after. We have managed to obtain a few copies, the original retail price was $695 (approximately £545)
