NEW YORK, Nov. 17, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- When it comes to gifting there is nothing more timeless than a book that expresses interest and showcases an affectionate attention to a person's passions. For all the Beatles fans and collectors out there, look no more, Tom Murray's Mad Day Out With The Beatles is the visual book, created by Paul Skellett and Simon Weitzman, that dives into the details, backstage, culture of the 60's and anecdotes, that made the last publicity photoshoot done by the group before it split up, so glorious: Tom Murray's Mad Day Out With The Beatles.
Internationally acclaimed photographer, Tom Murray, left his house on July 28th 1968 not knowing he would step into the most memorable photoshoot of his early career. Waiting for him were John, Paul, George & Ringo, of The Beatles, along with hurdles of screaming fans that pushed the group to move constantly from location to location and unknowingly inspiring the name of the famous collection of 23 photographs. The book draws from the legendary impact that the band had-and continues to have- on society. Through Tom Murray's photographs, memories and tales the book tells a visual story of how the Beatles weren't only a music sensation but a phenomenon that influenced generations.
By retracing the locations that made the backdrop of the Mad Day photoshoot: The Docklands, Old Street Station (where Paul McCartney nearly fell off the roof), Regents Park, Paul McCartney's house in St. John's Wood, St. Pancras Church Garden and Wapping Pier Head – the book depicts the playful and unexpected characters of each member of the band and makes the reader dive into the energy of those years.
Tom Murray's Mad Day Out With The Beatles is presented in a slipcase and consists of 120 pages, with every copy of the edition personally signed and numbered by Tom along with an original limited edition Mad Day poster. The book can be ordered online for $100.00 through Archivum's publishing website, limited availability: http://archivumuk.businesscatalyst.com/#tommurray
