Default Sgt Pepper\'s artwork goes on show

Sgt Pepper's artwork goes on show

Thursday, 10 February, 2005

The artist who designed the album cover for Sgt Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band by The Beatles has given the only copy signed by him to Leeds University.
The print signed by Sir Peter Blake appears in a new permanent exhibition at the university's school of music.

The artist will open the Sir Peter Blake Music Art Gallery on Thursday.

It will also house artwork for albums by Eric Clapton and Paul Weller and the Band Aid and Live Aid singles, each signed by Sir Bob Geldof.

'Iconic image'

The gallery was set up by Simon Warner from the school of music in collaboration with Pete Smith, Peter Blake's music art publisher and a former Leeds University student.

Mr Warner said: "Peter Blake's Sgt Pepper design for The Beatles has emerged as his signature piece, an iconic image that has become the Mona Lisa of rock'n'roll.

"We are thrilled to be the only place in the world where this unique print will be on public display."

Mr Smith said: "The new gallery installation is a fitting and unique tribute to the work of Sir Peter Blake and his place in the popular music art world."
