The Beatles, The White Album was released in 1968. The cover was designed by Richard Hamilton.
I can’t even begin to describe how stoked I am to have an original poster from The White Album. I went over to my Uncle Andy’s house today and went through a bunch of records that not only were my Dads but his brothers and sisters. I got a few cool albums but, I’m just really excited to have this poster - TWO of them actually. The bottom 3rd was ripped off the bottom of one of them (someone must not have liked Ringo) and has tape on it - clearly it was hanging on someones wall. My Dad passed away almost 2 years ago, and I’m just happy to have anything that was his, especially things from when he was younger. I defiantly want to get it framed and hang it up asap!
this was not art history related, sorry folks!

I love The Beatles.
Which one of the fab four is your favorite?
I bought my first record today (I don’t even have a record player) (yet)… but it cost me $1 and I’m stoked! I already listened to it a bunch on my roommate’s record player, and it’s pretty awesome.
See I knew this would happen… I always put off starting a record collection because I was afraid I would end up spending all my money on them. It’s starting. IT’S STARTING.
Give me your records!
Do you have any favorites?
If anyone is trying to win my heart, this song might help. (sans slideshow)
