Each book is filled with several hundred full color and original black & white images of 45 rpm discs, picture sleeves, album labels, album covers, promotional posters, rare point-of-purchase displays, memorabilia, Billboard magazine ads, company documents and, of course, the Beatles themselves. Many of these images are from Bruce’s extensive Beatles collection, while others were contributed by top Beatles collectors and dealers throughout the world.
