Join the Beatles as they set off on a magical adventure to bring music and love back to Pepperland in this anniversary paperback.
Once upon a time (or maybe twice), some 80,000 leagues beneath the sea, there lay a colourful land of music and laughter called Pepperland – a place where Sergeant Pepper’s Lonely Hearts’ Club Band was always playing your song. That is, until the Blue Meanies burst on the scene and chased all the magical music away...
So began the classic 1968 film Yellow Submarine, inspired by the iconic song, which was quickly hailed as a visionary masterpiece: an avant-garde amalgam of Heinz Edelmann’s pop art, groundbreaking animation techniques and the Beatles’ wonderful music.
This anniversary edition marks 50 years of the Yellow Submarine animation, showcasing its dazzling images and lighthearted, witty tale in a book to be savoured by fans of all ages.
