The Revolver cover
Klaus Voormann has received his copy of the upcoming “Revolver” boxed set, and is happy that the label logo (Parlophone, Capitol, Odeon, depending on country of origin) and the album title are not present on the outer box art.
Here’s what he wrote on Instagram:
MY ORIGINAL REVOLVER ARTWORK
It moves me very much to see that for the very first time, the original final artwork is shown on the boxset cover of the Revolver Super Deluxe set the way I drew it 1966, without lettering and logo. My fee back in these days amounted 50 British pounds.
That launch brings back many beautiful memories as well as some painful ones. This includes that till today, I still do not know what happened to my original artwork. Supposedly, it disappeared without a trace.
Wherever you might see it hanging or watching somebody passing your way while carrying it under the arm – let me know.
Love + Peace + Health
Meanwhile, over on YouTube, Parlogram Auctions have made a video to show where the various photos on the collage came from.
The latter two photos submitted to the blog by Stephen McGowan.
