Another "Help!" photo book

Coming September 8, 2015: Another "Help!" book.
We have previously told you about "Eight Arms To Hold You", a crowd funded photo book concentrating on restored photos from the set of the "Help!" film, published to coincide with the film's fiftieth anniversary. Looks like they weren't the only ones with that idea. Specialist set photographer Emilio Lari was invited by director Richard Lester to shoot stills of the production at Twickenham Studios and document behind-the-scenes larking about as the band relaxed in their hotel between takes. This is a collection of some of his photos, and most of the photos in this collection is said to be previously unpublished. The 144 pages book is called "The Beatles: Photographs from the Set of Help!" and has an introduction by Richard Lester.
Due to the fact that the "Help!" film was recently restored (oh all right, 2007) and rereleased on DVD and even more recently (2013) released on Blu-ray for the first time, there isn't going to be much in the way of 50th anniversary celebrations coming from the Beatles/Apple - hence these books are coming to the rescue for anniversary buffs.

If you are referring to 'Eight Arms to Hold You', it is complete and currently being printed. This book is purely an account of the images taken by Emilo. I think you will find 'Eight Arms' to be a very different visual experience. Emilo's work is fantastic and each book has there place telling a different perspective of a very interesting period of transition for The Beatles. Best Paul
