Rare early pictures of The Beatles in Liverpool by photographer Michael Ward have been collected for the first time in a limited edition boxed-set, ‘A Day In The Life’.

The handmade box-set includes 24 individual lithographs of photographs of The Beatles taken by Ward in Liverpool on February 19, 1963, the day the band went to number one for the first time in the UK charts with “Please Please Me”.

The new Genesis publication will be available on the anniversary, February 19, in a signed, limited edition of 750 copies – which includes the 24 prints and a 64-page book, hand-bound in Indian silk, each book individually numbered and hand-signed. The box—sets are priced at £450 and order details are available on www.genesis-publications.com.

Coinciding with the box-set, the images will also go on show at a special exhibition at the Square One gallery in London’s King’s Road, running from February 19 – March 4.
