The Beatles ruled the airwaves and dominated the media when the July 14, 1967 issue of Life magazine (Asian Edition) hit the stands. With a portrait of the Fab Four gracing the cover, the publishers knew they'd have a "Sell out" on their hands. This poster was created by the publishers as a point-of-purchase advertisement that the issue was now on sale. Posters from this sort of advertising are extremely hard to come by as most were thrown away shortly after display. By this time, Beatlemania had taken over the world, with the group leading the "British Invasion" of the U.S. a few years earlier. 1967 was the year of Sgt Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band, and influential albums Abbey Road and The Beatles would be released the following year. The poster has been linen backed and restored, previously showing tears in the top section. This is a very rare poster for the Beatle completist to find! Fine/Very Fine on Linen.
