Peter Blake Creates New Sgt. Pepper Cover To Celebrate 80th Birthday

Sir Peter Blake, the artist of The Beatles‘ Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band, has recreated the iconic album cover.

The redesign came to celebrate the artists 80th birthday. It was posted on the Guardian’s website
with a cool interactive feature so you can see who each face on the cover is.

Many new faces adorn the artwork, including J.K. Rowling, Amy Winehouse, Noel Gallagher, Elton John, Elvis Costello, Eric Clapton, David Bowie and Ian Curtis. It was created for a retrospective at the Wayne Hemingway’s Vintage festival this July in England.

“I’ve chosen people I admire, great people and some who are dear friends,” Blake told the Guardian. “I had a very long list of people who I wanted to go in but couldn’t fit everyone in – I think that shows how strong British culture and its legacy of the last six decades is.”
