“The Man With Kaleidoscope Eyes: The Art of Alan Aldridge” has been released in the U.S. on the heels of an exhibition of the same name at the Design Museum in London. Among the artist’s works is “The Beatles Illustrated Lyrics,” an award-winning anthology. Describing the project in his newest book, Aldridge writes, “I approached seventy of the world’s best illustrators to contribute. What was left, or what needed to be replaced because it was too risqué to be published, I did myself. I saw the book as an illustration of the sixties.” (Alan Aldridge / Abrams)
