Beatles Album Sleeves

Whatever your opinion of the music The Beatles made, I reckon there's no denying they had some great Album Sleeve designs - remember this is the 1960's and  maybe the high point of  Sleeve design - the 12" format allowing for rather more input that a CD Cover (actually the last one tipped into the 70's, and is the worst of them). The Beatles made twelve studio albums in the seven years they were together, which is some going in itself. Here are the Sleeve designs in chronological order:

1963 Please Please Me

1963 With the Beatles

1964 A Hard Day’s Night

1964 Beatles For Sale

1965 Help

1965 Rubber Soul

1966 Revolver

1967 Sgt Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band

1968 The Beatles [White Album]

1969 Yellow Submarine

1969 Abbey Road

1970 Let It Be
