"Alan Aldridge burst upon the creative world of sixties' London just like the Beatles, for whom he worked. His imaginative designs and intoxicating images captured the dreams and hallucinations of a generation - in The Beatles Illustrated Lyrics, on album covers for The Who, Cream and Elton John, on the notorious Chelsea Girls poster for Andy Warhol, on innovative covers for Penguin Books." "His career has continued unabated ever since. In the 1970s he produced bestselling children's books, including The Butterfly Ball and The Peacock Party, and the logo for the Hard Rock Cafe, then moved into animation in Los Angeles, working on film and TV projects as well as designing for bands such as Incubus and Tears for Fears." "This illustrated autobiography charts Aldridge's life as a graphic entertainer, covering his whole career from 1963 up to the present. Among the hundreds of images are vivid stories about how the projects came about and Aldridge's encounters with famous people he has met along the way, which included a drawing duel with Salvador Dali, bike riding with Steve McQueen and pitching a film idea to Francis Ford Coppola. The result is a visual feast to delight several generations from the 1960s through to the present day."--BOOK JACKET.
