A new limited-edition book featuring more than 1,000 images of The Beatles taken by veteran photographer Henry Grossman is now available for purchase. Places I Remember: My Time with the Beatles includes a ton of photos Grossman snapped of the Fab Four during a four-year relationship that dates back to the band's first appearance on The Ed Sullivan Show in February 1964.
The 528-page book offers photos of The Beatles on movie sets, in studio and in concert, as well as candid shots of them at home with their families and friends and just hanging out. The introduction is written by Paul McCartney and most of the photos are previously unpublished. Only 1,200 copies have been produced, with 250 of them personally signed by Grossman.
Are you sitting down? The book is priced at $495 for unsigned copies and $795 for autographed copies. Well-healed Beatles fans can get a copy at Curvebender.com.
Look, I'm a capitalist. Good for Grossman. A lot of photographers (and musicians) go through life never being compensated for their art. But let's hope that, after the limited edition is gone, the rest of us schlubs get a chance to peek at the contents with a lower-priced or online version of the book!
Given John Lennon's political leanings, I 'Imagine' he would have preferred the book be free.
