A rare opportunity to see George Harrison’s handwritten lyrics on display
Taking place on Friday 16 June to Sunday 18 June 2017 at Elms Lesters Painting Rooms, 1-3-5 Flitcroft Street, London, WC2H 8DH
Genesis Publications is hosting a free exhibition celebrating the UK launch of the book, I ME MINE – The Extended Edition by George Harrison.
Visitors to the pop-up exhibition will have a rare chance to see reproductions of Harrison’s handwritten lyrics as well as personal photographs and commentary taken from the new book.
Originally published in 1980, The Extended Edition includes lyrics and photographs discovered recently by his wife Olivia, including a collection of lyrics found in a piano bench at Harrison’s home studio. One such song was Hey Ringo, thought to be from 1970/1971, and previously unseen – including by Ringo Starr himself who first saw the lyrics at the recent Los Angeles exhibition of the book.
Rare limited edition books also on display will include: I Me Mine (original 1980 edition), Songs by George Harrison 1 and 2, Concert for George, Fifty Years Adrift and Live in Japan. Visitors will also enjoy a preview of the recently announced Revolver 50 Collage series by Klaus Voormann, Love That Burns – A Chronicle of Fleetwood Mac by Mick Fleetwood, Transformer by Lou Reed & Mick Rock, and the Genesis 100 special boxset celebrating 100 editions since 1974.
Also on show will be the full range of Genesis Publications’ limited edition, signed books and prints. Publications and prints by artists such as Jimmy Page, Ronnie Wood, Ringo Starr, Yoko Ono, Pete Townshend, Bob Dylan, Paul Weller and Jeff Beck will be displayed alongside those featuring the Rolling Stones, Jimi Hendrix, The Beatles, Traveling Wilburys, The Who as well as the recent Vogue – Voice Of A Century anthology.
