Original first printing, STERN 1967 and PPP printers as called for, ofthese important POP posters. Created by Richard Avedon in 1967 for STERN magazine and have been included in POP ART shows and Museums all over the world. In 1967 The Beatles company "Nems" contracted Richard Avedon to create the design and then gave the distribution rights to different outlets in different countries. The Publications that would handle the distribution were: in the USA "LOOK" magazine where you could order your set with a pullout tab, and send away for your set to come in the mail for $1.50. In England it was the Daily Express Newspaper that handled distribution. In Europe it was "Stern" magazine that distributed the posters and they were sold at Newstands in special presentation boxes. All 4 printings were simultaneous in 1967 and there were 4 different printers, one from each country that printed the posters for their respective Publication. The Stern and Daily Express posters were similar in size while the Look version was slightly bigger . There are no subsequent or later printings that would be considered legitimate, only the 1967 printing is considered the authentic original. These posters were produced to go on walls and it is very rare to find ones without tears , creasing or pin-holes.

The black and white image measures 100cm x 40cm.
