Beatles Poster Artist Tony Booth Passes Away in Northwest England

  • Tony Booth, who created many posters for The Beatles in the early 1960s in Liverpool, passed away at Wirral's Arrowe Park Hospital, Northwest England on Wednesday. His son said that Booth battled with cancer and died at 83.

    Tony Booth was from Moreton, Wirral, and made iconic signs for Merseybeat bands in the 1960s.

    According to his son, he made replicas of the posters for his fans and even wrote a book about them. This may be a part of his legacy.

    Mr Booth staged his first exhibition at View Two Gallery on Mathew Street last August after he reproduced 40 of his favorite posters in which he used the same materials that he used over 50 years ago.

    One of his last projects was to create posters for the 60th anniversary celebrations of The Cavern club' this weekend.
