REVOLVER COVER

1966

The Beatles departed from their earlier records and pushed the boundaries of rock and pop music by releasing their innovative and seminal album Revolver. Capturing The Beatles’ new direction, and visually representing their sound, Klaus Voormann’s Revolver cover artwork became instantly iconic.
