Looking Through You features over 300 Rare And Unseen Photographs taken from the archives of The Beatles Book, a monthly magazine devoted to the Fab Four. A unique publication, the stunning images captured by photographer Leslie Bryce are collected in this limited edition numbered slipcase edition, featuring an exclusive facsimile of the 1964 calendar.

When publisher Sean O'Mahony launched 'The Beatles Book', he negotiated unprecedented access to the band at their performances, backstage, in the recording studio and at home. Boasting news of the band, articles and exclusive photography, the contents of The Beatles Book were devoured by fans, increasing its circulation from an initial 80,000 copies to a readership in the millions at its peak. Thousands of photographs were taken, but only a fraction of these were ever used, and even then they were often retouched or altered.
In Looking Through You, over 300 of the most beautiful photographs from the magazine's six-year life have been taken from the original negatives, resulting in a portrait of a band that's at once historically significant and still exciting even half a century later. From small gigs in British theatres to TV appearances and foreign tours, their meteoric rise to fame is captured here through a wonderful lens, making this book a visual treat as well as a story of the wildly successful Beatles Book.
Featuring a foreword from Jo Adams (daughter of Sean O'Mahony), an insightful introduction by Andy Neill and some fascinating information to accompany the photographs, Looking Through You is an important visual record of a musical phenomenon. This individually numbered limited edition of 3,000 copies also includes a facsimile of The Beatles Fan Club calendar of 1964.
