The Beatles (Astrid Kirchherr) (PT58)
A very rare set of three signed publicity postcards
A set of three early publicity postcards illustrated with individual black and white, head and shoulders length portraits by celebrity photographer Astrid Kirchherr.
The images of John Lennon, Paul McCartney and George Harrison are circa 1962.
Each has individually signed and inscribed on the reverse of their respective images.
"Love to Brenda from John Lennon xxxx" in blue ink
"To Brenda love Paul McCartney xxx" in red ink.
And also in blue ink "To Brenda love from George Harrison xxxx".
Three excellent examples of sought after early signatures from Lennon, McCartney and Harrison.
1962 was when the Beatles first recorded under George Martin at the Abbey Road studios.
Martin had complained about Pete Best's drumming and suggest he be replaced with a session drummer - Ringo Starr. Interestingly it is the drummer who is missing in these signed postcard images.
German photographer Kirchherr is heavily associated with The Beatles however signed images of her work are exceptionally scarce.
A superb piece.
