To celebrate the Beatles’ 50th anniversary 50by70 has published the first ever set of fine art prints of the stunning artwork from the classic 1968 animated film 'Yellow Submarine'. Released today, the 28th of November, the £395.00 volume is limited to just 350 copies worldwide... a true collector’s piece!
'Yellow Subversion — The Artwork Of Yellow Submarine' in it's strictly limited edition boxed set, containing five full colour screen prints, is also accompanied by a book featuring an essay by the legendary 'Simpsons' writer, showrunner and producer Josh Weinstein who describes how the film influenced animation and inspired his career.
As Josh Weinstein writes, ‘Before 'Yellow Submarine' it was a mild, goody-goody animated world of personality-less gloved mice and cartoon bears stealing pic-a-nic baskets. But after 'Yellow Submarine' it was a wholly different world of animation. It wasn’t just for kids. It was satire and art and most of all, subversion.’
For the 5 prints, aside from the 16 colour print of John, Paul, George and Ringo peering through those iconic submarine portholes, 50by70 have focused their attention on some of the more obscure characters from the film. Characters that "best represent the visionary approach of art director Heinz Edelmann and his team of animators and that illustrate why the artwork of 'Yellow Submarine' is still as fresh and influential today as it was 44 years ago."
