  DESCRIPTION

ORIGINAL 7" X 11" GERMAN ISSUE JOHN LENNON "WHITE ALBUM" INSERT PORTRAIT PHOTOGRAPH
SIGNED BY JOHN LENNON
AUTOGRAPHED FOR GERMAN FAN "TO BERND WITH LOVE" AND ADDS FACIAL CARICATURE DRAWING AND DATE.


BACK IN MID 1974, A 25 YEAR-OLD BEATLES FAN IN GERMANY NAMED 'BERND' HAD THIS WILD IDEA TO TO WRITE JOHN LENNON IN NEW YORK. HIS REQUEST FOR JOHN'S AUTOGRAPH WENT BEYOND COMPREHENSION. BERND SHIPPED JOHN ALL NINE OF HIS SOLO LP RELEASES TO THAT DATE FROM 'TWO VIRGINS" TO "WALLS AND BRIDGES", TWO BEATLES ALBUMS "THE BEATLES' STORY" AND "SGT. PEPPER'S", THE POSTCARD AND POSTER FROM "IMAGINE", THE BOOKLET FROM "WALLS AND BRIDGES" AND FINALLY JOHN'S PORTRAIT PHOTO FROM THE beatles'  "WHITE ALBUM".

APPROXIMATELY SIX MONTHS LATER, BERND RECEIVED HIS BOX BACK ON FEBRUARY 24, 1975. AMAZINGLY, JOHN HAD SIGNED ALL 15 ITEMS. IN ADDITION, HE WROTE ON MOST ITEMS THE YEAR "75" AND ADDED HIS FACIAL CARICATURE DRAWING!

HERE WE PROUDLY OFFER ONE OF THESE ITEMS SIGNED BY JOHN LENNON - "THE BEATLES" (WHITE ALBUM) INSERT PORTRAIT PHOTOGRAPH, FROM THE GERMAN ISSUE OF THE DOUBLE LP ALBUM. john had autographed the original 7" X 11" color photo beautifully upon the lower portion of the photo AGAINST his yellow t-shirt in sharp black ballpoint pen. He dedicates it "to bernd with love john lennon", then adds the drawing of his facial caricature along with the date "75".

as stated in an article about this story in 'beatlefan' magazine (see article below) "the fact that he actually signed the entire contents might have been because it impressed him that such a box was sent from germany. or maybe he was just in a good mood after returning to yoko. who knows?".

needless to say, "white album" photos signed by john lennon are extremely rare. this example with its iron clad provenance and the quality and clarity of the signature is simply astonishing.

includes a signed letter of provenance from "bernd" in german, and a copy of the 'beatlefan' magazine article.

ACCOMPANIED BY A LETTER OF AUTHENTICITY FROM FRANK CAIAZZO.
