To celebrate the Beatles’ 50th anniversary 50by70 has published the first ever set of fine art prints of the stunning artwork from the classic 1968 animated film Yellow Submarine. Yellow Subversion — The Artwork of Yellow Submarine is a strictly limited edition boxed set of five full colour screen prints accompanied by a book featuring an essay by the legendary Simpsons writer, showrunner and producer Josh Weinstein who describes how the film inspired his career in animation.
Aside from the 16 colour print of John, Paul, George and Ringo peering through those iconic submarine portholes, we have focused our attention on some of the more obscure characters from the film. Characters that we think best represent the visionary approach of art director Heinz Edelmann and his team of animators and that illustrate why the artwork of Yellow Submarine is still as fresh and influential today as it was 44 years ago.
