BIG: Beatles In Germany

Tony Sheridan, Günter Zint

'I grew up in Hamburg, not Liverpool.' – John Lennon

Beatles In Germany is a profound pictorial document of that bond between The Beatles and their 'guardian' country: from their first trip to Hamburg in 1960 to a national tour and John's film work in 1966.

BIG: Beatles In Germany

'A terrific pictorial document' Beatle Brunch radio show

Containing rare and unseen photographs of The Beatles accompanied by a full length commentary, Astrid Kirchherr and photographer Günter Zint also add their recollections to the book.

Among these gems, all superbly reproduced, are the classic Top Ten Club photographs by Peter Brüchmann and the unseen Günter Zint Bravo-Blitztournee images.
