Being for the Benefit of Mr. Kite! - a new recreation of the poster

(1/2) > >>

Pete:
Hi everyone,

I really wanted to share this with you. I'm a designer in London (and massive Beatles fan) and I have spent the last six months recreating the Victorian circus poster that inspired Being for the Benefit of Mr Kite! I used the methods that were used to create the original in 1843, so the poster is letterpress printed - by hand - and the illustrations were recommissioned from a well-known British wood-engraver.

You can see the result of my work here:

I hope you like it!

Best,
Pete

(no pun intended)


P.S. I checked with Dmitry before posting this and it has his blessing.

Bobber:
That looks great, Pete. A fine job. It's a bit expensive for my current wallet tho.

Normandie:

That's really nice, Pete! Thank you for sharing. It's a bit steep for me right now, too, but I hope you have brisk sales.   :)

Pete:
Thanks Bobber / Normandie. It's important to me that real Beatles fan approve of what I've done.

nimrod:
