TONY BOOTH – 22nd June 1933 to 11th January 2017
It is with regrets that we must announce that Tony Booth passed away peacefully on 11th January 2017 after a long battle with cancer. From all the family, we want to thank everyone for their kind words and tributes paid to such an iconic & loving man. We want to extend our gratitude to The Cavern Club, The Beatles Story, the BBC, Universal Music Group and the Liverpool Echo Newspaper for their touching tributes.
We will endeavour to keep his legacy alive and promote his artwork wherever we can, which was one of his last wishes. As you can see on his website, Tony recreated most of his original artwork over the past few years for fans and also to tie in with his exhibition at the International Beatleweek Festival last summer. These where all professionally captured at the time so high quality full sized prints of all his listed poster collection are available to purchase for £95 each plus P&P and will come embossed with his unique personal monogram for authenticity but unfortunately not signed. We do have some prints that he had already signed prior to going into hospital and these would be £250 each plus P&P, however these are limited to what he has left over.
We do also have a number of his full hand painted posters that he had left in his studio which are both signed and embossed by him. These are some of his last ever works.
If you would like to obtain any of Tony’s artwork then you can place an online order on the purchase poster page or email the address below and we will make this possible on his behalf. If you would like to purchase of the remaining signed artwork by Tony then please drop us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will let you know about availability.
– Tony’s Family
Hello, my name is Tony Booth and welcome to my personal website. I am most notably recognised for being the original poster artist for The Beatles during the early 1960’s. You can read more about my history on the ‘About Tony‘ page or over on Wikipedia.
Due to many requests, over the past few years I have started to reproduce my posters in the exact same way that I produced them in the 1960’s (even using the same roll of paper I used back then) and have been selling them to Beatles enthusiasts all over the world. I have launched my website to give anyone the opportunity to order some of my artwork.
For all the posters you can see on my website; I am selling them either as hand painted posters for £1500 each or as high quality prints for £95 each. I accept orders from anywhere in world and they will be posted out to you with a tracking code and in a secure tube.
“The original Beatles Poster Artist Tony Booth now in his eighties, has now produced a rare collection of his 1960’s gig posters, each one is an exact reproduction of his 1960’s originals, double-crown size (30”x 20”) in the exact same way he produced them back them. You can now purchase either a high quality printed posters or a hand-painted reproduction of your choice. Every poster is signed by the artist and stamped with his embossed monogram for protection against forgery. All posters are also accompanied with historical notes relating to the event, plus a signed certificate of authenticity. Your poster will become a collectors piece in time and will be a good investment for the future.”
I have never commissioned or licensed anyone to reproduce my artwork; so this is the only place you can obtain an authentic piece of my Beatles history.
