The Stories Behind 16 Beatles Album Covers

  In some ways, the  Beatles ' album art could be just as fascinating as the music inside. The stories behind 16 of their famous LP covers include a lengthy creative relationship, one-off moments of inspiration and weird experimentation, a memorable public outcry and a very sad goodbye. Five of these 16 features images came courtesy of  late photographer  Robert Freeman, who worked with the Beatles from 1963-66. This fruitful era produced career-defining early cover art for  With the Beatles ,  A Hard Day’s Night ,  Beatles for Sale ,  Help!  and  Rubber Soul , as well as a number of the band's EPs and  John Lennon 's books  In His Own Write  and  A Spaniard in the Works .
