In 1985 artist Keith West was introduced to George Harrison and so began a close collaboration to produce a stunning set of watercolours illustrating the composer's many memorable songs.The method of production entailed the completion of detailed pencil studies after careful discussion on all the lyrics. Keith, one of the finest botanical watercolour artists in the world, soon found himself travelling regularly from his cottage in North Wales to Oxfordshire to discuss with George the interpretations of his song lyrics in order to prepare the illustrations for this volume. To complement these delightful images the artist has hand-lettered the words to the songs. The lyrics are embellished with additional small paintings that posses an irresistible charm.

Songs by George Harrison is a superb collection of art and was produced in two forms: as a deluxe edition book plus record set and as limited edition prints developed from the full-page plates in the book, the larger area allowing further expression of the imagery suggested by the text.

Sixty of George Harrison's songs illustrated by Keith West.
