This compilation of Beatles lyrics is a must for Beatles fans. The lavishly illustrated book revisits over 200 favorite songs and journeys through the poetic muses of a band that changed the way we look at music as well as ourselves. It is the ultimate tribute to the Beatles; the dazzling artwork - contributed by some of the greatest artists of our time - gives an enduring and captivating picture of the Fab Four" s artistic influence through the decades and works as beautiful accompaniment to the songs. As the editor comments in the introduction, " [this book is as] entertaining to the eye and the imagination as a Beatles album is to the ear." The magic remains.
