50by70 has just announced the release of its third volume entitled Yellow Subversion: The Artwork of Yellow Submarine, a boxed set of five 50 x 70cm screen prints of artwork from the famous Beatles film…

“We’ve collaborated with The Beatles’ Apple Corps and produced a portfolio of screen prints of some of the beautiful artwork from the movie,” explains 50by70’s Tim Fishlock of the project. “There is an accompanying 40 page book featuring an essay by Josh Weinstein (former showrunner and producer of The Simpsons) in which he makes the case for Yellow Submarine being the greatest movie of all time and an inspiration for his career in animation.”

Here’s a look at the box set and its contents:

“Aside from the 16-colour screenprint of John, Paul, George and Ringo peering through those iconic submarine portholes [above, right], we have focused our attention on some of the more obscure characters from the film,” Fishlock continues. “Characters that we think best represent the visionary approach of the animators and that illustrate why the artwork of Yellow Submarine is still as fresh and influential today as it was 44 years ago.”

Yellow Subversion: The Artwork of Yellow Submarine is available in a strictly limited edition of 350 copies priced at £395. The five enclosed screenprints are all printed on 175gsm acid-free Colorplan pristine white stock at 50 x 70cm.
