Harry Benson. The Beatles - Reviews

Page 1 2 3
“These photos convey a really happy period for them and for me. It all comes down to music‚ they were without a doubt the greatest band of the 20th century‚ and that's why these photographs are so important.”— Harry Benson, 2011
“With two shelf–hoggingly huge silver hardback ‘Art’ editions and a standard collectors edition limited to 1‚764 copies‚ you can expect a Beatlemania–style clamour in bookshops. Shrieking and fainting is‚ of course‚ optional.”— Shortlist, London, United Kingdom
“Benson’s luminous pictures show The Beatles performing, with fans, and relaxing amidst their increasing isolation.”— Irish Independent, Dublin, Ireland
“The Beatles fans will be looking forward to the latest TASCHEN’s exceptional collection of Harry Benson photography from the glory years of the super group. Harry Benson: The Beatles is a 272 page‚ 12 x 17 inch! hardcover book inside a solid clamshell closure. 1,764 signed and numbered copies are being produced. Two art editons of 100 copies each with silver gelatin prints are available on TASCHEN (though one is already sold out).”— selectism.com, Berlin, Germany
“Benson charts the band’s journey in pictures both intimate and impromptu‚ taking us behind–the–scenes on their road to fame‚ from pillow fights at the George V Hotel in Paris and their first visit to the US – a truly patriotic keepsake.”— Mayfair Magazine, London, United Kingdom
“Count on TASCHEN to up the ante on any cultural trope. The newly released The Beatles: On the Road 1964-1966 is a lavish collection of hundreds of Harry Benson's luminous black–and–white photographs of the Fab Four at close quarters – from ecstatic encounters with fans to quiet moments in the recording studio to playful boyish frolicking.“— brainpickings.org, New York, United States
“Benson unveils never–before–seen images of the Fab Four in his landmark book for TASCHEN… nobody had a more privileged glimpse of the Fabs in their first flash of fame.”— Hollywoodreporter.com, Los Angeles, United States
“The past year has been a boon for seeing The Beatles with new eyes—from their tour manager's never-before-published tour photos to Linda McCartney's tender portraits to rediscovered vintage children's books—but count on TASCHEN to up the ante on any cultural trope. The newly released The Beatles: On the Road 1964-1966 is a lavish collection of hundreds of Harry Benson's luminous black-and-white photographs of the Fab Four at close quarters—from ecstatic encounters with fans to quiet moments in the recording studio to playful boyish frolicking.”— theatlantic.com, Washington, United States
“They were the greatest and most influential act of the rock era‚ and introduced more innovations into popular music than any other rock band of the 20th century.”— Social & Personal, Dublin, Ireland
“Beatles All Over Your Coffee Table. Beatlemania in France. You really missed out. This British newspaperman didn’t. And now he’s turning the lesser–known‚ more–intimate highlights (read: that hotel pillow fight in Paris) into something compelling for your coffee table. Or extremely heavy for the beach.”— urbandaddy.com, United States
