Beatlemania may not have broken out again, but the Fab Four’s Anthology series is certainly selling by the million across the globe. This week sees the release of the second part of the three-strong Anthology collection. London design consultancy The Team has worked on the whole project, from CD and tape sleeves to posters, 48-page booklets, point-of-sale material and advertising. Design director Richard Ward worked on the previous release,The Beatles – Live at the BBC, and The Team was appointed by Apple for the Anthology project as a result. The Team commissioned six artists to create concepts for the covers. The surviving Beatles picked out work by their old friend Klaus Voorman, who designed the group’s Revolver cover in the 1960s. The result is a montage of images which works across all three parts of the Anthology.
