About this product
- DescriptionMeet the Beatles . . . right at the beginning of their careers. This gorgeous, high-energy graphic vel is an intimate peek into the early years of the world's greatest rock band. The heart of Baby's In Black is a love story. The fifth Beatle, Stuart Sutcliffe, falls in love with the beautiful Astrid Kirchherr when she recruits the Beatles for a sensational (and famous) photography session during their time in Hamburg. When the band returns to the UK, Sutcliffe quits, becomes engaged to Kirchherr, and stays in Hamburg. A year later, his meteoric career as a modern artist is cut short when he dies unexpectedly. The book ends as it begins, with Astrid, alone and adrift; but with a te of hope: her life is incomparably richer and more directed thanks to her friendship with the Beatles and her love affair with Sutcliffe. Author/illustrator Arne Bellstorf tells this tender story with stirring, romantic black-and-white artwork. Baby's In Black is based on a true story.
