The Beatles' London: A Guide to 467 Beatles Sites
Interlink Books, $20:
It appears that the Beatles left their collective footprints on every inch of London. With this remarkable guide, authors Piet Schreuders, Mark Lewisohn and Adam Smith have certainly done their homework. From Soho and Islington to Chelsea and Kensington, as well as the outer regions, the guide features detailed information on where the Beatles lived and played and where some of their most well-known photographs were taken. The last includes the famous shot of the foursome crossing Abbey Road. (To take the shot, freelance photographer Iain Macmillan balanced himself and his Hasselblad precariously on a stepladder in the middle of the street.) The book includes film and photo shoots from "A Hard Day's Night," "Help!" and "Magical Mystery Tour."
