A GRAPHIC HISTORY OF THE WORLD'S FAVOURITE BAND
This is the story of the Beatles told as never before.
Explored visually, through stunning infographics and data visualisations, this book takes you on a vibrant ride through the Beatles years – from their first Cavern Club gig to the release of Let It Be.
Presenting unique, witty and surprising facts and stories, covering everything from their style to plans for a Beatles Island, Visualising the Beatles charts how four young men evolved into one of the world’s greatest bands. It also includes beautiful visuals created from the data their music left behind, divided by album, to allow you to spot, in an instant, the patterns, anomalies and changes in the band’s lyrics, instruments, songwriting and performances.
Visualizing The Beatles began as a single chapter, launched on crowdfunding platform Kickstarter in 2014. After being featured by Fast Company, Gizmodo and Kickstarter themselves, the project raised £10,000 and was shipped to backers all over the world.
In 2016, the full book was complete and released in the UK on Orphans Publishing, before being picked up by Dey Street Books, an imprint of Harper Collins, in the United States.
On May 1st 2018, Visualizing The Beatles was released on Dey Street Books. It is available to buy now via Harper Collins, Barnes & Noble, Amazon, Walmart, Books-A-Million, Indie Bound and all good retailers.
In 2018/19, we look forward to seeing the release of foreign language versions on fantastic publishers in Germany and Spain.
