Ringo Starr's Signed 'Photograph' Book On Sale at Amoeba

Posted by Billy Gil, December 12, 2013 05:40pm | Post a Comment

ringo starr photograph book cover amoebaUPDATE DEC 26, 2013: The Ringo: Photograph book is sold out.

Ringo Starr’s limited-edition, signed book, Photograph, is at Amoeba Hollywood in VERY limited quantities now (only two available in-store) or for online purchase on Amoeba.com. Online orders will ship directly from the publisher with estimated arrival time of February 2014. It’s priced at $600, and each one is signed by Ringo and numbered. (Please note: Photograph book does not qualify for our Super Saturday store sale on December 14th due to its limited nature)

We were pleased to help Genesis Publications launch the book in Hollywood at a special event with Ringo. Below is a great recap of the event, written by Amoeba’s Greg Griffith:

“Every time I see your face it reminds me of the places we used to go,

But all I’ve got is a photograph and I realize you’re not coming back anymore…”

These are the lyrics to the 1973 song, “Photograph” which was co-authored by Beatles Ringo Starr and George Harrison. Not only is the tune itself one of Ringo’s most memorable and enduring as a solo artist, who could have guessed that 40 years later we would get to see, in person, the faces and places that were lamented in the song.
