As part of my present job at Henry Sotheran Ltd, the longest established antiquarian booksellers in the world (York 1761), I get to design the catalogues. In this particular occasion we had a beautiful collection of engraved books of Wagner’s operas for the Performing Arts catalogue. A colleague as a challenge said: I dare you include Wagner and the Beatles as a cover design.
I came up with the above design: Siegfried and the iconic representation of the Beatles by Richard Avedon in the form of a postcard.
