May 31st 2013: Ringo’s new ebook, PHOTOGRAPH - a collection of his never-before-seen photographs - is now available on iBookstore and at RingoPhotograph.com
Unseen images taken by Ringo and from his personal archives - accompanied by his audio, text and video captions - are showcased here for the very first time to give unprecedented insight into the life of a Beatle. The ebook is available to preorder now before its official launch on June 12 2013, exclusively on the iBookstore.
'These are shots that no one else could have.' – Ringo
Ringo shares forgotten photographs and stories of his childhood home, family holidays and all-night parties on his road to stardom. He candidly captures his Beatles bandmates in pensive and playful moments: washing, eating, recording, smoking, drinking and playing monopoly. Pictures of ‘the boys’ are joined by Ringo’s travel photography, taking you inside the car with The Beatles as they toured the world. From the position of a friend, bandmate and skilled photographer, Ringo portrays four lads from Liverpool trying to live normal lives amidst the frenzy that surrounded them. This is the album of Ringo’s life, from his time in hospital, where he played a drum for the first time, to growing up in Liverpool amidst the excitement of the emerging Merseybeat scene, to playing in the biggest band in the world.
'A good time was had by all in those days.' – Ringo
Readers can pick up and zoom in on 140 photographs as they scroll through Ringo’s memoir, while 69 audio clips narrated by Ringo tell the previously unheard stories behind the photos. Ringo has also filmed 11 exclusive videos for this ebook, featuring music and animation and new interviews from Ringo Starr. Ringo’s first multimedia edition is a must-have for fans of The Beatles and anyone passionate about modern music.
‘Genesis did a great job on my book POSTCARDS FROM THE BOYS – so why would I go anywhere else? I did my first book with the father and now my second with his son.’ – Ringo
