In 1966, The Beatles departed from their earlier records and pushed the boundaries of rock and pop music by releasing their innovative and seminal album Revolver. Capturing The Beatles' new direction, and visually representing their sound, Klaus Voormann's Revolver cover artwork became instantly iconic. It went on to win the Grammy Award for Best Cover / Graphic Arts on 2nd March 1967 - the first time for a rock and pop album.

Now, 50 years on, Genesis is delighted to offer a celebratory original mixed media artwork created by Klaus Voormann. Featuring a pen and ink drawing that represents the making of this historic Beatles cover, an archival Giclée print on to cotton rag paper is individually embellished with collaged elements, hand-painted in watercolours by Klaus Voormann.

Only 250 artworks will be created. Each artwork is unique and individually signed by Klaus Voormann.
