Beetles of Northern England
ISBN 978-1-906377-48-9
Hard back

Like millions of people all over the world, Martin Procter has for years had Beatles music on his favouriteís playlist.  While browsing through a second-hand book shop, he found a book containing all the bandís song lyrics and looking through it, was struck by the idea that many of the titles could be illustrated as beetles. Back at his studio, he began working on ideas to combine the song titles and imagery together, resulting in over one hundred tracks completed to date. Here, in this unusual musical field guide, are his first group of specimens.
