When We Was Fab
By Astrid Kirchherr
About the image
Although collectors may be familiar with several of the images of the early Beatles and other musicians in Hamburg in this book, the photographs in When We Was Fab will never have been viewed in such an extraordinary quality of reproduction.
Each of the 41 images in this very large format book is finely printed in tri-tone and image varnished. The text for the book is printed in gold ink onto a rich black background, following the exact layout created by Astrid Kirchherr.
"I have decided it is time to create one book in which I am totally involved so that it contains the pictures I like most, printed the way I would print them, even down to the text and design, with of course the help of Genesis. This book is for people who are interested in photography in the Sixties and in the way I saw my friends and depicted them in the best way that I could. Therefore, this book is me and that is why it will be the last one. The very last one." - Astrid Kirchherr
