Astrid Kirchherr – A Retrospective presents a stunning collection of photographs by the legendary Hamburg photographer, including some never before seen early shots of the Beatles. This richly illustrated book also puts Kirchherr’s work in a context above and beyond the shadow of Merseybeat: though she has taken few photographs since 1967 her work has been exhibited in Hamburg, Bremen, Liverpool, London, Vienna, New York, Washington D.C., Chicago, Los Angeles, Indianapolis and Tokyo, highlighting her significant international presence in photography over the past 50 years. The book draws heavily on unparalleled access to the archives of Astrid Kirchherr and includes photographs of John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Kirchherr's former fiance, Stuart Sutcliffe, as well as other key protagonists in the Beatles story, such as Klaus Voormann and Rory Storm. Essays from acclaimed contemporary music writers Jon Savage and Michael Bracewell complete a book that will be compulsory reading - and viewing - for Beatles fans and photography students alike.

Meet the Beatles . . . right at the beginning of their careers. This gorgeous, high-energy graphic novel is an intimate peek into the early years of the world’s greatest rock band. The heart of Baby’s In Black is a love story. The “fifth Beatle,” Stuart Sutcliffe, falls in love with the beautiful Astrid Kirchherr when she recruits the Beatles for a sensational (and famous) photography session during their time in Hamburg. When the band returns to the UK, Sutcliffe quits, becomes engaged to Kirchherr, and stays in Hamburg. A year later, his meteoric career as a modern artist is cut short when he dies unexpectedly. The book ends as it begins, with Astrid, alone and adrift; but with a note of hope: her life is incomparably richer and more directed thanks to her friendship with the Beatles and her love affair with Sutcliffe. Author/illustrator Arne Bellstorf tells this tender story with stirring, romantic black-and-white artwork. Baby’s In Black is based on a true story.

Stuart Sutcliffe (1940–62) is infamously renowned for his short tenure as “the fifth Beatle” and original bass player for the band—and for his tragic death from a brain hemorrhage at the young age of twenty-one. Less well known are the stylistic contributions he made to both the Beatles—from creating the name of the band with John Lennon to inspiring their original “mop top” cuts—and to the Liverpool and Hamburg art scenes. This volume combines fascinating details from Sutcliffe's time in the pubs, flats, and classrooms of Liverpool and Hamburg with an exploration of Sutcliffe's art. With contributions from Stuart's lover and the acclaimed photographer Astrid Kirchherr, eminent art historian Donald Kuspit and writer John Savage, as well as thirty-two color images from Sutcliffe's work and numerous unpublished black-and-white photos of the artist and members of the Beatles, Stuart Sutcliffe: A Retrospective is a visually stunning celebration of the man, his music, and his art.

In the course of Seamus Heaney's career he assumed roles across education, journalism, and broadcasting, as well as poetry. Seamus Heaney and Society presents a comprehensive and dynamic new engagement with one of the most celebrated poets of the modern period, appreciating how his work as a poet was shaped by his work as a teacher, lecturer, critic, and public figure.0Seamus Heaney and Society draws on a range of archival material in order to revive the network of associations within which Heaney's work was written, published, and circulated. Mindful of the various spheres of his career, it assesses his achievements and status in Ireland, Britain, and the United States through newspapers, magazines, radio and television programmes, and manuscript drafts of key writings now held in the National Library of Ireland. Through asserting the significance of the cultural, institutional, and historical circumstances of Heaney's writing life it offers a re-examination of the writer in public, the social lives of the work of art, and the questions of obligations and responsibility which Heaney confronted throughout his career. 0Throughout, Seamus Heaney and Society addresses the nature and singularity of poetry and the ways in which these qualities are asserted, challenged, and sustained in Heaney's work. It demonstrates that despite the cultural standing and the scholarship that already surrounds his writing there is still a great deal to learn about, and to learn from, Seamus Heaney.

A Women's History of the Beatles is the first book to offer a detailed presentation of the band's social and cultural impact as understood through the experiences and lives of women. Drawing on a mix of interviews, archival research, textual analysis, and autoethnography, this scholarly work depicts how the Beatles have profoundly shaped and enriched the lives of women, while also reexamining key, influential female figures within the group's history. Organized topically based on key themes important to the Beatles story, each chapter uncovers the varied and multifaceted relationships women have had with the band, whether face-to-face and intimately or parasocially through mediated, popular culture. Set within a socio-historical context that charts changing gender norms since the early 1960s, these narratives consider how the Beatles have affected women's lives across three generations. Providing a fresh perspective of a well-known tale, this is a cultural history that moves far beyond the screams of Beatlemania to offer a more comprehensive understanding of what the now iconic band has meant to women over the course of six decades.
