These are the first beats of the Beatles’ career as only legendary rock cartoonist Mauri Kunnas could tell them. Hilarious moments and details that even dedicated fans won’t remember having heard before. All are told with Kunnas’ characteristically raucous humour and virtuosic drawing skills. The riotous tales from rocking-horse to the recording studio in Abbey Road, where the first singles were laid down. It is a story told a thousand times over but never in quite such a wacky screwball manner.
Mauri Kunnas is a political cartoonist for Finnish newspapers also well known for his work as a children’s illustrator with wonderful anthropomorphic characters. He is also a big Beatles fan!
