Today I want to share and recommend a gorgeous oversized book which shares an energetic wave of nostalgia that is all too easy to get lost in… The Beatles On the Road 1964-1966. Harry Benson captured endless images of The Beatles on the road, landmark moments of music history. These photographs are PHENOMENAL… often candid, sharing the contagious fun and upbeat spirit that surrounded The Beatles. The book alone is a treasure to own, and for you die hards who want even MORE of this good thing, the limited edition images for some of these photos are also available through Taschen, the publisher of so many incredible books. All I have to say to that is- WOW. Let’s take a look:
The Fab Five
“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, 2012

Glasgow-born Harry Benson has photographed every US President since Eisenhower, the Civil Rights movement, and was next to Robert Kennedy when he was assassinated. As well as The Beatles, he has shot some of the biggest personalities of the last 50 years, including Michael Jackson, Elizabeth Taylor and Her Majesty The Queen. In 2009, he was made Commander of the British Empire (CBE).
