The Beatles Faces Recreated in Typewritten Lyrics

The likenesses of all four members of The Beatles — from left to right: Paul McCartney, John Lennon, George Harrison and Ringo Starr — were created by artist David Hollier on these vintage Royal typewriters.

Paul’s face is made up of the lyrics from the songs “I’ve Just Seen a Face” and “I Saw Her Standing There.”

John’s facial features were formed from the lyrics of the songs “A Hard Day’s Night” and “Please, Please Me.”

On the face of George (my favorite Beatle) you can read the lyrics from two songs he penned, “I Need You” and “You Like Me Too Much.”

Ringo sang lead on the songs “Boys” and “I Wanna Be Your Man,” so it makes sense that Hollier would have used these songs to recreate his unique visage.

I wish I had been able to get a close up shot of some of the lyrics, but the plexiglass vitrine protecting this artwork from curious hands at the Scope Art Fare also created a pretty gnarly glare. This piece is priced at $10,500 for all four typewriters and the pages wrapped around their rollers! David Hollier is represented by New Apostle Gallery located in Brooklyn, New York.
