When We Was Fab Update

18 Feb 2003

The first printing trials for When We Was Fab have just been completed in Milan. Experiments have been made with three printing techniques and the results are being sent to Astrid Kirchherr in Hamburg for her examination and approval.

Olivia Harrison has kindly agreed to write the Foreword to this lasting tribute to The Beatles and their Hamburg contemporaries.

In her Introduction, Astrid talks about The Beatles being the subjects of her first portraits:

'I tried to capture, not only beautiful faces, but also the look behind those faces - their experiences, what they had been through. When I took most of the pictures, The Beatles weren't famous at all. They were just young boys with great talent, wonderful humour and intelligence. What amazed me was that, behind all the outfits and rock and roll behaviour, they were very sensible, sensitive young men who urged for something new in life, which was exactly what I did then, in the '60s.'
