Hand-drawn story of Stuart Sutcliff and Astrid Kirchherr

The woman John Lennon could never get. That’s Astrid Kirchherr. The man who could? Stuart Sutcliff, the fifth Beatle. What story is more interesting than the rise of the Fab Four? The story of the Fab Fifth: Stu and his lover Astrid. Germany 1960. She’s a photographer, he’s an artist and bassist in the soon-to-be biggest band in the world.

She creates the ‘Beatle Haircut’ in iconic pics for the band, he leaves the band to paint in her mother’s attic and pursue his love for her. This is all told in beautiful monochrome hand-drawn frames by Arne Bellstorf.
