This 128 li'l paperback is a quite the visual marvel of cutting edge (remember this is 1968) images and style and in full color. The story is explained in regular and cartoon text that bounce off each other while these words snake and slide around the great images from the film and drawings exclusive to this

Acid-drenched artwork from the animated film of the same name. For me, the images have some resemblance to the grotesque cartoons in the work of Monty Python illustrator Terry Gilliam. Pepperland may strike the contemporary reader as sixties naiveté, but its utopian impulses resonate with the work of nonsense poets like Edward Lear and the writings of John Lennon himself. The darker story of the invasion of Pepperland by the Blue Meanies opens itself to allegorical interpretation—in addition to ...more

Very cute with images from the movie with some footnotes and an article "The Origin of the Yellow Submarine." (I don't think the footnotes really add anything nor does the article.) I remember seeing the movie in the theater. Did you know that there is a set of Yellow Submarine trading cards? Actually, two sets, one normal size and one 4 x 6 inches in size. You can probably find them on Ebay.
