Ringo Publishing “Octopus’ Garden” Kids Book
Ringo Starr will publish a children’s book based around his 1969 Beatles Abbey Road classic, “Octopus’s Garden.” USA Today reported that the book, which will feature artwork by Aliens Love Pants illustrator Ben Cort, will be published in the UK on October 24th and here in the States in January 2014. The first edition will come with a previously unheard track and a reading of the story by Ringo.
Out now is Ringo’s first eBook, titled Photograph, featuring never-before seen shots of him throughout his life — including during the Beatles’ heyday. Photograph is released in conjunction with the new Grammy Museum Exhibit, Ringo: Peace & Love, which features selections of the book’s photos.
