The Beatles “1’s” Box set includes 4 T-shirts, featuring four of the most iconic images of John, Paul, George and Ringo in music / pop culture history.
In August 1967, The Beatles and their band manager Brian Epstein enlisted the photographer Richard Avedon to help visualize the psychedelic foundations of their groundbreaking eighth studio album Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band, which debuted a few months earlier. Through color manipulation, Avedon created hallucinatory, Day-Glo portraits of the Liverpool band brimming with symbolism of psychedelia, peace, and love—John Lennon gazes out through swirling glasses, Paul McCartney holds flowers, George Harrison is decorated with henna, and Ringo Starr carries a dove. A year later, Avedon’s photographs—along with collectible posters—were released simultaneously in popular magazines across the world, including Look in the United States, The Daily Express in the United Kingdom, and Stern Magazine in Europe. Iconic images in both art and music history, Avedon’s portraits of The Beatles can be found in the permanent collections of the Museum of Modern Art in New York and The Victoria and Albert Museum in London, among other institutions worldwide.
