Arty-Fact: Often dubbed the “Godfather of British Pop Art”, Sir Peter Blake is best known for co-creating what is arguably the most iconic album cover in the history of popular music: The Beatles’ Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band.
To celebrate the 40th anniversary of Sgt Pepper in 2007, Sir Peter Blake and Apple Corps Ltd agreed to make the album artwork available for art lovers and collectors. It was printed by the famous Coriander Studios in London.

The Plot: Pepperland is a cheerful, music-loving paradise under the sea, home to Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band. They are under siege by the Blue Meanies, a nasty group of music-hating creatures. The Lord Mayor of Pepperland (Dick Emery) dispatches sailor Old Fred (Lance Percival) to Liverpool, England, where he is to recruit the help of The Beatles (John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison, Ringo Starr). The sympathetic Beatles ride a yellow submarine to the occupied Pepperland, where the Blue Meanies have no chance against the Fab Four's groovy tunes.
