Beetles of Northern England

BeetlesAuthor/Illustrator: Martin Procter

Like millions of people all over the world, Martin Procter has for years had Beatles music on his favourite’s playlist.  While browsing through a second-hand book shop, he found a book containing all the band’s 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.

Highly recommended… What a fantastic book, such a clever way to illustrate the Beatles song lyrics. Spent ages looking at all the illustrations, very clever. 

Genius… Martin Procter is a master of his craft. Wonderfully illustrated. Thought provoking and witty. What more can you ask!
