I Me Mine - The Extended Edition

Rare Editions 2024

The Extended Edition of George Harrison's lyrical memoir. Only 8 Deluxe copies available.

I Me Mine is the closest we will come to George Harrison's autobiography. In 2017, I Me Mine-The Extended Edition represented a significant update on the first printing of 1980. In his own words, I Me Mine now covers the full span of Harrison's life and work, with over 50 song lyrics added (141 songs total), further text commentary, and previously unpublished photographs.

These unopened, Deluxe boxed sets are being released from the original run of only 1,000 copies. All are numbered and authenticated with a George Harrison estate stamp. Deluxe copies are printed on Italian art paper and quarter-bound by hand with gold foil blocking and gilt page edging. Shepard Fairey's cover artwork is screen-printed on buckram. Presented in a solander case, a specially pressed 7" single is included featuring studio and demo versions of 'All Things Must Pass'. This record is only available with I Me Mine Deluxe copies.

Each copy will ship with a facsimile copy of the original 1980 I Me Mine publication brochure, as well as a copy of the 2017 Extended Edition brochure.

Concert for George

Rare Editions 2024

This beautifully produced book honours George Harrison's legacy, from his early days right through to the tribute concert that celebrated his life, told by the people that knew and loved him. Published 20 years ago in 2004 and long-since sold out, this is perhaps a last chance to purchase a brand-new boxed copy from Genesis. 7 available.

The Concert for George brought together some of the world's finest performers for an unprecedented night of celebration. Rock stars, comedians and classical musicians took the stage at the Royal Albert Hall in perfect harmony, united by one thing: a love for their friend George Harrison, whose earthly life came to an end exactly one year before. This classic limited edition takes you backstage at one of the most legendary concerts in music history, with a VIP pass, previously unseen photographs and an original text from those who took part.
 
The show's legendary cast of musicians - including Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, Eric Clapton and Tom Petty - were photographed performing by Jill Furmanovsky and Richard Young, with behind-the-scenes photographs capturing them backstage and in rehearsals. Across more than 308 pages, hundreds of images from some of the world's most respected photographers document George's incredible life - alongside previously unpublished family photos and holiday snaps. 
 
Telling the stories behind the pictures, George's friends and family - nearly 40 contributors in all - share their personal memories. The book's list of contributors includes: Gary Brooker, Joe Brown, Mike Campbell, Jim Capaldi, Eric Clapton, Ray Cooper, Terry Gilliam, Tom Hanks, Dhani Harrison, Olivia Harrison, Jools Holland, Eric Idle, Jim Keltner, Andy Fairweather Low, Jeff Lynne, George Martin, Michael Palin, Tom Petty, Billy Preston, Anoushka Shankar, Ravi Shankar, Ringo Starr, Klaus Voormann, and many more. Introduced by acclaimed novelist and travel writer Paul Theroux, each numbered copy of Concert for George is signed by Olivia Harrison.
 
Featuring bronze page edging, the book is hand-bound in silk-screened cloth over padded boards; the fabric design matching the original stage backdrops. Master printed with additional use of gold and bronze inks, vivid coloured tracing paper pages are also included throughout.
 
Those fortunate enough to attend the concert were given a 28-page commemorative booklet fastened with an orange silk ribbon. Printed onto cartridge paper stock, it contained eight images depicting George through the years. One of these original booklets is included within the folding solander box that houses the limited edition book. In a pocket, you'll also find four laminated backstage passes.

Each boxed copy will ship with the original publication brochures. Only seven copies are being made available.

Revolver 50

Rare Editions 2024

One publisher's Artist Proof collage, hand-created and signed by Klaus Voormann.

The Revolver 50 collage is an original mixed-media artwork. Featuring a pen and ink drawing that represents the making of this historic Beatles cover, an archival Giclée print on cotton rag paper is supplemented with collage pieces drawn and hand-painted in watercolours by Klaus Voormann.
 
Only 250 artworks were released in 2017, each decorated with elements hand-crafted by Voormann - the pens, pencils, scissors, ink wells, and other artists' tools of the trade he used for the cover design, along with playfully-placed photos of The Beatles. The result was a series of unique Revolver-inspired artworks, individually signed in pencil by Klaus Voormann. 
 
This is a unique opportunity to own one of the very first collages ever created - an original proof copy made for the publishers. Ships framed with a signed certificate of authenticity and a copy of the original Revolver 50: Collage Series prospectus.

Another Day in the Life

Rare Editions 2024

Offering readers a unique insight into the world of Ringo Starr, the first Deluxe copies of Another Day in the Life featured a full leather binding and an exclusive photographic print. Each Deluxe copy is signed by Ringo Starr and only 4 are being made available.

In his fully subscribed limited edition, Another Day In The Life, Ringo Starr shares more than 500 observational photographs and rare images from the archives. His original text of nearly 13,000 words illuminates the pages with stories and memories from throughout his life.
 
From Los Angeles to Tokyo and everywhere in between, Ringo's photographs celebrate his love of nature, travel, art and music and offer a glimpse behind the scenes. Many are taken during historic events, such as Ringo's acceptance of a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award and his return to New York's Plaza Hotel 50 years after The Beatles first visited the USA.
 
Fully bound in leather with gilt page edging, the book is presented in a folding Solander case. The Deluxe copies come with a limited edition 10" x 8" photographic print. They are signed by Ringo Starr, with Forewords by Henry Diltz and David Lynch.
