This remarkable tribute will include rare, unseen, and newly discovered images alongside Starr’s unique perspective on The Beatles phenomenon as he offers a modern, intimate, and loving look at his illustrious and precious time as one of the members of the most popular band to ever exist (objectively). 

Quarantine and lockdowns were ordinary for many, if not all of us, but Starr was able to reflect on his time as a Beatle (must be nice) and lift images that he loves from the internet and his personal collection in between recording EPs.

“These fantastic images came back to me in recent years from across the universe and have somehow helped me get back to seeing my life with The Fab Four through fresh eyes,” Ringo Starr explained of the origins and inspirations for the upcoming book.

“A lot of the photos in this book I saw on my phone and on my computer and I lifted them because they brought back so many fabulous memories. 

“In recent years, I’d gather these Beatles photos that I didn’t have and sometimes barely remembered. 

“After a while, I thought, how great it would be that we can lift these fantastic photos for charity, tell my true tales about what we four went through and then make a great new book out of it. 

“And the best thing is that it’s all for a good cause because the money is going to our Lotus Foundation.”

The Lotus Foundation will get all proceeds whose mission funds, supports, participates in, and promotes charitable projects aimed at advancing social welfare in diverse areas including, but not limited to substance abuse, cerebral palsy, brain tumours, cancer, at risk women and their children, homelessness, and animals in need.

The book will be available to the world on Valentine’s Day 2022 with pre-sale book orders available now exclusively online at Julien’s Auctions.

Exclusive limited editions of the commemorative hardcover book with a special colour cover of The Beatles signed by Ringo Starr and housed in a specially-designed slip case will also be available on the site.
