    Beatles - John Lennon / Yoko Ono's Unfinished Music No. 2: Life with the Lions LP (US Capitol Zapple ST 3337, 1969): Original Four Color Front Cover Screen Printing Positives. From the personal collection of Bert-Co Graphics founder's son, here are the four clear plastic halftone printing plates (Yellow, Red, Blue, Black), each 13.5" x 18.5" in overall size, used to print the front cover of John and Yoko's controversial second record album. The full-bleed front cover image pictures John camped out on the floor next to Yoko's hospital bed at Queen Charlotte's Hospital in London. Yoko had suffered a miscarriage and the hospital would not provide John a bed while she was there, thus the song on this album, "No Bed for Beatle John." Bert-Co had the distinction of printing the first US album covers for the Beatles. A rare and desirable item as the company's archives were destroyed a number of years ago; these items were salvaged by the founder's son. Excellent.
