Sgt. Pepper Photos
With the 50th anniversary reissue of The Beatles‘ Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band less than two weeks away, SDE would like to direct your attention to a fascinating project.
Chris Shaw’s Sgt. Pepper Photos is a blog with a remit to “locate the source images used on the cover of The Beatles’ 1967 album Sgt Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band”.
Chris goes through each person on the cover, one-by-one, giving you details and background and shows you the original source for each image. Great stuff!
