Julian Lennon, John's elder son, has built a unique collection of Beatles memorabilia, including gold discs, guitars, clothing, jewellery, postcards and more. Now his collection appears in print for the first time and Julian, working with well-known music author Brian Southall, gives an insight into many of the pieces and explains what they mean to him and the family memories they evoke.
Table of Contents
The book starts with an introduction by Julian Lennon and then more than 100 items of memorabilia are displayed in order. Each piece features a description or explanation, and where relevant, the background story and/or Julian's comments.
