    Description

    The Beatles Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band Album Production Color Keys (Capitol, 1967) The Fab Four's groundbreaking Sgt. Pepper album featured wonderful, colorful graphics. Peter Blake's incredible group shot of the band, surrounded by faces from the past and present, including Marilyn Monroe, Bob Dylan, even Huntz Hall from the Bowery Boys! This group of production art includes four-color film separations for the front and back cover and the inside gatefold portrait of the lads, dressed in their colorful Pepper suits. This is from the original first American pressing of the album; later pressings had very slight changes made to the wording on the back cover. This is incredibly rare production art; many times, items like this (created to give a color guide to the press operators who printed the album slicks) were routinely tossed out after printing ended. Both groups of film were folded down the middle for storage; other than that, they remain in Very Good condition, and would look very attractive framed.
