More Lennon as Superman pics

S-logo changed to JL for the book’s cover.

More outtakes from the photo session for “The Penguin John Lennon” book have come to light. And as a Superman fan, I’m always delighted when my two main hobbies come together like this. More about Beatles/Superman connections in my previous blog post here.

Thanks to Mark for alerting me to these new photos, all photos are by Alan Aldridge. The finished book cover featured an altered S-logo, but from the outtakes we can see that it was the real deal.

    In his book, "The Man With The Kaleidoscope Eyes," Aldridge notes that his original concept for "The Penguin John Lennon" was to dress Lennon as penguin. I would have loved to have seen that…
