Throughout The Beatles' career, official magazine The Beatles Book captured their development from British pop fledglings to international megastars. Photographer Leslie Bryce travelled the world with the band and supplied shots for the 77 editions of the monthly magazine . The photographs of the Fab Four were taken from 1963 to 1968 for the magazine but they never made it into print. There were far too many pictures to print at the time. Now the best are in a book taking its title from the Beatles song I'm Looking Through You.
Looking Through You is published by Omnibus Press, £39.95.
