About the image
A signed, two-volume, limited edition set, Hamburg Days presents The Beatles as seen through the photographs of Astrid Kirchherr and the art of Klaus Voormann.

With a foreword by George Harrison, an afterword by Paul McCartney and commissioned artworks and recollections (over 80,000 words and more than 250 photographs, watercolors, drawings and paintings) Hamburg Days is a memoir of the years between 1960-1963, when Kirchherr, Voormann and the young Liverpool lads first met. 

"
Klaus was part of a group of The Beatles' friends in Hamburg. Now he has made some 'memory drawings' of our Hamburg days which are not only beautiful drawings in themselves, but which capture the spirit of the times. The really good thing about Klaus, his drawings, and this book, however, is that - unlike many other people – he was actually there! – Paul McCartney"
