A book of many years dedicated research Stuart - The Life and Art of Stuart Sutcliffe
is a unique and personal tribute to an extraordinarily talented young man, from some of those that were closest to him – Astrid Kirchherr, Cynthia Lennon, Jurgen Vollmer & Paul McCartney.
The limited edition box set contains two superbly printed books. The first, a definitive illustrated biography of Stuart. The second, a facsimile reproduction of one of his artist sketchbooks.
The two volumes combine to provide both the first comprehensive catalogue of Stuart Sutcliffe's art, and an unrivalled view into the formative years of the band later to conquer the world as The Beatles.
Signed by Astrid Kirchherr, Pauline Sutcliffe, Kay Williams the book is quarter bound in leather and linen and silk-screen printed in two colours. A laminated slipcase featuring two of Astrid Kirchherr's classic images of Stuart and The Beatles encases the edition. Additionally, a facsimile sketchbook bound in paper-covered boards to closely match Stuart's original is included with each edition.
