Either Beatles For Sale or Rubber Soul.  They all looks so perfect on both of those covers.  Beatles for Sale they look younger and Rubber Soul they look more grown up.

Definitely REVOLVER. It's just SO cool, and so classic. And Klaus Voorman captured their likenesses PERFECTLY, in quick simple sketches! Beautiful, and probably one of the first pieces of "psychadelic" art.

Sorry, but it's not. It followed a trend, not created it. Pyschedelic album art had been around in jazz for years. Zappa's Freakout (June 66) predates Revolver, as does the quite similar Roger The Engineer (July 66)by The Yardbirds.
Likewise the distorted cover of Rubber Soul is similar to contempory albums by the Dylan and The Byrds. As much as we wish, they didn't event the wheel.  :)

Hard for me to say.  But the most "iconic" cover that will be remembered by everyone has got to be Abbey Road.  How many times has that famous "walk" been copied is shows...........remember "The Simpson's"?????

Ever noticed that even though they were known as 'John, Paul, George, and Ringo', they never posed for an album cover in that order!

Abbey Road

So instantly recognizable, and I love how it doesn't have the name "The Beatles" printed on the front cover. It's so clean... I guess it was unnecessary to put their name on there coz everybody knew it was them.

I think The White Album is absolutely amazing. Have you ever traced your fingers along the letters that say 'The BEATLES'? It's so entrancing, and yet so simple.

I would say Beatles For Sale is my favourite album cover, closely followed by With The Beatles.
I also love the photo on the inside of Love Songs.
(Please Please Me is probably my least favourite cover of the original releases, though Beatles Ballads is my all-time least favourite.)

A Hard Day's Night - A great depiction of the pace and energy of the Beatles during the "fab" years.

Beatles For Sale, for its' beautiful colours and the first cover showing that the Beatles weren't smiling buffoons making funnies at every turn.

With The Beatles is cool and a great image, too.

Help, nice minimal design.

Please Please Me - a bursting image that introduced the band to many people in the UK.

Rubber Soul, cool as...no need to name the Band on the cover.

Revolver - ingenious design and great compression of swinging London and the Beatles' looking in different directions.

I could go on....I don't feel so much for Pepper as I used to, maybe there's too much going on, but the music is divine so all is forgiven.

The Beatles.  Simple, clean white cover with just the band name in small lettering.  Genius.

Abbey Road - iconic and clever

Let It Be - a sombre, detached symbol of the Beatles' divisions.

If pushed, it's got to be Beatles For Sale...

I think every cover is awesome, but I guess my top five would be...

1. Sgt. Pepper
2. Revolver
3. Abbey Road
4. Rubber Soul
5. With the Beatles

I really like Rubber Soul.

But I also like A Hard Days Night cover. I love looking at all of their expressions.

Beatles for Sale is nice too!

It's really hard to pick one.
