Description

    A Full Set of Psychedelic Beatles Portrait Posters By Richard Avedon for Stern magazine (Germany, 1968). In 1967 the Beatles commissioned famed fashion photographer Richard Avedon to do a set of portraits of the group, which would initially be made available to fans as posters distributed through three publications: LOOK magazine in the US, the Daily Express newspaper in the UK, and Stern magazine in Germany. These images transcend typical music memorabilia and are sought today by both fans of the group, and collectors of fine art and fashion photography. The Blaschke collection contains all four original posters as issued by Stern, printed on very high quality paper stock. The posters measure approximately 18.75" x 27", and are listed as first printings in the bottom border area. Very Good overall condition, with minor edge wear. Includes a copy of the April 21, 1968 issue of Stern (Good) which first published the images and included the poster order offer for Germany. Also with a small four-page flier for the Daily Express offer in England (Very Good). From the Uwe Blaschke Beatles Collection.
