Artist's slick is pencil signed on the white border by the photographer. This cover for the Beatles' 1966 release, “The Beatles Yesterday and Today”, portrays the smiling band members surrounded by beheaded dolls and fake “guts”. This image is considered to be the holy grail of Beatles collectibles, due in large part to the controversy surrounding this seemingly innocent artistic expression. The Beatles' sharp criticism of the American music industry, which the they felt “butchered” the original UK recordings of their songs, was not taken too well by their American constituents. Consequently, the covers were removed from the shelves almost immediately following their release. This stunning proof is in NRMT condition. Matted to 13x14.5”, framed to 21x22”.
